On the bright side

On the bright side of things it seems that my weeks have 14 days !

It would be very easy to dwell on what we cannot do but I have decided to enjoy the time out to pack as much as I can. Next year, fingers cross, my teachings will resume and the weeks will feel like 5 days again …

On the bright side I can now do a lot of gardening, create new patterns (be ready for those) , finish some UFO’s, even tidying the sewing room.

I do miss sharing my passion with you all through classes or friendship groups but I know it’s only just for a short time. Imagine what we all be showing and telling when we get back together. We might have to have overnight sessions.

“Pêle-Mêle, au revoir”pattern is now ready for you,

” Toujours Provence” pattern will be ready by the end of August

And on the bright side I am about half way on the next reproduction quilt. And it’s going to be one of my favorite. Cannot wait to show it to you.

I am also working on a  BOM in modern fabrics. It will be online only.

And it is about the garden and the weeds, and more.

I have something exciting coming up for the end of the year work related….It’s a bit of a surprise

Well on the bright side of today I have the whole day to play with fabrics and my fingers are hitching to do a bit of sewing. Better listen to it.

Stay safe and mostly sane and keep sewing…

Post scriptum

I bought last year a calendar called “My perfect imperfect life”, and so far all the little sayings each months are quite spot on. July is ” The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain” ( Henry Wadsworth Longfellow).

Pêle-Mêle

Hello all,

It feels like I have hibernating for a long time but in fact the fingers have been quite busy…. After the tremendous success of “Pêle-Mêle” and feeling like more clamshells I designed and nearly completed a second version in modern fabrics with new designs. The release of this new version will be at the Brisbane show in Octobre. And the name ( drumroll ) “Pêle-Mêle …. encore”.

I am now clamshelled out for a bit.

Other exciting news I will be back next year in Nantes at the salon “Pour l’Amour du Fil” with Quiltmania, translating and teaching 2 classes, I am looking forward to it. More details later.

And our bees are doing very well, we are about to put the super ( that’s where they can store honey) on the hive and let them do their magic….

Bonjour à toutes et tous,

J’ai l’impression d’avoir hiberné pendant longtemps mais en fait les doigts étaient fort occupés. Après l’immense succès de “Pêle-Mêle” et le désir d’en faire plus j’ai concocté et bientôt fini une deuxième version utilisant des tissus plus “modernes” et de nouveaux patrons. La sortie officielle de cette nouvelle version est le salon de Brisbane en octobre. Quant au nom ( roulement de tambour) “Pêle-mêle…. encore”.

Je pense avoir fait assez de clamshells pour un moment.

Autre nouvelle très excitante, je serais de retour l’année prochaine à Nantes au salon “Pour l’Amour du Fil” de Quiltmania pour des traductions et donner 2 cours, je me réjouis d’avance. Plus de détails dans un futur proche.

Et nos abeilles se portent très bien, nous sommes prêts à ajouter le super ( c’est là où elles gardent leurs réserves de miel) sur la ruche et après c’est aux abeilles à créer leur magie…..
