More silky things

How to free-motion on a tiny scale, and some of the resulting brooches (All £10, and for sale..)
(ETA cream one has gone, but I can make more...)

Week of Silk

As those of you who read this blog will know, I tend to have occasional "weeks of" and this week I am concentrating on silk in all it's shimmery glory. Unusually, I have invited people to join me, but this has been of mixed utility.. Today was pretty good, however
So, so far, I have made some purses
of which this is a small selection
And some truly tiny blocks

..some of which I have made into a little quilt (approximately 8 inches square) - the blocks are 3 inches before joining and are foundation-pieced on calico

and a degree of mess, of course

Also some book covers, not yet finished, and sundry oddments

And come to a realisation that I may not live long enough to use all this silk at this rate of titchiness

This morning in Beccles...

Local Herrings

And ingenious repairs...
Not captured, but the other side of the bumper was held on with half a seatbelt...

and Squids
