Remember - Its not the length of your life that's important - it's the depth.

The postman knocked!

I  had just arrived home from a days sewing with Clock Tower Quilters when the bell door rang, expecting it to be my son I dicovered it was the postman ?? At 4.10pm on a Saturday - Hmmm strange!!!!!
He handed me a brown paper parcel which I noted was from Hilary, over at City Crafters, well I got sooo excited, eagerly ripping off the paper and tape to discover it was not just the book which I had won on her giveaway last week, but she had also included this gorgeous bag which I just love! and it's just what I need to carry my shopping in when I visit Malvern Show next Saturday.
So a HUGE thank you Hilary! I shall really enjoy using the bag and can't wait to get started on the book... in fact I think an early night calls so I can get a couple of chapters read tonight.. looks like the reading 'drought' could be over - Yaaaayyy!
As for CTQ we had a full contingent of members present plus a visitor, here are some of them 'hard at work'.
There was some lovely Show & Tell,  Mollie (centre back above) who is very productive had brought in her Quilt to share which she made for one of her Grandsons..
It's from a book by Sarah Wellfair of Goose Chase Quilting in Cheltenham. Next she showed us a length of 'bunting' on a Christmas theme...

  then before 'close of play' she produced some Halloween bunting as well...
 I spent some of my time working on the Alphabet Wallhanging which I am making for Little H, I only got one panel done and then found I had not left enough room to add the letter 'g' (which now stands for Grrrr!),
so I may have to do the block again or find a way round it, there were some suggestions from the girls so I will think about those!
After Lunch I made Start on a bag UFO which I had cut out the fabrics for earlier this year, the fabrics are part of a FQ bundle bought at Malvern last year and are quite different to colours I usually buy so it will be interesting for me to see how I like the bag when it's done.

Well tea time beckons so I'm off to the Kitchen, wonder what delicacy I shall end up with tonight, but before I go how about this little girl with a mischievous grin, at 15 months she's walking, so we really have to be ready for anything!

Bye for now
