Last days in the US
I didn't have a chance to post my travels around New England before heading to England so I'll try and catch up today...
While visiting my sister I went to Keepsake Quilting...a bit of a pilgrimage really. Though I tried to limit myself I did buy some fabric. OK, lots of fabric. Enough fabric that I had to buy a box and mail it to myself. So much for self control.
Most of what I bought was reproduction fabric. Since I haven't seen much of it here I think I did the right thing in buying them then. So far I have only washed and ironed them but they will have a home in a project soon...even if it is only clipping a hexegon for my English Paperpiecing!
I also went to a great antique show in New London. I bought two packages of antique/vintage fabrics that are wonderful.
I have no idea of what I will do with them all except manybe just enjoy them!
I have started sketching out an applique quilt about the Cotswolds...lots of roses, rasberries, apples and stone walls! That is unfortunately the only creative things I've done. Between looking for a place to live, learning to drive, and taking care of the animals I've been tied up. I have started sketching a bit so I am at least trying to keep my "artsy" side alive.
