Quiet counting from Celtic Thistle Stitches

It is time for this quarter's reveal on the Endeavourers Art Quilt blog. The theme for this quarter was " A walk in the park" and needless to say I procrastinated a lot on what to make that would fit the theme. Eventually, I decided to combine two projects into one and make a Quiet Book for the gorgeous grandsons based upon a walk in the park.

We are lucky enough to live next to a park with a boating pond so I based my book on the things that can be found in the park.

I went for a ...

August Journal Quilt from Quilt Routes

Quilt Routes

After a busy busy time I just wanted to sit with some hand stitching, so this is my offering for August's JQ. It was done on a piece of fabric that I had sun printed a long time ago. It was not hugely successful, as the floral prints which were done using Mallow from the garden, came out quite pale.

Of course, once I had finished I found some other sun printed fabric that would have been better to use as ...
