August 2013


I haven’t ‘created’ much since the last diary entry. In fact, I had just over two weeks when I didn’t go near my sewing machine!!!!


We needed a new boiler and it meant a re-site from the chimney breast in the dining room to the airing cupboard in the workroom, both  rooms I work in, so everything got packed away. Once the boiler was in, then it was the big clean up and sorting out the chimney area. While this was all going on I painted both the upstairs and downstairs bathrooms!!! Like to keep busy!!! In fact this month has been all about house maintenance.


Once all that was done then I made myself two shirts and finished off two quilt tops that I had started in class – another two to add to the pile of those that need quilting!!!! I also finished of the Owl made from 1” pieces.


And finally with a huge amount of work from Tony, my husband, the person that does all the formatting and editing of my class hand-outs and maintains this website, he has created a series of short videos (on this site under videos!!) on the quilt-as-you-go method that I teach. Hopefully, time permitting we will be creating some more inspirational/educational videos later this year. A huge thank you to Tony for all his support and help.
