I have had a lovely day today. I opened the shop and to my surprise it was busy. I like it when it's busy because it means I have people to talk about fabric and thread, and if I am very lucky they bring their work in to show me. Carol came in with a quilt front that she has made- it was circles within circles and it was absoloutely fabulous.
Carol brought her husband, Pam was there with her partner Rob, mum spent the day with me (more about her in a minute). Neil and dad came in and a lady who is new to patchwork and quilting. Then as if that wasn't a full house Jeff our website designer arrived with his camera! Luckily he is a good sport and wasn't fazed by any of the goings on. So hopefully there will soon be some new photos on the website.
Anyway back to mum, she is making a quilt by hand, sewing together lots of hexagons. She wanted to lay it out on the tables to see how looked and if she had made enough and could start putting it together. Poor mum we worked out that she needs to make at least another 8 groups. It looks lovely though.
It has taken mum about 2 years to get this far, it has certainly been worth the effort though.
