Last Post for this computer

After using the same computer for seven years, it is now going to be tweaked and prodded to give me some more umph, therefore, I will not be posting until it is returned next month. In the meantime, this is a photo for the unlimited textile members who know me as Guzzisue- this is the original Guzzi pictured somewhere in France last year on the way back from Czech Republic.

NEC Quilt Fest

Visited the International Quilt Festival yesterday at the NEC, had a really great time but spent far too much stocking up with paints etc. Well done to everyone who entered work, hopefully I will be able to enter something next year. ( If I get my sewing head on, sketchbook out, watch fewer DVDs etc, etc, etc)
Currently putting together travel journal kit and generally looking at maps to plan a rough route for our next trip.

Just finished ATC for unlimited textiles group swap, used my current favourite ingredients- handmade felt and hand stitches. (okay, I used the machine to do the edges)

First quiltie

First attempt at a quiltie, this one is for the unlimited textile group swap. Unfortunately the photo deadens the colours especially the gold highlights.

Pilgrims Rally

It's a long time since we have had to put the tent up in the dark, didn't cause to many problems, only tripped over the guy ropes once !!. Anyway,the rally was organised by Mayflower MCC with the usual good food, drink and flat field for camping.

Saturday was spent in Maldon exploring the town, the quay and watching the annual carnival procession. Both evenings were spent catching up with old friends and sampling the beer on offer.

It all went wrong

The photo above should have ended up on my profile but ended up here instead. Anyway this is me with my very first camera, many years ago. Colour added by Corel Photo- the world was in black and white in those days!!!
