Hello world!

Well,  I’ve been thinking about doing this for a while now so I’ve finally bitten the bullet, so as to speak, and here I am!

I’ll be posting about my experiments, pieces I make for swaps with forum groups, and probably about my family as well. I’m not too technologically-minded, though, so forgive me for lapses, in particular getting pictures uploaded!

The above is a small wallhanging I made last weekend at a day class with one of the groups I belong too, Pieceful Patchers. Every so often, we hire a hall and one of the members leads a class, or you can use the time to catch up on your own projects. I’ve only been a member since last year but it’s been fun to escape for the odd day and do something different. I chose black and white for this piece as I couldn’t find my Christmas fabrics…the requirements list suggested 36 different fabrics and I was horrified to find I had almost 40 different b+w fat quarters! I didn’t use them all but I’m very happy with the results. It was pin – basted  and I’d started quilting at the class then I finished it that night. I think my son may end up with it for his room at uni next year, if he does well enough in the summer’s A2 – levels! 🙂

About sheppeylass

Mum of 4, I live on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent. I've always sewn but the quilting bug snagged me a couple of years ago and now, with the encouragement of my artist husband, I'm spreading my wings into textile art.

    Welcome to WordPress Fiona. Much better host than Blogger. By the way, if you can get your email subscription tool on the side bar it makes it easier for those who would like to follow you.

    WOOHOO Great stuff, I look forward to reading about your adventures. I am seriously thinking of swapping to WordPress, Blogger is driving me nuts. Must have a word with Maggi about it.
