May walk.

I have just received my first copies of 'Cloth, Paper & Scissors' and 'Quilting Arts', thanks to reading about them on other peoples blogs. I have been diverted by making layered paint backgrounds and thinking how to transfer these to fabric.
I will certainly be subscribing. I recently started getting 'Embroidery' magazine again after a break of a few years. I used to regularly refer to it and looked forward to receiving the next copy, but I don't find it so interesting now, perhaps this is because the articles are often not by practising textile artists.

I have had a few days off work; here are a few photos from a recent walk. It has been very rainy but warm. I found a rusty farm trailer which yielded some photos with potential.


  1. Hello! I just found your blog and LOVE it. Although it is not unusual to find a Patricia Bolton fan (CLS and QA) I was delighted to read about your pleasure in receiving the magazine. I live in New Hampshire and yesterday had the great pleasure of visiting Quilting Arts retail store in Stowe Massachusetts ~~ something I've wanted to do for awhile. WOW is what I say! I've been to the online store but the real thing is fabulous; I don't know of another place like it in the states.

    Do you know of other ways to use silk hankies. When I saw them, I thought about using them to "entrap" threads or other embellishments? But I am not able to find any references about this. Pat

    Hi Jackie! We met in Alton the other day. I said I would look at your blog, so here I am. It is very inspiring - a wonderful record of your work and inspiration.

    I went to Petersfield today and was lucky enough to buy a huge piece of old patchwork in a charity shop - 60s/70s I'd say. An unfinished king size bed cover. Not sure what i am going to do with it, but what a juicy find!

    Keep stitching.

    Best wishes
