First quilt completed - I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it! It's definitely not perfect but I love the finished result and hope that my new grandson to be will be equally happy with it :) I used Rural Jardin fabric by Moda and a pattern from
My next quilt project is a crazy nine patch for a seat pad, I'll post pictures when it's done.

So exciting - New Gallery at the Wharf

For quite some time the Art and Craft Guild of Lancashire,which I belong to, has been pursuing the dream of an art and craft gallery at Burscough Wharf and it's now so close we can almost touch it. This is so exciting as it's a lovely position and is nearing the end of a complete makeover of the old buildings whilst retaining it's character.

It opens on Valentine's weekend with fire eaters, jugglers, stilt walkers and other attractions so will be well worth a visit if you are anywhere near Burscough.

New Year - old interests!

Well I hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Year even if it was a bit chilly!

I decided it was too cold to chizzle the icy path to the studio/garage and dusted off the old sewing machine instead. I made a set of the cutest little bags for my granddaughter from 'The Perfect Handmade Bag' then a couple of handy shopping bags to replace those supermarket plastic bags.
Here's a photo of some fabric I've had lying around for years so I used it to try out the cover bag in the Bag Making Bible
another lovely book. I'd forgotten how much I love sewing:)
