Sneaky peek

I AM going to finish this for the Craft 4 Crafters show at Westpoint next week - some pretty extreme FMQ but I am loving it!

Happy New Year!

Well my 2012 has started with a vengeance! My workshop schedule is well underway, I had great fun teaching my first class at Midsomer Quilting last weekend although I got told off by Chris for helping myself too liberally to the coffee pot! Seriously though, it is a wonderful, friendly place to teach and I am looking forward to my second workshop there on April 28th - I hope Chris remembers to buy in extra coffee!

Midsomer Quilting's third quilt exhibition at the Radstock Museum is being hung as we speak and will open on 1st February. I delivered my contributions last Saturday (four of my quilts have been selected for inclusion) and was honoured to learn that the little quilt I made for MQs recent Fruit Challenge in aid of CLIC Sergent was among the 15 voted for by visitors so will hang in the Radstock. Thank you to all who voted for mine! I think I'm now allowed to say it was the undersea scene - 'Fruits de Mer'.

I have also been asked to have a stand at the forthcoming Craft 4 Crafters exhibiton at the Westpoint Arena in Exeter, which I am delighted to do. This will run from the 2nd to the 4th February, for more details see their website The organisers tell me that patchwork and quilting is fast becoming one of their most popular sections so I am looking forward to being there and flying the flag so to speak! I will of course have quilts on display and will be doing some demonstrations throughout the three days. I have committed to finishing a new quilt that I have been working on especially for the show so once I've posted this, it's back to slaving over a hot sewing machine!

New Year's Resolution? To be more disciplined about posting to my blog! Take care, all, k3n x
