There is no chance of the planned outdoor quilt photography happening here in northern Sydney today ... it has been bucketing rain for days, and doesn't look like stopping any time soon. Looking around the blogosphere for some indoor entertainment, this recent post from Jenny Bowker filled the billed nicely - a substantial post and lots of pictures of the workshops conducted by two Egyptian 'tentmaker' applique artists, Ekramy Hanafy and Hany Abd el Khader, with members of Canberra Quilters during a recent visit.
And Bonnie K Hunter has released the introductory post for her free (northern hemisphere) Winter 2013 Mystery Quilt, Celtic Soltice - the first set of instructions will be posted on 29th November. The introduction tells you how this project will work, and gives the fabric requirements. Choosing fabrics from your stash - another good activity for a very wet afternoon!
