Hi all
It is fabulous to see all your work. Unfortunately I am still not able to get comments of any sort to post on each of your quilts. I have tried everything I can think of, but no success. BUT I can write a new post! So here we go.........

Dianne: A really beautiful and gentle piece, and I like that you used your own image to interpret in her style.

Helena: I love all that rich colour and texture you have created.

Rosemary: Brilliant! I like them both, but I think I prefer the squares too - the stamp made some great marks.

Patricia: I agree Patricia - it was difficult to decide which of her pieces to use - and I did like this one too!I love your interpretation.

Phil: Eish indeed! Gosh - your piece makes me feel so homesick - that was my view every day when I lived in Blouberg and I miss it so. Thanks for the lovely reminder. Why didn't I think of that??

Jinnie: What a great find. All those layers have made a great 'sea'. Glad you put the closeup on the blog for us to enjoy.

Linda: I like how you took the very essence of her lines then used that to create something else. Isn't that what this is all about? I also like your question - I dwell on that a lot. Love the way you were able to develop your idea for another project too.

Allison: I love your interpretation and use of different textiles to achieve the look you were after.

Hilary: I love your interpretation of the same image I chose - how cool that our pieces are SO different! All that dense free motion stitch on the rock surface is perfect. Love it.

Thanks for all the lovely comments on 'Old Man'. He is a drawing of a homeless man named Paul that I used to see every day. I don't know how old he really was (he didn't know himself!) but he used to tell me he was just an 'old man'. I loved making him and yes, I am pleased. :-)))

So Uta........... who will it be???? 

Best wishes to everyone



  1. I'm so sorry, Claire. I have checked your status and you are registered as 'Admin' the same as everyone else and the comments are set to 'anyone' (but moderated) wishing to comment. I can't think of what it could be unless it is something to do with iPhones/iPads like Dianne suggested. H

  2. No worries - I checked too and everything seems fine, so it must be something to do with the settings on my computer. Not to worry, new posts and replies work so as long as you don't mind me doing it that way I can still have a voice!

  3. On more than one occasion I have omitted to press the publish button and then find I need to go back and redo !! This is probably just me ( a real computer illiterate) but as I get to know computing a bit better I find there is often a simple explanation .Thank goodness we have Hilary to guide us along !

  4. Trying from my phone.... Let's see if it works ๐Ÿ˜

    1. Claire, I found these two in the 'waiting moderation' box. Who would have thought?! I will have to work out why your postings/comments are being filed for moderation - the only other ones are spam and trash. H
