a romance with summer

a cheery hello to my bloggy friends and followers
and anyone who has accidentally stumbled across
my little bit of space on the web :o)

just wanted to say I will be posting here soon
but meanwhile have been posting here:

printing and playing with geospun textiles

Festival of Quilts 2011

a few photos

since I got back from Festival of Quilts it's been hectic the past week working for my hubby and working on my own things, custom orders for beads and hearts, keeping the house looking nice, a Crow Day working on The Brooklyn Sketchbook Project, a day out with a friend, drama in St. Ives and the purchase of a new sewing machine (you wait till you see it!), also had my quilt back which I want to work on a little more and I'm making a curtain too ... in readiness for chillier autumn/winter evening (it's for the cottage door) ...

... so quite a bit going on

I also have some autumn harbinger photos to share
from a lovely walk recently

this weekend I'm painting more beads
and stitching new hearts which I love to do
also sorting out my photos for the post that I've been
carrying around in my head for the past week

meanwhile ... this is the mosaic I made for TILT

♥ a romance with summer ♥
Things I love Thursday

clinging to summer, dreamy days at the beach, hearts and berries, red and pink, a romantic trip to Paris, love and passion, soft light and quiet moments ...

Lovely, lovely mosaic! I'm trying to cling on to summer but have to change my sodden clothes first as we all got drenched down town this morning!
