The heading for this post sounds like a toast, doesn’t it? Well, it not too far off it!
First, health. With no voice and on my doctor’s recommendation, I’ve skipped AQM this year and instead took up a long standing offer to join some friends at Millrose where, even if I couldn’t talk, I could still listen (and stitch!). The invite was for the weekend, but GJ and I thought a day trip would be just enough at this stage (much and all as we would have loved to have spent the weekend!!). Yes, the B & B is – just! – open!
Would you like a peek? Sue says it’s not quite finished yet, so with that in mind…..
Artistic wealth abounded, with a glorious array of show and tell::
In under 24 hours Jenny had bordered three quilts! (That’s as well as sleeping, eating, talking and shopping!)
And what post of mine on a day out wouldn’t be complete without……FOOD! GJ and I were extremely spoilt and felt like princesses as our hostesses pottered in the kitchen and produced……drum roll please……
There’s now a Wall of Woolly Bits!!
One visitor to the shop, a lady called Liz, was choosing backing and binding for a joyfully colourful quilt. The fabrics were an eclectic mix, telling a story of Liz’s life; fabrics from her school uniform, her children’s school uniforms, dress fabrics from clothes her mum wore and made for children. Such a special collection….
What a happy, happy day!! Thank you to the lovely friends who shared their day, talents, humour, quilts and food with us. GJ and I had a perfectly delightful time, coming home weary but spiritually and creatively satisfied! (It’s a very quiet day here at p and c today!)
’til next time….
