Did I say talk to you soon?!
The beginning of a new school term got in the way and I had a bit to prepare my classes. I am now teaching three classes, girls and boys from age six to thirteen and feeling quite happy being given this great opportunity.
Now that those classes are underway, I can think of all the rest, even quilts.
I started going through the photos I took at this year's quilt show and chose to share some detail shots with you first. I assumes you have seen most of the quilts by now somewhere else, fortunately you don't have to rely on me, but maybe you can discover a few new things here and there.
This year was my 7th year at the show and I must say, I wish I was a child again, quilt-show-wise. Once more feeling that overwhelming excitement when entering the hall. Feeling stunned by amazing craftsmanship, smiling at quilts because they make me happy...
I went twice and of course, I did see many fantastic quilts. Even a lot of quilts I would have liked to take home with me. Quilts that inspired me. But overall I had a feeling of being saturated and wished for less embroidery, glitter, less sequins and beads and less ambition. Why not make more simple quilts?
Maybe seven years ago those overladen quilts seemed flamboyant to me, while today they often simply looked cluttered. Can't I appreciate a gorgeous quilt anymore because all the talks about decluttering your life?!
Here are my first pictures from the show, I will add more over the next days and weeks.
I liked this photo - I am curious what you see.
