Plant texture and Busy Weekend


I've dashed in here with a very quick post as I am going to be very busy over the weekend.  In fact, I should be in bed now or I'll be useless tomorrow.  So, what is happening?  Tomorrow is our Regional Day with the Quilters Guild and this time it is being held in north Lincolnshire.  I'm really excited to be going as the speaker is Sheena Norquay whose work I have admired for a long time and on Sunday I get to do a workshop with her!  I am beside myself!  My DH thinks I'm moving house because of all the stuff I'm taking ;)

Fortunately my brother lives about halfway between here and where the Regional Day is being held so I won't have to come all the way home tomorrow afternoon and I get to spend the evening with my brother and his wife.  Beats driving home when you're tired and even better it means I don't have to have such an early start on Sunday. 

I still have loads of St Ives pics to show you but for now have made a quick collage of some plant shapes that caught my eye.  The dried wreathy, shelly thing at the middle bottom was on the wall in our cottage.

Lastly, tomorrow it's the birthday of someone very special so Happy Birthday to my very special step-daughter from her wicked stepmum ;) Xxx 

(She's going to kill me for that photograph LOL)

Julie, I have changed my blog address. It is cameronsthreads in the address instead of cameronscreations. The other name was used too much and caused confusion.
Love your photos. Maybe you can teach me a few tricks. I still can't get layering. Hugs
