Move Along Now

Well I wish it wouldn't quite so fast.  Like so many out there wondering what happened to January I'm seriously beginning to think there is some world wide speeding up of time.  Is that possible do you think??

I have been plodding along with my EG course, or trying to if there weren't so many problems communicating with my tutor.  It's so frustrating.  I just want to crack on and it takes days to have a response.  So much for modern technology.

Anyway whilst waiting I have been trying to collect quotes I like and started looking for a suitable book to keep them in.  Then, in one of those stupid moments, I remember that I actually make books.  Duh!  So I did.

Just a bit of tweed and some off cuts of bits I've made.

And some buttons and bits.

And I gathered a load of mixed papers that needed using up, some hand made, sugar, printed and plain to make the pages a little more exciting.

I just have to start filling it now.

I have also been working on this quilt.  This is just a part of it as it's quite labour intensive but I'm getting there! A long way to go yet.

I've knitted yet another cardie for Olivia, this time for wearing now rather than later.

I have also begun working on a few of these.  And I mean a few.  I have been collecting the frames for a long time and have 40 or so but I thought they would make interesting items for the Art Weeks using some old quilt pieces I have.

I had another bad night on Sunday where my body really rejected the food I had had and most of Monday was spent trying to convince my hernia not to retaliate.  That's the second time in as many weeks.  I did manage to do a fair amount of knitting on yet another cardie though!!

And today we finally had some snow which the rest of the country has been on about for weeks! Not sure if thats a good thing or not but the dogs are enjoying it.

I hope you have a good week!


  1. What a pretty little book. Hope your tummy sorts itself out!

  2. Love the book. How frustrating to have delayed communication with your tutor, I hope that it improves over time. Fantastic movement in that quilt - it's not pieced is it?? The bags are going to look good. I do hope that you are feeling better by now.

  3. All Lovely stuff, but the quilt is stunning! Dyed fabric?
