Several things

We went to Yorkshire at the beginning of the week. And then I have been down with a bad throat. Still, here are a few items of interest for you.

My Sister-in-law wearing a scarf I made her.
One of the lovely bits of fabric someone brought to an Offcuts meeting. It was a piece from the end of a bolt, so needed a bit of thought on how to do away with some of the faults. I had to cut about 1 inch from one side and 3 inches from the other side. So, I sewed it like a tube along the faults and then trimmed the seam and turned it right side out.

This was a big birthday, so we went for a meal.
I caught them reading menus or discussing their latest phones! The siblings at the end and my mother-in-law in the red. She was really brave! First time she has come out for a meal with us after moving to the home. She will be 95 in September.

Today I went to collect The Heat and the Flame from Lady Sew and Sew in Henley. It was there for the Henley Art Trail. I had forgotten my camera when I set it up. So, I grabbed some quick ones. The Thoughtful Man had taken the day off to chop back the ivy, but he was willing to do the driving...and carrying Mademoiselle.

And then whilst I was away, there was an email about the 6th European Triennial hosted by the Textile Collection Max Berk in Heidelberg.
Although I am still unable to show the work on my blog, they have actually posted my piece along with other 'big names'! So, you can get a glimpse on the site. Museum webpage. If you scroll down, you can read the text in English.

The list of accepted artists is on the pdf which opens when you click the first long link. Or direct to the pdf. Several SAQA members and some who are CQ members.

Love the scarf! That's a great color combo that she's wearing, too.

Thanks everyone!
And thanks Momid5. Not sure who you are, but you are my new best friend if you are someone who can be proud of me! ;-) I guess we all need someone to tell us that.
