Elaine Quehl and Patchwork Sitges 2018

Today's post is actually from a Face Book post written by Elaine Quehl, Canadian quilt artist, teacher, dyer and designer. Elaine was recently in Spain, attending the Sitges Patchwork Festival, where she taught a couple of classes and had a collection of her work on display.

Elaine wrote: Patchwork Sitges 2018 photos are up on a Flickr site. You can see images of the entire Festival here. My work is on page 5 and 8, and my workshops are on page 7 and 8.

You can view over  900 photos HERE.

Elaine has also posted photos of the installation of her work at the festival, and much more so please visit her blog. I took a class from Elaine a few years ago in St. John's, NL. It was a very enjoyable class to take. If you get a chance to take a class from Elaine and to see her work in person, do so!

I hope you enjoy all 910 of the photos.

Flash Back!!

Today I'm posting a few images of work I've done in the past. Since I don't have a studio space yet, I have no where to do any large pieces. Hopefully, plaster and painting will begin next week. I've been told there are fiddly things to be done. My husband is working on it as I write.

Happy St. Patrick's Day Weekend!!

A wee bit of green that my granddaughter, Gale, picked a couple summers ago here in Nova Scotia.
I hope your St. Patrick's Day weekend celebrations are fantastic!

My Brother embroidery machine is still waiting for a new motor. Needless to say, I'm not impressed with the company. This part has been on back order for quite awhile. The Janome embroidery machine is working well but is not as fast as the other one.

Dragonfly Shimmer

Hot off the embroidery machine! Yes, the Janome decided to behave. Actually, it was a needle problem. Anyway, here's the dragonfly shimmer:

I love this one with the silver wings. The next stitch out, will have a different body colour.
