Can't wait to see what you are up to. My sewing has been very limited to sewing curtains for my mum - I had forgotten how boring curtain making was!!!!

I'm with you on that one Diane! I've just bought some new curtains because sewing curtains doesn't DO it for ME either!

Two lovely collections. Happy sewing. I agree with both of you on the curtain front.

I agree...your mosaics are always wonderful. And I end up looking at lots of eyecandy from those artists. Carolyn...your side panels are wonderful (and RED for the season =-) )...how do you do that? Is it on Blogger someplace?

Jacky's book is much better to see in the flesh than in the photos. She is coming to our Guild to do a workshop in Frbruary, which I would like to get on. But if all the spaces go, I have put my name down to go to her studio when it is up and running. Wonderful mosiacs again, I do enjoy them, they are always very tasteful
