This one is for those people who like to go home at the end of a day's workshop with a completed piece of work! It is only small - 6" X 6" and very straightforward to do in a day. Quite sweet I think?
We had a week in Cape Verde in January. A real "fly and flop" holiday, and it was great.
I took lots of photos - just on my phone - and have been looking through them. It occurred to me that they would make great postcards, so an idea has been fermenting for a new quilt. This would be a one-off, although I generally seem to work in a series, or at least with an ongoing theme. This will be just for fun. So watch this space..........
Here are a few of the postcards in their raw state - untrimmed etc. I know I am going to stitch them around a map of the region.
The people are delightful and very attractive. We were staying within sight of the jetty where small fishing boats are constantly landing fish - lots of tuna.
Cape Verde is a popular windsurfing area.
I love textiles and especially quilting.
