CQJP February block

Here's my February block - plus addition - the frame for my royal lady. I'm really wondering where this all will lead to :-))

In the meantime I'm stitching biscornues and balls. A friend of mine way back from school days offered to organize an exhibition for my quilts in summer. Three days! Ask me, I'm so exited! It's just one room, but I think I can fill it with my "works". Since she suggested it would be nice to have something to sell, too, I thought of making small items as I can't let go of my quilts (they are part of my life and my artist devellopement). Maybe some felted bracelets will be a good addition. So I'm busy, busy, busy......

Don't the first ones look good?


  1. looking forward to seeing what you are going to create for your exhibition sales table. You mention felted things, would this be on an embellishing machine of hand made I wonder. I had my machine out today but although I can produce fabric of a sort working out what to do with it is a different matter!

    1. Thank you, Margaret. I will hand felt them and then add hand-stitched embroidery like I did with the first one I made http://brighidgettingolder.blogspot.de/2012/10/another-look.html

  2. What fun! Your own show, that is an achievement. I understand you don't want to part with your quilts, so making smaller things to sell is a good idea- pin cushions, brooches, bracelets... Stay busy and have fun!
