I'm currently doing some planning for a new project (as part of this) working with a group of local women. I'm pleased that they have asked to make a quilt during the twenty weeks that we have to work together. I've been a keen maker of patchwork on and off for years and like to piece by hand in the traditional English manner (with paper backings).
It's a good opportunity to revisit some of my own work which is in dire need of repair. Piecing silk and cotton together was asking for trouble. I recently read a very lovely post about mending on Sherri Lynn Wood's blog.
However, to paraphrase Lucy Lippard, my time comes in very small squares (or hexagons) at the moment so it might be a while before this is fixed.
