What on earth is she doing now!



Do you really want to know?  Really?  Well I'm not telling.  Except to say it is 15 inches wide  and about 6 ft long and has got to be finished in 2 weeks.  Don't know what the reaction is going to be as it isn't exactly what has been requested.


Do you know what this is?




It weighs an ton - I can hardly lift it - but DH says he can fix it to the wall so it won't fall off and then with either a white sheet or some batting pinned to it we have A DESIGN WALL!


Ok - plug time.  You know we have Flickr, Photobucket, Webshots, Picasa, etc, etc, etc.  Well now we have ( big round of applause and open the champagne) Picfolio, created by Nick Cliffe of the Quilts 4 Leukaemia badge fame.  It is still being tweaked and, as far as I can see, I can't upload photos to the blogs, but it is early days.  Go over a take a look when you have a minute or two.  There are some lovely photos of Nick's little bit of Shropshire.


The weather has decided it is winter - yesterday was cooollllddddd ( brrrrrrrrr ) and foggy.  Today is wet, grey and miz, but not so cold.


I'm off to reclaim my sewing corner and see if I can persuade DH to get out the power drills!  Have a good weekend - don't do anything I wouldn't do :-)

That could be parts of a wintery theme quilt? The design wall looks like a very heavy one! I hope it sticks to the wall! And I’m curious about what you would not do over the weekend. I want to live up to your expectations!

You are going to love your design wall. I use mine ALL and I mean all the time. There is always a project on mine.

Oh, you'll love having a design wall. My DH made mine using 3/4" styrofoam insulation sheets framed with skinny strips of wood (lathe, I believe he called it). I covered it all with white flannel - and I don't know how I would work without it!! Best of luck with yours!!

For what it is worth, my design wall is covered with charcoal grey flannel and I LOVE it.

What a lovely design wall area! Someday I will have one. I loved the photos from the quilt show, just lovely! (and you're right, that labryinth piece is exquisite). Thanks for sharing!

Julie said...

Letters!! Is that what it is??

Nice design area!

That's going to make a great design wall. I've been using a too small vinyl table cloth with rounded corners which doesn't work all that well.

Your Haunted Houses quilt turned out fantastic as did your fantabulous fans. I still need to try those fans.

I love the McDonald's quilt and the cats quilt the best. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Can't wait to see what you are up to now!!

Hmmm...the top one, at 15" wide and 6' long, would seem to be a table runner....or maybe a muffler for a yeti!

The design wall looks awesome -- I'd just be happy to have somewhere to leave my sewing machine put together.

Hmmm - got to be finished in two weeks? A birthday banner perhaps? Something for Alex's school? It's going to be some more of your famous letters by the look of it. Can't wait!!
Bobby x in wet, cold & windy Shropshire. (Perfect stitching weather!)

Neat design wall. I can't live without mine.

Dis donc! "Gorgeous Périgordian nosh in a lovely setting" ?!*... Has Yiddish/New Yorkese hit the Dordogne of late? Or, as we say, "Dress British, think Yiddish!" Just heard back again from my former girlfriend/quilter, now mother of 13 year old twins, who raved about your quilting work.

Bien a toi,
