Back into the Chorlotn Arts Festival shop this week, with lots of amazing purchases on offer, including my stitchpics.

It wasn’t my intention to have my reflection included in the photos, but it was surpisingly sunny on Monday morning-for a pleasant change!

Squashed frogs!

15 Jun

Took a trip to Edinburgh over half term to visit the folks. My parents are moving house at the end of the month so I needed to collect the last of my flotsam and jetsam. Amongst some books and childhood nick nacks, I came back with two quilts made during my embroidery degree, one of which I has totally forgotten about; the squashed frog quilt. I made this quilt over 20 years ago, when I was 20 years old! The quilt has lots of computer embroidery of beetles on it, that look a bit like squashed frogs, taken from sketches done at The Manchester Museum. Not having seen the quilt for a number of years I was quite impressed by the quality of stitch and subtlety of design and colour!
