I really don’t know how I manage to get so far behind these days!!! Well I do, but I am not telling you why…hahaha

I am catching up slowly but very very surely. These are pictures taken at my group on 20 March. It snowed that day on top of the snow we already had, I left it too late to cancel, so Suzanne and I bravely ventured out in the cold cold snow to await the arrival of anyone daft as us to come to the meeting.  I told Suzanne not to set out many tables and no chairs until we saw if anyone came….so while we waited, she went out into the snow and played……She did a huge whirligig pattern with her feet….

    AHH! Women… and quilting women esp are a hardy breed! Glad you had a good session.. and they deserve their discount I would say xx

    • It turned into a really great day in the end, and yes they did deserve the discount. I just didn’t pay myself for that day to make the accounts right. All’s well that ends well, I enjoyed the day and felt that was my payment.

    Lovely work done by the ladies as usual, yes it was bad but it surprising how many will brave the weather when it for something we love makes you wonder how many would if it was for work lol
