This week under my sewing machine

I’m getting ready for 3 consecutive weekends of demonstrating and teaching on the shows in Edinburgh, Harrogate and Duxford, so I have made over hundred quilted panels with a feather, paisley and jellyfish design (just forgot to take a picture). I’m also preparing some new classes for upcoming workshop list …

The first project I have made, just not finished yet is another sample for the Improvisational Stained glass window class I’m preparing for next workshop list. I have taken inspiration from Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his roses. The colour combination was on my mind for a couple of years now – turquoise and red – just works so beautifully together! But I can imagine shades of grey and yellow or bright pink. Or very traditional green and red or pink, oh well the choices are limitless.


The other project which will also be turned into a class is an infinity scarf. It will be joined class with making a poncho (picture of finished one most likely next week). I bought a meter of lovely silk wool mix herringbone fabric. 3/4 of it will be used for the poncho, I just need to find the right fabric for the lining, didn’t find anything suitable in our shop. The remaining 1/4 of a meter can be then used for an infinity scarf. We had this lovely spotty batik in the shop and it was calling me to do something wearable so here we are!


I’m very pleased with my two creations and am really looking forward teaching them soon in the shop.

Thank you for reading



  1. Will you be selling the roses stained glass window as a kit. Would love to make it. It would be my first attempt at this technique. I will come and see you at Duxford
