Cast and Crew
The Golfer:: My loving husband of some 20 years (yes, I was a child bride!), who likes nothing better than flogging a little white ball around the green fairways (and hopefully not getting into the rough) of his local golf course.
Ma & Pa Kettles:: My parents who live in the country, fondly known as The Kettles. Sadly my gorgeous Dad died in 2015, so it’s just Mum now.
MyDearFIL & MIL:: The Golfer’s Dad & Mum who have now both passed away.
LittleBigBrother:: My brother who is younger than me, but at 6 foot, definitely bigger than me!!
DocSisterInLaw:: LittleBigBrother’s wife (who has a Doctorate!)
Poppet:: My beautiful niece, and daughter of LittleBigBrother and DocSisterInLaw
(blis) n. 1. perfect happiness; serene joy
Obviously the collective noun for a group of stitchers!!
- A couple of spots available @nunonunomontalbert for a class with me next Wednesday 21/9. Ring Trudy at the shop for details. Starting a new project; finishing an old one; wanting to learn a new technique; stuck somewhere in the middle! 😱 I can help!! Hope to see you there! 😀🤗Had a lovely time shopping for more #gingerjarsquilt fabric @patchnquilt yesterday. Finally worked out which fabric goes with which….. I think! 😂😂😂The first of my “Ginger Pots” by @leesachandlerdesigns using @kaffefassettstudio fabrics from Leesa’s “Madam Butterfly Quilt” pattern available thru @chandlers_cottage or join Leesa’s club “a quilter’s life” and get the pattern as part of the membership !! #aquilterslife #chandlerscottage #leesachandlerdesigns #appliqueHad exceptionally lovely time last week being a student in @tatiana_popova_owl_crafts class #moderncrewelwork Wonderful, sharing teacher and learnt so much from Tatiana.
