During this week I had a fun day sewing with my friend Rivka. A friend of hers has commissioned me to help sew a quilt and Rivka was going to help, donate the fabric and learn the techniques as we went along. Well we had lots of fun making wonky log cabins with the most ridiculous fabric from Rivka's stash. I never photographed the squares but I did manage to capture the outer borders.
Rivka was so inspired she went home and sewed all the blocks together. I can't wait to see what it looks like.
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.
