Fabric, fabric and even more fabric

With only just over two weeks to go before the Spring Quilt Show in Exeter I am drowning in fabric. We have been dyeing fabric every day now for the past month! I'm just hoping that I'll be able to get it all into the car! Graeme has become a very accomplished dyer in a short space of time which is just as well as I don't think I could have done all this on my own! I don't have any pictures at the moment but some of the pieces are to dye for! Compared to the dyeing of fabric, dyeing threads is a real pain. There is so much rinsing to be done and one is dealing with fiddly amounts as well. However the finished products are worth all the time and effort involved.

I am setting my website up so that we can take credit cards and hopefully I have today found a web designer who will be able to help me do this. To date we have used Pay Pal which is very good but isn't suitable for a hand held terminal which we will need at the show. So fingers crossed the website will become better and better!

And as if all that isn't enough tonight I am going to make 15 picture cushions! I feel tired already! lol


  1. Wonder how many of the 15 are done? All, I hope, for your sake ;~)

  2. Nearly all done Diana! But still got lots of stuff to do! How is life with you? Val

  3. 2 to go, I see ;~) So glad to see you bubbling over. When is the big day, in April?
