Please come visit me there, thank you.
I have noticed that there have been a few new subscribers to this blog for which I am very grateful. However, this blog is no longer active. All posts have been transferred over to my active blog which is: http://landofdreaming.wordpress.com
I hope to see you over there.
I have moved over all entries on this blog to what was my textile blog : http://landofdreaming.wordpress.com.
I decided it was time to present as a whole rather than compartmentalise
as I have been doing.
I want simplicity
one blog makes sense
in that case.
For all those who start their New Year on the 1st January 2010,
and those who started theirs on the Celtic calendar
I wish you all the very best
in every aspect of your life.
I shall be closing this blog completely in a few days time
so please bookmark the new one

I really must keep up with posting here. I am trying to work out a way to combine my blogs – I feel I am compartmentalising rather than presenting a whole, something I am familiar with in terms of my thinking. However, I am finding it much more difficult than I imagined.
In the meantime, here are the quilties :
May theme was free – I decided to use some multi-dyed cotton cut into strips, woven together again into two pieces, the one placed diagonally onto the other …then the stitching – my favourite part.
June theme: Birds, Butterflies and/or Bees. I chose birds – this one may look very familiar if you followed the sketchbook entry – i took it directly from one of the sketches – it works for me!
My contribution to a book made for a friend who was not at all well – many friends made pages and the book was an absolute beauty, the recipient was more than happy with the surprise .
The quote I used on the back is one I love and one which said what I wanted to express:
“Each friend represents a world in us,
a world possibly not born until they arrive,
and it is only by this meeting
that a new world is born”
This fabulous carton arrived this morning from Jan Bartlett. Both the carton and the contents are just fabulous and beautifully crafted. They included an exquisitely made accordion journal (hard-backed), a handmade charm and so much more. Thank you very much Jan.
This has been a wonderful experience of exchanging art with others – a very different idea to the usual trades. Many thanks to the artists involved and to Susan for creating and initiating this project.
I am moving my art blog over to WordPress – I prefer the format there as I can accommodate the different media on separate pages whilst staying within the same blog.
The new blog address is:
Hope to see you there :o).
This is my interpretation of this month’s quiltie theme on Unlimited Textiles – Nature. I took a rubbing of some bark with a crayon on white cotton which I then coloured with blue/green inks – the scan is not showing the colours too clearly. I then hand-stitched a small amount, not wishing to detract from the natural pattern of the bark.
