Today I hit the road (Jack) and got myself to the Malvern Quilt Show.
I needed it. It's been house/house/house lately and soon will be end of year exams/exams/exams (all three boys... sigh) AND Mr M left for a week long business trip to China today too so that was another thing I had to forget.
Incidentally whilst he's away I'll have to fly solo through THREE cricket matches, one concert, once sleepover and one evening at school. Gulp. I see a lot of pizza nights in my immediate future!!
Anyway, it was lovely to switch off for a few hours and not think.
Of course I have a lot of photos to show you... I took over a 100 but fear not, you shall not exposed to them all at once, it might kill you.
Tonight I'm going to give you a little starter.... I'm going to begin with an art quilt which I found staggeringly incredible.
This is completely machine embroidered. Talk about skillage in the village!!
It's by Juanita Buchan and it's called 'David'. And although I wouldn't exactly call it 'a quilt' (would you sleep under it?)... it's definitively a work of art made with fabric and thread (a lot of thread!)
Isn't it amazing? I love the details on the book. Sweet.
You can see more of her work here.
Well it's Friday night... I have 36 recorded episodes of NCIS to catch up on so... see ya!
