Quiet week

Have had a quiet week this week. So no pics, but I have managed a little hand stitching on my Turkish Delight.  I have also been watching lots of the videos on well worth a visit for us quilters.

The Passion of Port Talbot

Here is a pic I took today in Aberavon Shopping centre, where Michael Sheen came to share memories with us re last years Passion in Port Talbot (there is also an exhibition on at the moment).  The picture shows the two 'quilt tops' made by local school children that our group helped put together for the passion. I am quite excited to be going to the premier of the film of it 'The Gospel of Us' tonight.

Pray Flags

Ok, here are my set of P.F.'s what next, any suggestions? Oh, and expect her to hang them either in her garden or her greenhouse. The colours haven't come out too well. Looking from the left they are blue, white, red, green and yellow.

Prayer Flags

I am making a set of Prayer Flags for a friend (yes I have friends) and I am really stumped as to what to put on them. I have cut them out as bunting shapes thinking that would give them a British feel - and as we are celebrating so much in Britain this year it would be appropriate.  Now my friend loves her garden, so maybe flowers and or birds, she practices yoga and reiki. So where do I start?

Right way up

Just hoping this pic is the right way up now.
Yippy it's the right way up.

Almost finished

My Turkish Delight is almost finished now. The trick is knowing when to stop.
