Aurelia

19/10/2017 § 1 Comment

from the Latin aureus, meaning Golden

Although I’ve been away from my blog for a while, I haven’t been idle.  My studio has been humming to the sound of sewing machines (yes, another Janome Horizon has joined my teaching studio) and as well as teaching patchwork classes here at home, I’ve also been busy working on my own projects.

Aurelia is a recent finish.  She’s been in my head for absolutely ages and it’s been a treat to create what was for so long an image that I longed to touch.10

Oh, how I love this quilt.  Almost 30 fabrics capturing the shades and delights of Autumn.
There have been days in October where the sky has been the clearest, deepest blue and I needed to hold on to those colours – leaves, berries, darkness and light and all sunset shades in between.  This will be a show quilt – to take out to talks and presentations – definitely a keeper!

Here’s the White Birch that dominates our garden, on a crisp morning a few weeks ago.

and some of the sunflowers and Japanese anemones from down by the veg plot.

How I love Autumn.  It’s always been my favourite season of the year.  Before she arrived, I ventured for a late summer jaunt to Cornwall and was treated to a week when I could actually bask in warm sunshine.  I missed the collies who stayed at home with J2, but enjoyed daily walks for miles and miles along the coastal path – a special place for us.

Back home and feeling the need to light an evening fire to keep my toes warm.  I’m working on a Snowball quilt – hope that’s not tempting fate!!!

What are you working on at the moment?  Is Autumn a source of inspiration for you?

I’ve come away to spend some time by the sea and the collies and I have been blessed with the most amazing week of weather – high tides, sunshine, fishing boats and beach walks, wide blue skies and magical sunsets …

A quilt has been finished – I sat outside overlooking the harbour whilst hand-stitching the binding and then promptly took the quilt for a walk up onto the coastal path, for a late afternoon photoshoot …

and I’m hoping to link up with Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it up Friday later on today.  The quilt is a commission and perfectly captures the colours of the waves, sky, sails, white horses and seagulls.

Walks along the coastal path every day have meant that precious memories have been revisited and laid peacefully to rest …

We managed a brisk walk on the beach before the rain arrived this morning and I’ve taken so many photos of waves!  I love this place and our week is disappearing all too fast.

Hope you’re enjoying your week, wherever you are.
