Foxy Quilt & a day trip …
24/02/2018 § 2 Comments
Let’s start with some sleeping foxies. They’re all curled up on a chilly night (of which there have been many over the past week), with their noses tucked into their tails. Ears though are alert, listening for the sound of anyone approaching their secret den. Snuggle up foxies …
I picked up a sample of Tula Pink fabrics that formed the starting point for this quilt and then set about teaming them up with others to create this vibrant pink, purple & mustard quilt with just a touch of cool aqua. The colours are much prettier than in the photos. Winter quilt photos are such a challenge!
On a day trip to Bath yesterday, I actually discovered another fabric shop – yes, I know – how could I have missed Mark Pickles Sewing Studio? One of my students told me about the shop and it’s a treasure trove of beautiful fabrics, many from my favourite designers Lewis & Irene. As you might guess, I came away with a few metres of this and that – well, it would have been rude not to!
Bath was very beautiful in yesterday’s chilly sunshine. The easterly wind was bitter but the magic of this, one of my favourite, cities couldn’t subdue my delight at spending a few hours there …
Aaahhh – I must visit again soon.
This afternoon, I’m going to stitch around another quilt whilst watching Wales playing rugby in Dublin. There’s a beef casserole in the oven, to which herby dumplings will be added later on – just what’s needed to keep out the cold.
Wrap up warm and enjoy the weekend.
