I put this quilt together. It's 29 x 90 cms, or about 11 x 35 inches in old money. It needs blocking again to straighten it and I think I'm going to put a bit of stitch in the border too.

I printed up some paper the other week with some shell stamps I carved from erasers.
I've now used some of the paper in shell books. This first one is Pectin Scallop Shells. 5.5cm or 2 inches across.
This is a very delicate and translucent pair of Saddle Shells. 10cm or 4 inches across.
Just right for writing seaside thoughts into.
I went into Salisbury in the week to sort out some contact lenses, has to be easier to walk the dogs in the wet than in glasses!! It was really quite cold even in the city, - 4 when I left home out in the sticks, and I was really shocked at how many shops had thier doors open and these heat curtains blowing down instead. What exactly is wrong with having the door actually closed keeping the warmth in? Terrible for the environment let alone their bills. Really daft.
I'm off to change a hanging sleeve, have a great weekend!
