Havent kept up with my blog

Although I havent posted anything lately I have been working on a few things.  The first has been Rose Lewis' Quilting confidence course.  I began this to create a portfolio of quilt patterns.  It has been a bit different to what I thought originally but it has helped to keep me focused.


The second thing I have been experimenting with is paintstick. These let you make your own fabric by rubbing the paintstick over textures under the fabric.  The paints sticks are simply that paint in a stick form.  The Shiva brand is especially for fabric and after 24 hours can be heat set with an iron and then laundered in the normal way


I am also setting up to do the Sulky registered trainers course and hope to be able to keep up with the onlne requirements for that.  There are 10 projects in the course and I need to complete a minimum of seven to gain certification.  Not sure what I will do with the certification


So while I havent many photos to show for my work I have been creatively busy
