How are you doing with Winifreds book Manda is it helping oe are you ever more confused...sometimes freehand is the only way ;) rxx

Hi Manda Sounds like you need to grab any of the Winifred Aldrich books esp her ones for pattern cutting for children they are pricey but worth every penny & I know the library has a few. If you make blocks for Bella & Lily your sizing troubles will be over...well until they grow over night :)Rx

We had a line fault which resulted in a our loss of internet access for sometime...i was bereft. No on-line chitchat, no reading my blogs or other such wonders it has made me realise how much being on-line plays a part in my everyday life....not sure that's a good thing or not! Anyway onto the bees....what a weekend. It was fantastic and I will be writing a much fuller account here if you fancy a read. I am completely hooked which is not surprising as its been something i've wanted to do for years but never knew where or how... Continue reading

One of the great things about working a few hours at the library each week is that I can get hold of all sorts of fabby books. This week this little pile was waiting for me when I arrived to open up... After a quick flick through all of them last night i was particularly taken with the Sanderson Story & as it contained some of my favourite prints it was easily always going to best, the most interesting. I often wish that I had gotten that light bulb moment when first going to study art at college and making... Continue reading

Oh Jane sad news I do love tulips Keith has been bringing me various varieties back from Holland its so disheartening when something you've worked so hard on & has quite a significance takes a knock but knowing you you'll salvage it & make something better rx
