Sewing is Never A Bind

It has been a while since I blogged about anything crafty and I have been busy sewing as the Knitting and Stitching Shows are fast approaching. Yesterday I was at a meeting of the Ten Plus Textiles Group and we were selecting the work that each member of the group is going to exhibit there. It is going to be a beautiful and colourful display! We had a very busy day, but it was helped along by gorgeous cakes that Diana had baked.

This morning I have been busy binding one of my pieces, trying to get everything finished in time.

A sneak preview of one of the pieces, inspired by a letter from my Nan, our shared love of cottages and a sprinkling of fairy magic!

I quite like how the quilting looks on the back of these pieces too!

If any of you get chance to visit our stand at the Shows, I don't think you will be disappointed. I will be stewarding Thursday to Saturday at Dublin and over the weekend at Harrogate- I'd love it if you came to say "Hello",:D


  1. These are absolutely stunning! :)
    I wish I was in the area to come and say hello! :) Hope it goes well!

  2. I'm in awe, absolutely jaw droppingly gorgeous! Have a great time at the shows xxx

  3. These are stunning such pretty colours too

  4. They are beautiful! I especially like 'Like a flame'.

  5. Such beautiful work! All the best with the shows. I love the textures of circular stitching and such tantalising sneaky peeks!

  6. Oh my days, even the back is gorgeous!! Whenever I attempt any sewing the back always looks like spaghetti junction! ;)
