Zero stitching for the past few weeks, lots of life’s ups and downs instead. My view of the great outdoors no longer looks like this –

In search of consolation we spent a day in our favourite city – Liverpool – and visited the excellent Maritime Museum down at the Albert Dock. Warm sunny weather (what a treat for November in England!) helped too.

No new stitching of my own to show (but thanks again to the volunteer crew who, I know, are beavering away behind the scenes on samples for next year) but a quick look at some old stuff. I needed to supply images to accompany teaching contracts as well as purple prose to describe some classes – Cording & Quilting, Tentmaker Applique for the Open European Quilt Championships next May, and Essentials of Hand Quilting in various UK locations.
So, it’s rather light on text this time around but lots of positive plans taking shape – watch this space! Happy stitching …
