Another week has gone by and I so wish I had more hours in the day – I say that every week.
I want to teach, I want to make quilts, I want to have days off with my family, my friends etc I want to go to fabulous places etc
What have I been doing last week?
My daughter has just bought a flat in London. It needs a lot of work on it so i was a DIY mum last week, my hands are sore from cleaning, painting, sawing down vegetation. My back is sore from sleeping on a thermarest on the floor but it was very satisfying as it is amazing what you can achieve in a week – black painted walls needed 4 coats of white paint to cover it.
I then went on to Sidmouth to check out the place where we will be staying on a residential in November.
This residential is fully booked, and so is the week in Matlock in October but I have spaces on the week in December. if you would like to know more please email me
I will be teaching Interchange Applique and Notan at Matlock in December.
The residential is Monday lunchtime to Friday lunchtime, all single en suite rooms, Dinner bed and breakfast and all teaching, for less than £400. It is not posh but comfortable.
Here are some of the other residential classes I will be teaching in the next year or so
If you haven’t seen the facebook posts about the cruise I am teaching on here is the info
World of quilts travel to Norway at the end of July / August
I am teaching for Crafty Retreats near Limoges in June. This one is full up and has been for some time. I will also be teaching for Crafty Retreats in Cornwall in March of next year – a new residential class based on “Sardines”
Now for another exciting opportunity… You might like to join me!
I have been asked to teach on a Baltic Cruise in the summer of 2018. It includes visits to St Petersburg, Stockholm, Helsinki, Copenhagen. I am really excited about this as these are places I love. All the projects that we will be doing on the cruise will be Scandinavian inspired. I am working on these this week. I’ll be able to share them and show pictures next week.
I really try hard with all the social media that is needed to promote all these weeks / holidays- it takes ages to write blogs, post on facebook/ instagram etc. i really enjoy keeping in touch with all my friends around the world.
After Sidmouth I went along to coast to teach at Paulines Patchwork in Dorchester. I love teaching there.
Lovely people, great facilities and a beautiful area
Here are some photos that I took after the class
Here is a finished piece that Paula bought to show me, from the class i taught there last year – Fabulous and I love it when students bring back finished work
I have, as usual loads of admin to do this week and lots of teaching at Hebden Bridge at the Quilt Cabin

It’s the first of many Guatemalan pieces that I intend to make….more time needed
