Apart from another visit to the doctor and a trip to the chemist for a third lot of antibiotics, I hadn’t left the house for a week as this sinus infection continues its hold on yours truly. All my social activities have been cancelled including, Agog and Aghast!, attendance at the Australian Quilt Convention – missed it for The. First. Time. Ever!!
However, yesterday morning my lovely friend Glenda called in and, brooking no argument, bundled me into the car to take me to a much awaited, long held sewing day; I had thought she’d be taking my apologies, not me!
Our travels took to us to the beautiful home of Cathy
(read more about this gorgeous furniture here), where, surrounded by a sumptuous array of quilts, we caught up with friends, made new friends, and, as always, had a fabulous time! Here’s a sampling of what we saw and got up to…
There were bloggers, ex-bloggers and non-bloggers.
Fascinating to discover how we’d all came to this point, be it from the traditional route of beginners class at a shop (me!), or the self taught from books, magazines and Internet.
Wonderful to hear where some of us want to/are going to venture to next in our quilting journey.
Interesting to discuss the state of our industry and the technology available.
Such a fun day! Thank you ladies, and especially Cathy for hosting this delightful sew-in!
Within 5 minutes of being dropped at home, late afternoon, I was in my pj’s, with a cup of tea, doing a fetching impression of a couch potato, and there I stayed for the rest of the afternoon and evening. I valiantly stayed up to view “Call the Midwife”, sobbing my way through another fabulous episode (not a good look for the sinuses!), and fell exhausted into bed not to arise until some 11 hours later!
It’s going to be another quiet day here at p and c!! Hope you had a great weekend.
