BLOG 365

Blog 365
For the last 3 weeks I have been teaching some members of my village craft group how to make a memorabilia box. They are a very able and enthusiastic group, willing to try any sort of craft. We did the simplest construction (without a decorative lid) and here’s mine which is now ‘in stock’ until the next occasion comes around when I need a suitable gift.

Our house has a long corridor which just lends itself to displaying quilts on floor-standing wooden rails. On each of the four 18”-deep window sills, there is a prolific house plant which eventually outgrows its space and dies from the centre outwards. So to regenerate the plant every year I need to take loads of cuttings and replant them in the greenhouse. Soon they start to flourish and they are brought inside again to make a lovely show of colour against the quilts lining the corridor.

This week most of my studio time has been taken up with progress on the alternative Welsh quilt (one day I will come up with an appropriate name for it). Although it will probably only take you a few seconds to read what I am writing and see what I am showing, just remember that this constitutes a considerable amount of creative time for me!

I love to be where my ironing surface is, as it is a sea of colour. I am surrounded by it and it makes me very happy .What’s not to like eh?
