Life thus far......

Hi All
I am still not in my job as yet until 1st May so that is still ongoing but hopefully I'll be able to get on with it soon and I have been making preparation for the change in venue etc.

I had to make something very quickly last night as I found out it was a colleagues birthday today...plenty of notice NOT! So I had to pull something out of the bag fast and made 3 simple bookmarks for her. She said she'd never seen fabric bookmarks and loves them and is going to use them for her Bibles which is nice.
Here they are -

I called them "Serengeti", "A Hint of Monet", and "Safari"and they were well received, thank goodness, and I did buy her a present too as well.

V&A Museum trip

Hi All
I went to visit the V&A exhibition of 1700-2010 Quilts in London on Tuesday. I really enjoyed it and loved a lot of the quilts on show. The stories were so interesting but my favourite has to be the RAJAH quilt and the history behind it, closely followed by the quilts made by men, soldiers in hospital and prisoners. It's amazing how so many people have used and use quilting as a form of therapy and to see how much they get from it and their finished quilts was quite moving. The fabrics and colours were fantastic and the trip to the gift shop was another high when I chose my gorgeous fabrics....and here they are -

I love the blue colourways of the designs and opted for ½ metre pieces so that's another future project......and in the meantime they can join my projects-in-waiting of 2 x Jelly Rolls and my Charm pack and Fat Quarter packs x 3.

Here's what I've been working on this Easter weekend

Hi All
This Easter weekend I've made a set of Storage bags from the Feb 2010 issue of PP magazine. I made these as a gift for a friend who loved the fabrics and I've varied the sizes so they can stack away easily into the larger bag.

Hope she likes them when she gets them tomorrow. If not I'll have them myself hahaha!
And a little one for me............

So far so good

Hi All

Today I was offered my Senior Post at the other branch of the college which is quite isolated where public transport is concerned however, the college are looking at a minibus to keep staff safe who work there, so all good so far....

Just the formalities to finalise then we can get on with our jobs again......and breathe too of course! Most of my colleagues that I spoke to got their jobs too thank goodness but staff at work are still going through the process and others are waiting to follow.....not a year we will want to repeat at all, or that we will forget!
