Sunday was our last day. There were some more shopping adventures.
Why, oh why didn’t I go with them????? Mind you, I wouldn’t have been able to decide between the green and the red!! Serious, serious bag envy! Then some bag show and tell, and Miss F’s stunning Sophie Digard
By leaving time, lots of progress had been made….
Jan K worked steadily on her wooly border. Gotta love this little birdy!
And me? I hadn’t intended buying anything at Mary’s, but saw this fabric and soon had gathered together some co-ordinates….
You see, I have some special news. I’m going to be an Aunty! LittleBigBrother and DocSisterInLaw are having a baby girl in April!! I’m calling her Poppet, and Poppet needs at least one quilt, don’t you think? I thought this fabric would see Poppet through from babyhood to girlhood. My brain whirred all though Friday’s lunch…….. By Saturday, decision made, cutting started, sample block made……. I then hogged the design wall and gradually Poppet’s quilt grew
So once that was done, I started cutting what I had planned to sew at Sewjourn!
Thank you to my fellow Sewjourners for a fabulous weekend, and a special thanks to you, GJ for organising it; we were an eclectic group, many of whom I didn’t know well before the weekend, but now count as dear friends. I’ve said it before, I know, but there’s nothing more special than the friendship of fabulous women, especially quilting women!!
