Patchwork for all seasons
25/04/2018 § 1 Comment
The four seasons, that are so defined in our imaginations, body clocks, flora and fauna seem to be skipping by at an alarming rate this year. Is that an age thing, do you suppose? I’m hardly out of winter woollies before it’s time to find my shorts and sandals!
I’ve found over the years, that my patchwork inspiration is much affected by the seasons. Last year, I remember blogging about Christmas in July and no sooner had I written the post than New Year celebrations and fireworks were upon us – or so it seemed.
I’m currently sorting out dates for Autumn workshops. I’ve decided to take a bit of time out for myself over the summer so that everything is set up and raring to go for the Autumn patchwork season. With that in mind, I’m going to rationalise the workshops that I offer and run favourite classes with seasonal themes. Think Table Runners for Autumn, Spring and Christmas – possibly Summer & Winter ones too. What do you think?
I have SO many ideas for workshops and a queue of eager students wanting to join in, so watch this space and I’ll let you know when the dates are all sorted. There’ll also be photos of Wales, a textile collage like nothing I’ve ever created before and updates from my garden which has just woken up to the fact that Spring has arrived and everything needs to grow very fast (especially those perennial favourites – bindweed and sticky weed)!
