Newsletter from June 26th:

Hi Everyone!

This week I’ve mostly been doing a whole lot of editing on my Squidoo lenses. You’ll find oodles of textiley goodness here: http://www.squidoo.com/lensmasters/MeltedRachel

*************************************************

I’ve also started working into my Resolutions wall hanging. I’m planning on giving it a light melting later. I’ve found some fabric to make the lettering across the top of it. I want to work into this piece like I did with the historical women with lots of little bits added on top and embroidered knots.

This is the “reserved” bag I was working on last week. I added some red squares to the piece- I’m not too fond of the yellow squares on the other side so I’ll be changing those soon.

I have an urge to make a patchwork quilt. I haven’t made one before but I have so much fabrics and I thought I might quite like to design a simple black and white piece, seeing as I don’t use a lot of black in my layered textiles. I think I'll have a rummage around in my fabric collection later and pull out some material that will work well.

I also really want to get back to working on my Versailles inspired textiles book. Check out this page to see my inspiration for this: http://www.squidoo.com/versaillespalace. I love the idea of sewing a “knot garden” onto one page spread.

OK, I'd better go and get on with working towards my deadlines! Next week I hope to have a bit more news to tell you.

Take care everyone, and have a good weekend and following week.

Happy Crafting!

Rachel
