Can it really be a year since I was here in this most magical textile heaven, Cowslip workshop Cornwall. I have bought my family with me and am staying in accommodation close by. The venue on a farm surrounded by old farm building , gardens, animals and views to die for and an amazing organic cafe brought tears to my daughters eyes as they did mine when I first came, Jo the owners is just the biggest added bonus ever!
The workshop is divine where i have twelve students beavering away fed and watered with amazing food throughout the day . Even though I am teaching and this is called work its like being on a creative holiday. Today we made wine glass lampshades, robins, shaggy wreaths. My students have been sent home with work and tomorrow we will be decorating our garland with hearts, reindeer -and snowman .
This coming weekend there will be a massive Xmas fair here with wonderful stalls, antiques, textiles and gifts if you are around do come by.
Beginners first quilts finished! It's great to see all the different colour ways . I am frantically writing pattern for Festival of Quilts, it's nice and easy and covers several very useful techniques.
Cowslip Workshops. Another one of my favorites. Settled in the heart of Cornish country farmlands near Launceston. Drop you family off in the cafe and spend hours in the shop and savour the delights of Jo the owner. Work a visit into your holiday plans.
