Christmas table runner

I took a break from lavender fish production

to sew a Christmas table runner,

using a moda charm pack.

these little wonky trees are addictive, there could be many more to come!

the great big stitched post card swap - by Do What you Love

I recently took part in "the great big stitched post card swap" organized by Do What You Love.
I took tiny scraps of liberty fabric, cut out little hears, and stitched them into a bouquet, tied with a ribbon, which ended with the word CELEBRATE, the theme of the swap.
I had a lot of fun creating my first ever stitched postcard, and received a beautiful card in return.

shoals of fish

The house is filling up with shoals of lavender fish as I continue to prepare for the Arts Festival at Alnmouth.

I shall be in the Dandelion Cafe again this year, it's such a lovely venue.

I'll be bringing these cute puffins along, I hope they behave.

There will also be a flottila of sail boats, I am resisting the urge to sing " I saw three ships go sailing by"...................

red wallflower quilt

I made this quilt for a friend recently.

The pattern of the red rectangles and the white squares always reminds me of a brick wall.

I quilted it with a meadow of free motion flowers

and leaf designs.

There are thistles, poppies, daisies, cornflowers and grasses.

Flowers on a wall --- wallflowers!
