Festival of Quilts

It was fab. I wish I could have stayed longer. I'm tired and skint so you'll have to make do with some photos:

































































































I loved it and it made me want to do the HND in Textiles at the local uni but no time dears, no time :(

Right, I'm off to try to sort out the mess that is a dodgy knitting machine and a seemingly equally dodgy seller. She's claiming that the machine has got damaged in the post and that as such it's nothing to do with her. I've never known anything go rusty in the post! Hey ho - I've never left anyone negative feedback in nearly a hundred transactions but I think I'm going to have to with this one.

There certainly is anita - at Camborne Tech (or whatever it is now) There's a retropsective show of students work in St Ives if you get a spare minute to pop down.

I have so many ideas buzzing roun my tiny brain that I know I'll never be able to even begin to put them into action. I'd love to have enough energy/time/money to do the HND - 2 years of doing nothing but play with ideas would be so good.
