My children also bought me some books:
Lee Child - The Affair ( Love Lee Child books!)
Pat Ferguson - Zen Quilting Workbook
Velda Newman - A workshop with Velda Newman adding dimension to your quilts
Susan Brubaker Knapp - Point, Click, Quilt!
I have since read these from cover to cover and my head is now so full of great ideas!
On Wedesday I decided to try my hand at marbling fabric. I have had a marbling kit for a while and just never started it.
The first attempt was done using water in a dish, adding the paper floating dots, adding the ink and stirring around the dish.
I found the dots were not very easy to use and much of the ink ended up on the bottom of the dish. Maybe next time I need to add a oily layer to keep the ink on top of the water.

Maybe I will need to try this again some time in the future!
Lastly this week I finally finished a project that I had started months ago.
A friend of mine (Terence) makes zentangle artist trading cards and he gave me one a while ago.
I have tried to reproduce this with machine embroidery on the sewing machine and finally it is finished:
