Quilt show, workshops etc.

The last fortnight has been rather busy, with several different workshops and the Spring Quilt Festival at Edinburgh.

This sashiko kinchaku bag was made by one of the students at my workshop with Dundee Embroiderers' Guild the previous weekend.

Last week, I had an evening sashiko workshop in Broughty Ferry and some of the quilters brought their finished 'Japanese Circles and Squares' quilts from the group in Monifieth a couple of years ago.

While I was teaching at Scotstoun on Saturday, Glyn got a bit more done on the summerhouse shingles, dodging the rain.  He has started shaping them to fit around the top of the gothic window, using a cardboard template for the curve.

The last but one row is finished on both side walls, but all the remaining shingles on the front and back are having to be shaped individually, so that is going slowly.

Rain on and off yesterday afternoon meant indoor projects later on.  We put together the Ikea kitchen counter for my workroom - this is the new cutting table.

It seems smaller than I remembered it! Having a slightly higher worktop for rotary cutting is going to be so much better.

smaller than you remember is good. no leaving things on it...fold and put them away. So many folks have Ilka items I am thinking I need to take a trip and see what they have.

The summer house is coming along!!!! It has been a lot of work.
