July 22 2009 Quilting Newsletter


Hello one and all, itís Wednesday and that means a quick hello to you all. Itís the middle of the year and already Iím hearing fellow quilters talk about Christmas presents. I guess if youíre going to be organised, now is the time to start, but well, Iím just not THAT organised!!

Iím busy creating my daughters birthday present for August. Iím making a tablecloth, apron and some tea towels at her request. She likes blue, so Iíll be teaming it up with brown, mustards and rusts.

I have been doing a ďspring cleanĒ of sorts, and have a few bags to go to the opportunity shop. I donít mind making a special trip Ė itís worth it for those who might be in more need of my items than me. Itís been very, very cold at night here, so my blankets will probably be coming in handy to someone.

I spent a busy day yesterday, taking some fellow embroiderers through the first steps of Hardanger. Iím self taught but have been doing it for a very long time and enjoy the craft immensely. Hardanger is very hard to get the hang of at first, but once your brain is in the ďzoneĒ itís a breeze and very enjoyable.

I find doing stitcheries for my quilts the same. I guess itís the continual stitch in-stitch out- rhythm that makes it so comforting and enjoyable. Iíve got a few quilt patterns that incorporate stitcheries, so I must get on and get them finished. I really like all facets of quilting Ė Itís the love of fabric that attracted me so long ago.

I posted a poem onto the home page of the Quilting Bellaonline site last Sunday. A friend of mine Ė Jenny Riley has been writing poetry, prose and all manner of writings for I suspect most of her life. She has a very special way with words and Iíve received permission to post this poem she wrote sometime ago for you. It isnít dated, as the feeling behind it is as fresh today as it was twenty years ago. I do hope you enjoy reading it. Hereís the link:

My gifts for you today are all about humor. I was sent these two sites by my quilting friend Kate, and I just had to pass them onto you. I really hope you enjoy this kind of humor. Both blogs are very good and are written by quilters. Enjoy.

Well, Iíd best get off and go and think about the miracle of tea for tonight. Hope allís well your end. Stay happy and warm everyone.

Cheerio for now
