Yahoo, school holidays have begun and with that comes an empty staffroom and the perfect quilting table for me to use. Every holiday I take over the staffroom and baste my quilts. I did my niece's quilt today. It is so much easier to sit on the tabletop than sit on the floor.
The backing is a Kaffe Fassett Liberty fabric. It feels beautiful.
I'm just an ordinary working Mum who likes to do things. I am not really good at relaxing quietly so I tend to be making things all the time. I love the feel and colour of textiles and have tried my hand at tapestry weaving, knitting, stumpwork, embroidery - wool, ribbon and silk, lace making, mosaics, hardanger, crewel, and quilting. The quilting has only come about in the last few years as it is much kinder to my hands and I can work on it for longer periods than the embroidering.
