The stages of my Bayeux.

I’ve managed to catch up with many of my other projects, now I can concentrate on the Bayeux. I try to put in six or seven hours a day of work, but I’m not doing the 4.00 am starts because it’s winter. I prefer doing that in summer. The days are so short and the…

My blog has been resting.

Thirteen weeks down and counting.Thirteen weeks home and in complete isolation for 3/4 of that time.Yes, everyone else is in the same situation, and life has changed immeasurably for us all. In the future, dates will be measured by “During the time of the pandemic.”You try to be upbeat, but sometimes even that state of…

A Bayeux Journey Story

A Bayeux story. When Jamie and I decided to film part of the documentary of my journey with the Bayeux Tapestry, Carolyn, one of my friends from Australia, joined us in Paris. We drove to Bayeux in our hired Mercedes. Poor Caroline, Jamie took advantage of being in Europe and drove a lot faster than…

No 3 in the steps to the Bayeux, Tapestry to Quilt.

Every week I will add more to this journey. I’ve done it in this format to add to Social Media for my students. In 1068 a group of artisans completed one of the most intriguing pieces of art in history. The Bayeux Tapestry. Carola Hicks states “The Bayeux Tapestry provides a far-from impartial account of a…

How do you design Foundation pieced quilt?

Aurifil Artisan I guess first of all I need a topic, and I chose Eddie the Crow who resides on our Balcony. He’s part of the family, and with his partner, he’s been with us for around five years.He talks to me and gets as excited as a puppy when I return home from a…

Back to Houston.

In these difficult times I thought I would present you with more images of the International Quilt Festival Houston. I didn’t have time to add them all while I was there, so now we have more time to enjoy the beauty. It also means that I can review them all again. I like to take…

I'm doing it.

I’m not going to even comment much on what’s happening in the world right now. I can’t do a darn thing about it.I want to look forward to the next few months and make each day a calm realisation.I miss travel; I miss my students, I miss the smell of the Ocean at Asilomar and…

Life, leisure and luxurious working environments.

It’s some time since I wrote a blog – a few weeks in fact. Now our lives have changed dramatically with the devastation of this terrible virus. I’m so pleased that I’m home. However, I was within 12 hours of flying and I could have been caught in India. That would have been OK with…

A little more of the Quilts from the Houston Quilt Festival.

I flew directly to India after Houston and I still had a lot of images to share but I just rolled into the image of India. So here they are, I’m not sure what category these were in. I think it was colour. Nevertheless, they are gorgeous.

Look out of the window and create a quilt.

This is what it looks like as you fly over Australia. Sometimes I can capture images, sometimes not. This time I flew to right through the centre of Australia from South the North and I captured this image. Come home and make the quilt. Finished.
