Oh my, I am delirious with joy! I loved the Festival of Quilts and am already determined to go back next year. I was blown away with the level of talent on display in the various quilts - and have no intention of even attempting some of the things that others are doing. Rather just stand back and admire. Some of it may not be my kind of thing but that doesn't stop you from seeing the skill, patience and imagination that went into creating each piece.
I met up with Nicky, from Mrs Sew and Sow. What a wonderful woman. Great person to spend the day with. It was the first time we met in person but chat all the time via emails and our blogs comments. She surprised me by giving me a gift -
Which is a great memory for our day out because she made a label that will allow me to always remember -
It was such a lovely and generous thing for Nicky to do for me. And I, fresh from holiday, took nothing! Arrghhh! So wish I had thought about it in advance. But, to Nicky, thank you so much for your company today and the mug rug. It was a pleasure to spend time with you and get to know you better. Needless to say, Nicky got a photo of me and there is a photo of the two of us on her camera. I failed. I am such a numpty. Think I was too busy talking and enjoying her company!
I would like to tell you more but I will save that for the morning. I will leave you with a peak at my bounty for the day.
I am one happy woman!
