Wow, you lucky thing! I can't wait to see what you are working on, I'm useless at hand-stitching, and I get bored easily! Come on, lets see a corner!!

I just checked out a book of her work from the library! And here you are taking a class from her! I can't wait to see what you've made.

Lesley

Your Saturday sounds like the perfect way to spend a day! Please show us what you made - please!!!

Oh wow! I am sooooooooooooo jealous! A class with Janet Bolton????? You lucky lucky lucky thing! And I love washing lines recreated in textiles! I made one many years ago (and not very well) based on JB principles but then sold it and really wish now that I hadn't! It wasn't very good at all and the colours were much too bright but I still loved it! Can't wait to see what you have made!

Well, that wasn't what I was expecting - but what an adventure! You lucky thing! I hope we will get to see the finished article - I bet it's lovely.

Oh how wonderful Ali. That more than makes up for the dull wet weather surely! I have been thinking in dabbling in some collage type creativity of late, so would love to see what you came up with. No pressure!

Joanne

Sounds like a thoroughly nice way to spend a day even if you're currently unsure about the end result.

Know what you mean about the rain :)

kirsty

Oh man, I would KILL to do a class with Janet Bolton! Can't wait to see what you made (and I bet it will grow on you!)

What a wonderful way to spend the day, I'm very envious!
Hope the weather improves so we can have a peep.

Zoe

yes, the weather is poo and all mine have been indoors so far too x

driftwood

oh it sounds fabulous, and I love your inside photos, those splashes of colour are a real joy today!

Dragonfly

I've not heard of Janet Bolton, but it looks like a great workshop. Can't wait to see your results!
Love the photos -it's so grey here, they brightened the morning!

Kitty

Wimped out of the knicker nicking then? Can't say I blame you - must be much nicer to do in the summer. Seriously, a Janet Bolton workshop sounds fabulous - can't wait to see what you've made. Take care. x

June

I'm really enjoying your photo series! You've got some great shots.

Louise

I'm loving your photos and it's nice to see a bit of grey during our Summer. There was a really good clothes line quilt done for the doll quilt swap by an English blogger 'Florences Attic'. It's really cute and was my favourite of the swap. Can't wait to see your pic - I bet the class was brilliant!

AnnieB

sounds like a great way to spend Saturday
thanks for the link to that fd flickr toy site - I'd been wondering how those little mosaics were made - and now I know!

Emma

Can't think of a better way to spend a Saturday! I still haven't finished my Janet workshop piece - mine was a tree though! Please show yours!!!!

monica

see? told you she was quite an awesome character! And so unfairly talented.

I love doing Janet Bolton stuff.

Take a look at the Mrs Noahs Quilt Along Flickr group, to see some Janet Bolton inspired work.

A washline is the one thing I'm requesting for Mothers' Day this year.

Dallas

I'm not familiar with Bolton, but I just googled her and she has a very interesting style. I hope you decide to share your work with us.

julia

C'mon show us, pleeease! Can't wait to see it and now you've mentioned it you're going to have to!

Rebecca

Oh how lovely, I adore Janet Bolton's work, I have one of her books which I look through when I want to cheer myself up.

I certainly hear you on the grey weather thing! How much rain can be left?? Your images are great though and this is such a fun challenge, I have been taking my camera everywhere and I am getting a little braver about using it in public.

hannah

oh cool, I went to a Janet Bolton workshop (in Bath!), must have been a couple of years ago now. I like your washing line inspirations, can't wait to see what you made, do finish it, I want keen on mine at first, but i carried on with it and was pleased with the end result (still not framed though, must get round to that!). remember to show us it here!

Kajsa

Janet Bolton! How exciting for you! I'm sure your washing line is beautiful! And I know what you mean about this bloody grey weather. It's finally getting colder here so i wish for some more snow.

Tiel

can't wait to see what you have created and hope some sunshine comes your way soon.

sunny

love those photos! your january looked quite nice!

sacie

i'm looking forward to see your new project.

Simmy

Can't wait to see what you made. Very envious of the fact that you had a crafting day out all by yourself.
