I met an acquaintance the other day who asked what I’d been up to. Such a difficult question to answer when the questioner is not a quilter! After some quick, intense, thinking I ended up saying, “hmm, not much, just sewing and socialising”!! But it actually is quite a lot, this sewing and socialising, and I shall share my weekend’s worth with you, ‘cos you understand!
Friday at GJ’s; always a delightful day!!
At the end of last week we’d had some wet stuff falling from the sky. It’s been a long time since we’d seen any and it took me a while to remember it was called…..ummm….precipit….no, no, er….moistu……no, don’t tell me…..ah, yes! Rain!! The subsequent days had been overcast and decidedly cool – not complaining, just saying(!) – so it was lovely to enjoy a sunny, mild, well, spectacular day, and at Millrose too!
As always there was lots to see, including a lovely display of Emma’s Terra Australis fabric
Last visit, I’d asked Sue about some low volume fabrics and she challenged me to put together some bolts, which I did with great pleasure and enthusiasm! This visit there’s a pile of fat quarter packs
It’s catchy, as Sue has decided to ask some of her visiting teachers to also choose fabrics for fat quarter bundles, and Judy has put together a gorgeous selection
I keep meaning to share with you the funny story of Catriona’s chooks; especial care was taken with the naming of each of the five chickens. After serious thought and consideration they are:-
:: Audrey Henburn
:: Henny Potter
:: Kelly Cluckson
:: Princess Layer, now known as Lindsay Lohen, and
:: Hennifer Lopez
Aren’t they clever?
There was so much to choose from for lunch, and after agonising indecision by us all……
All this, plus chat and laughter, and solving the problems of the world!! Such a blissful and satisfying weekend!!
PS. If you’d like one of the bundles, just contact Millrose on the link above – they’ll be only too happy to assist!!
