April EQ6 Project File

April Joy

The weather has been lovely this past couple of weeks and with no teaching commitments I have been busy enjoying doing things I never seen to have time to do when I am teaching.

The garden is looking good and almost all of the plants we bought have been planted out. The veggies are coming along nicely and it's fun tending to them.

I am playing with new half square rectangle designs and this is one of them. If you have EQ6 you can download it HERE.

We had our first BBQ the other day and it looks as though we will be able to eat out in the garden again today - I love cooking outside.

At the end of last week Norman and I emptied my wet studio (the log cabin) and gave it a good Spring clean. He said it was like the Tardis as he couldn't believe just how much stuff I managed to store in there. It's looking good and more importantly spider free! I didn't use it much over the winter so a couple of spiders had set up home in there, I am such a coward when it comes to spiders.

I have signed up for this round of Art2mail postcards, just over 20 which is more manageable than the 40+ from previous years, so I hope to get back into the studio and start playing again with some new ideas that have been formulating in my mind. A bit more art quilt related rather than the more traditional work that I have been busy with this past few months. It's lvoely to be able to to both and I enjoy them equally.

I will post some pictures when I get started on my postcards.

My Quilt Judging Certificate arrived a week or two ago - I didn't manage to get to Wales to receive it in person from the Quilters Guild of the British Isles as I had to add an extra week onto my classes because I missed a couple of days because of the snow earlier in the year. I have been asked to judge two quilt shows this year which is very exciting.

I am off to do some more gardening, the weather is gorgeous here today.

Thank you for dropping by.
