Working on the Bayeux

I’ve been working on the Bayeux so I’ve had very litte time for anything else in the past few days.However, I did go for a long walk with Granddaughter Tilly this morning… I will be giving a presentation to the Australian Quilt Study Group at their Seminar, ‘Sharing our Legacy’ in Brisbane on the 18th November and the part of the Bayeux will have it’s unveiling.

It’s still not finished… probably never will be… Now the beginning of this quilt has an interesting story. I began it when I was at an AFS (American Field Service) conference in Sydney. A few days after I arrived I started to cough, and I coughed and coughed and coughed… it was really embarrassing.Friend Sue and I were staying in a "luxurious’ hotel on the outskirts of Kings Cross and just down from Oxford Street.Both areas are a a little upon the shady side you could say.
