We had one slightly worrying thought and that was, that we had been able to set this display up using only a small selection of work from only 3 people (apart from 2 charity quilts). However we did have a lovely time chatting to interested people who seemed very keen to have a go and promising to come to our meetings. plus lots of lovely comments on the impact of our display. So all in all a good day rounded off by the fact that I won two 3rd prizes, one for my Snowman Redwork embroidery and one for the knitted Baby blanket (see posts on 29th & 31st Aug respectively) Whooo Hooo! I always say I enter to support the show but it's nice to bring home a prize too don't you think? I won the princely sum of £1.00 ...now what to spend it on????
Tonight is Westbury Park Quilters meeting and we shall be having a workshop on making a Victorian Crazy patchwork pin cushion which I am really looking forward to as it's a favourite technique of mine, so more on that later, as I'm off to assemble the requirements before lunch, then I plan to sit in the conservatory and sew all afternoon while it still warm enough to do so.
See you again soon
PS. My darling DH has agreed I can paint the workroom white (it hasn't been decorated since DD was about 11 yrs old (and she's now considerably older than that) and that he will HELP!!!! Yee haa!!! hopefully nice white wall will reflect more light so no more shady corners.L
