Oops, a bit late but lots of lovely pictures to see so I hope you will forgive me.

It was a great day, lots of ladies turned up for which we thank you, if you keep coming we can keep on going.  I was wearing several hats on this day as I was demonstrating two blocks for the ladies to make and doing some FMQ with a small group up the corner. I love being busy and it worked OK you will be pleased to know.

We also had   at this meeting so lots of lovely new fabrics were purchased….oh yes they were.

Right on with the pictures, I will let them speak for themselves…

As you can see tea plays a very important part of the day for the ladies….

SHOWTIME in the afternoon brought some lovely work to the fore…

Brilliant work by all the ladies, I hope we shall have yet more to show you next month folks.

I am very lucky in that my family and friends know exactly what I like and I am also easily pleased, so a big thank you to all of you, Annette and Clint, Rebecca, Suzanne and Richard, Hubby, Fiona and Isabella, Jean and Ange plus all the peeps who wished me the best on Facebook.

Before my birthday, the week before in fact, my friend Cathy came to visit me, she is from New Zealand, unfortunately I was ill when she came on the Friday, but Annette to the rescue and she looked after her for me, they apparently got on like a house on fire, which is lovely. Cathy came back on the Saturday to see me and I was feeling better, of all the times to get ill, I was so cross with myself. It had been 4 years since we last saw each other, a long time. Hopefully it wont be that till the next time Cathy xxxxxxx. I sent Cathy home with a Quilt she liked and as when she arrived home it was their Winter I hope she puts it t good use, this is the Quilt.

I have been busy making more Quilts for Ange and can say how much I am enjoying making them, they are keeping me busy and my fingers working and they are all going to a good cause. Here are the ones I sent recently to Ange…

I decided to try to sell a few of my Quilts, here they are, they are priced at £50 each plus Pnp,  let me know if you are interested…

So I think that just about brings me up to date for a change, do let me know what you think, if you have any comments to make I am always grateful for them as they make me feel people are actually reading my Blog.  Well I am off to spend some of my birthday gifts now…

So, my friend Debbie rang and reminded me I had not put any pictures on my Blog of my Quilt I entered for this year’s Festival of Quilts [FoQ] – sorry Debs, it is amazing when I realise already a week and a half has passed since we went, so here are some pictures of that day, I hope I can find them all, and apologies right now to folk on FB who have probably seen them all already.

Suzanne took a Selfie of us as we left the drive, Annette has the tickets and I am in charge of Cliff, Suzanne’s mate she takes everywhere with her…


It was lovely to meet up with Carol who I have known for a long time now, she hasn’t changed but I have, into an old lady hahaha, I was cold folks…


I also got to meet this lovely young lady, Victoria Findlay-Wolfe who is an amazing Quilter, love her work, Annette and I kept going back to her area the quilts were just so fabulous…

So there it is, sorry Maggi I didn’t manage to win anything I would have liked to have got something obviously for you but not to be. I tried. I got good comments from the judges, who ever they were, such secrecy surrounds them you would not believe, anyway, here are their comments for you to see, as promised I am sharing, hope you can see as they wrote in pencil…

Came home very tired, so much to see at a Quilt Show and after viewing piks on FB I see I missed loads and loads of them, also the stalls, didn’t manage to get round them all, too much, too little time, too exhausting for me now.

There you go Debbie, hope you like what you see, I have other stuff to catch up on but that will have to be another day. You take care after your Hip replacement, hope the pain eases off soon. Hugs coming your way (((((((xxxxxx))))))))

Comments are always welcome on here, good or bad I am happy with either, just no spammers please.
