I drove northwards today and visited Ange
in her new home. Well, new to her and her family. We sat and decided on what were the most necessary house renovations, so when her other half comes home he can be informed that we have it all sorted and not to worry about these things himself. Most men do know this is the best way, don't they?
Ange cut hexie papers with my Go! Baby, and tested the theory that a Go! dye would fit in her Sissix. The answer was no, just in case you are curious.
|Ange is not so fuzzy in real life.|
Ange made a fantastically yummy salad for lunch, and then I sat and did some hand stitching on my Stitch Tease quilt. I have ten and a half white stars still to do, before I start on the background. Easy peasy (she says, with tongue in cheek).
And I looked at some of Ange's great library of quilt books. I am officially in love
. With this book.
Do any of you have it? Given the choice I might still be at Ange's house admiring the quilts in it, drooling. But Ange grabbed her book back, and threw me out the house.
Joking! I had a lovely day, all courtesy of the loveliest of friends.
Ohh thats one of my favourite books :-) Sounds like you had a great day.ReplyDelete
I've read you need to cut the go dies or make sure its under 6 inches, don't think its worth the hassle tbh now sizzix have more quilting diesReplyDelete
Sounds like a lovely day!ReplyDelete

I have that book, got it for Christmas a couple of years back, it's full of inspiration isn't it.
I'm presuming you had both been at the cooking sherry when the fuzzy photo was taken ;) Just the cover of that book would sell it to me. Looks like a fun day :)ReplyDelete
That book is on my wish list, so now could you put it on you 'pich it' list please. The Go die should work - was it too skinny?ReplyDelete

I have that book and took a class from the author at QuiltCon. What fun to visit a quilting friend.ReplyDelete
Sounds like great fun and a great sense of humour! The book looks interesting....ReplyDelete
Sounds like an absolutely wonderful day. I couldn't imagine much better. Maybe if there was cake and tea. Was there cake?ReplyDelete
Sounds like a great day!ReplyDelete
The Go dies do fit if you hack them... but it basically means lobbing off a bit of the side ;) There's a tutorial online somewhereReplyDelete
That's it! I'm starting to save for a holiday to spend time stitching and eating with you guys - you always sound like you are having soooo much fun.ReplyDelete
Isn't it great to be able to visit each other, I'm sure you had a great day! The only thing better than stitching is stitching with friends!ReplyDelete
I'm so happy you both had such a great day. Ange is just the liveliest so you must be really lovely too!!! She really needed a day having fun and you sure provided that. Love to you both.ReplyDelete
That book is going on my wish list!ReplyDelete
fun day. I was under the impression that the accu quilt and sizzix dies were interchangeable. Do the sizzix fit the accu quilt?ReplyDelete
