Ladies Work Society Coverlet 1875-1899After a few nights in York we travel to Scotland for a relaxing week staying in a B&B in Edinburgh
Kingsway House http://www.edinburgh-guesthouse.com/
I feel a close affiliation to Edinburgh. The first time I stepped in the main street at dusk. As I looked up to the castle the moon was rising - a lump in the throat and a feeling of belonging – I can’t really explain that. Kingsway House is only one mile from the Royal mile so we will be right in the centre of Edinburgh.Before we leave for a 2 week Russian tour we are going back down to Oxford for a whole week. The highlight will be Kelmscott Manor and to finally visit Morris’ grave, and a visit to see the Oxford quilters as well. Look at some of the delights in the gift shop at Kelmscott!!
Having never taught so far from home my biggest worry has been transporting quilts. I remember way back seeing tutors take just quilt tops – so here is the first one that I will take for a class in Birmingham. http://www.twistedthread.com/
It was very relaxing to be back behind the machine – and here is another new little quilt top as well.
And while I was clearing up some documents on the computer I came across these photos from a design class a couple of years ago from a group north of Adelaide. Those of you who think you can’t draw you can have a go at the design class in Birmingham as I see there are still vacancies. Don't be scared - check this out.....
All these girls said they couldn’t design their own appliqué – sure thing....look at these spectacular results!! You too can do it- if I can anyone can!
