End of year …

30/12/2017 § 6 Comments

quick catch up.

Since November, time seems to have absolutely flown by and whilst I’ve been clicking away on my camera and phone, nothing has made it to my blog, so here’s a lightning whizz – Open Studio, students, Kaffe Fassett, my old home, new quilts – here goes …

The Kaffe Fassett exhibition which has been at Mottisfont Abbey since September and ends in January, has been the destination for many of my excursions over recent months.  I can’t get enough of his fabrics, colours and designs.  I went to see him give a lecture back at the end of November and it was interesting to hear what inspired him – by coincidence, many of the same things that inspire me.

I have other photos on my phone of the Salisbury Christmas market where I spent a bone-chilling 4 days at the beginning of December – admittedly my chalet was better insulated than most as there were quilts hanging up all around the inside.  There was a lovely atmosphere though I could cheerfully have throttled a lifesize model Santa Claus who waded through the same few songs whenever anybody walked past and his sensor set him off!  I was seriously in dispute with him about it being ‘the most wonderful time of the year’!!

Since Christmas Day when J2 and I spent a very peaceful time together, I’ve seen a few friends from near and far, which is always special at this time of year.  I do enjoy the company of friends.

Winchester has yet again missed all the snow for which I’m disappointed and relieved in equal measure.

I’m looking forward to some quiet quilting and gentle planning of projects for the new year and wish you all Blwyddyn Newydd Dda (Happy New Year).

    The exhibition is so inspiring. They painted 5 rooms to his specification, in vivid colours, in which to hang his textiles. They really set off his work.

    THANKS for the swatch of COLOUR! 😀
    I’ve got almost a meter of snow on my lawn and have been enduring a week of minus 25C ish DAYtime highs and 30s windchills! – I needed the WARM hues and NON-whiteness!!

    Hoping that You and your Family have a WONDERFUL NEW YEAR!!
