A Group Outing

On Sunday a group of us went to the NEC for the Festival of Quilts. We had a lovely time and it was really nice to go in a group, even if we did temporarily lose one person!

We saw Julie's quilt which was stunning. It was nice to see it in the flesh. We also saw some of Gina's work. Her work was been used to promote the Julia Caprara School Of Textile Arts.

I did make a few considered purchases. Some fabric obviously, you can't go to a show like that and not buy any fabric.

A couple of kits.

A few books.

And some more, just in case.

I have finished my Flying Geese bag. The geese aren't meant to have points. I'm really pleased with how it has turned out.

I used plastic handles for a change.

This sunflower is in my garden, it's so pretty I thought I'd share it with you.

I have done some more work in my sketchbook but I'll show you that another day, but I will tell you that it involved something you would normally use in cooking.

How did I miss Liberty fabric necklaces???

Thank you for the link Angela. Well done on the shopping. I did buy some fabric but only calico and sheeting from Doughty's. The books will keep you busy when you can find the time ;o)

I was hoping to come down and see you tomorrow as I won't be coming Saturday but I am not too well today so sorry, I will have to postpone.

Btw, there was a miniature quilt at the show by a Delyth Mattingly from Huntingdon. Is that the Delyth that comes to your workshops? I think she was there for the Ruth Issett one.

How come you can always make your blogs sound so interesting - we had a great day out.
