If you're wondering what to do with yourself this weekend, the Spring Quilt Festival at Chilford Hall is well worth a day out - with lots of WONDERFUL stalls selling all manner of fabrics and patterns and books and notions - and lots of friends to meet up with to oooh and aaah at their purchases - but unfortunately this year I'm not going - actually, I still haven't used eveything I bought there LAST time, when I went with a huge shopping bag and a purse full of money to the Autumn Quilt Festival back in November. After my trip to Norway last month I really needed to save some money so...... I'm feeling just a LITTLE bit virtuous today as by staying at home I have saved myself a rather small fortune!!! So instead I'm going to be creative, do a little bit of sewing, and finalising a pattern for a little bag of my own design. I've been well and truely fortified, with several cups of tea (including a herbal one that I didn't know whether to drink or to smoke!!) and a Norwegian breakfast. Oh, yes, that is the latest copy of Vignette magazine you can see lurking in the picture - (that arrived in the post on Friday) which has given me some more ideas for being creative :) Anyway, my friend Heather went to Chilford Hall yesterday (I really do need to see her sooooon to inspect all her purchases properly) and she's written all about her day out there on her blog .....
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
