A Quilt About A Blog

On waking, I rarely remember my dreams but I do day dream a lot – mostly about the things I’m going to make if I ever have time – so I evolved this quilt around the byline of my blog: Dream in Colour, Create in Fabric, Thread, Yarn, Words, Whatever you have to hand…

The best time to plant a tree

Back in January, did you have a word for 2019? I actually chose a word but I didn’t ever blog about it. That was partly because we had lots of relations visiting and I didn’t get around to it but it was also because I kept coming upon the idea that that public goal setting […]

Work In Progress…

  How has your October been? I have made some progress on my Summer Stitching but not so much as I intended to and not enough to link up with the OMG Finish linky party. I had aimed to get the pages sewn up ready to be assembled into a book and I have done […]

The loose leaf version…

When the swallows came and I was banished away from my Makery into the garden to weed and weed and weed and suchlike, I became possessed of the idea that I should like to make a fabric book and, throughout those months of heatwave and gardening and painting, I preserved my sanity with pondering its […]
