Time to chill and Diary Dates...

I needed a bit of calm time this afternoon to collect my thoughts and the best treatment for me is to do a little painting onto a free machined piece.

If you've ever done this workshop with us I'm sure you'll agree, it's a very restful technique. We'll turn these pieces into book covers to stock up for our Open Day.

I've mentioned before that Carolyn and I belong to Trelyn Quilters and that they are having an exhibition at Fraddon Village Hall starting this Thursday, in aid of the Phoenix Stroke Appeal.
We'll have our Autumn workshops on display, along with workshop info. Unfortunately Carolyn can't be there, but I will on Thursday, Friday afternoon and Saturday so please come and say hello, I'd love to meet those who read our blog.

The reason I needed to chill today was because I took my Celtic Knot quilt into the cleaners last week. It was far too big to handwash and no way could I dry it, so I thought that was the best option. Best laid plans...when I phoned to ask what time I could collect it on Tuesday (the day it should be ready), I was told it would be Wednesday. So, along with taking No.1 man for his hospital appointment, helping to set up the exhibition and baking for it, it's going to be a late night attaching the hanging sleeve as well. It will all be worth it and I'll make sure to take some photos of the exhibition to show you next time.

Here are our Autumn Dates...
