Willersley Castle Retreat from Gillian Travis

I’ve been organising 5 day retreat/ teaching classes in hotels, conference centres etc for many years. It can be a lot of teaching and can be exhausting but I do love the teaching (hate the admin) and all the fun that goes with having a group of women together who all love textiles

I’ve just returned from teaching in Derbyshire at Willersley castle, where we have met for a number of years. It’s a castle and is set in beautiful grounds.

It’s not too expensive, the food is good, we all have single rooms and although ...

Panel tela Muñeco oso de Navidad from La Vida en Patchwork

Panel Tela Muñeco oso de Navidad

Un rápido oso de Navidad en colores muy navideños verde y rojos, ideal para regalar. Me encanta el típico oso Teddy, lo tendría por todos lados, me parece el muñeco por excelencia.

Me recuerda a la infancia, al osito que acompaña siempre al niño, el que va en las maletas de viaje, y el que vigila cada noche que duerma tranquilo con la seguridad de estar él a su lado para proteger que nada desvele su dulce sueño.

Os dejo una foto de cómo viene el panel tela muñeco oso de Navidad

Nepal from Gillian Travis

I’ve just returned home from Nepal after almost a month of travelling.

I could write pages and pages and load hundreds of images but I like to use my blog to reflect and put daily posts on Facebook and Instagram.

Levison Wood in his book “Walking the Himalayas” talks about his meeting with the Dalai Lama . He says

” If you are unhappy, it’s not because of external factors. It’s nobody else’s fault or problem. It’s not because you are poor and live in a small house, or even because you are ill. It’s because ...

National Park Fabric & Summertime Fun from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

I am a big fan of all the “parks”. At any given time, I have one pass to either our state park, national park, or national forest. They are all so amazing. That is why when I saw these prints, I thought to myself I need to make something with them. You guys check out this line created by Anderson Design Group for Riley Blake Designs called National Park. I just love the posters! However, I think my favorite fabrics are the ones with the patches. The concept is a lot of fun because it includes trail signs, topographic maps ...
