At the last minute i decided to take a stand at my local Brighton stitches show, for those who know me well I have major panic attacks before any event with overwhelming feelings of self doubt etc. but in good old local fashion the ladies out there made it an overwhelming sucess for me. I was fortunate enough to have a copy of the new book and this seemed to go down well.
I am lucky to have had lots of helpers and this is Cathy, She will be with me in Birmingham in March. The show had very little in the way for us patchworkers, but i fear this is a sign of the times, it is very expensive to stage a show let alone the distruption it causes to ones life. The stands may have been a little under the weather but i do love the displays. I apologise for the gremlins in my new camera but theses textiles made my heart sing.
Sorry about the photo i know its really bad but this competion was so great it had a 60s theme and i only wish i knew about it in time to make something for it, there were lots of campers and The Beatles, just up our street. Any way just these pieces have inspired me to be very creative, so watch this space.
