New Mugs, New Glass and A Quilt

07 Jun

We have found the perfect place to keep our new mugs, bought from our potter friend in Open Studios week. Isn’t the turquoise colour  just gorgeous?

Last week I was sent some new earrings to use in my glass work and this is the piece that they inspired – purple, white and green, a Suffragette piece! 

I came across this quilt a few days ago and loved it. Just look at the work that has gone into it with words from Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol, a favourite song that we sing with my choirs.

Chasing Cars
We’ll do it all
Everything
On our own
We don’t need
Anything
Or anyone
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
I don’t quite know
How to say
How I feel
Those three words
Are said too much
They’re not enough
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life
Let’s waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads
I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me

    Wow, what an incredible quilt! And I love the glass work Suffragette piece (I also have earrings just like the one you added to the piece, but with red beads rather than black). xx

      Thank you for your comment about the glass piece. The earring just suggested the colours and shape to me. 🙂

      We sing lots of interesting stuff, some quite unexpected. We are working on John Lennon’s Imagine right now and Waterloo Sunset is next in line. 🙂
