Textile and thread galore

I spent the weekend immersed in stitchery things. First on Saturday learning how to do reverse applique … lots of different fabric layers and very careful scissoring needed. I was with friends from Mole Valley Quilters and we all almost finished a small piece of work, each one of them different with some amazing colour effects.

Then on Sunday, to the Knitting and Stitching Show –thread and yarn heaven with inspiring displays of textile art. This year there was a trend for kiln fired buttons and yarn from very special sheep … so much to see and lots of choice.

So now I have one other small piece of work to finish, much more of an idea about what to do for the Members Challenge for our local 2014 Quilting Exhibition and some reading on ways to combine textiles and text.

Back to poetry this evening, the second chat of the Walk the Line course and I am preparing to be told, once again, that I’m hopeless at counting syllables.
