Well I've been busy sorting through all the photographs that I took at FoQ and really didn't know where to start, so thought I'd start at the very beginning. My daughter Alice has had some VERY busy days, working at FoQ with Lynette Anderson, who had travelled over from Australia to do the show and was also teaching at workshops around the country too. Alice and me had travelled up to Birmingham on Wednesday, the day before the show started, and you can see Lynette is really busy getting everything unpacked and getting her stall set up - when it was completed it looked absolutely great! There was a wonderful display of Lynette's quilts and cushions and bags and sewing kits and journals, as well as patterns and fabric and trimmings for sale. And yes I did do a little bit of shopping here haha!! Alice had a great time with Lynette, and her friend Lesley too, and the days flew past really quickly - the stall was super busy, with lots of ladies watching Lynette's demonstrations of using the Apliquick tools. Soon it was time to pack everything away again and I realized I hadn't got a picture of Lynette with Alice!! Luckily the sign for Lynette's stand was still pinned up, so we quickly pulled it down for a final photo. We had a super time, and Alice really loved helping Lynette - who is now off teaching workshops in Cornwall, then London, before she heads off home to Australia. It was great to meet up with Lynette again (I first met her when she was over here 3 years ago and I was lucky enough to do a couple of workshops with her) - thank you so much Lynette for all your wonderful generosity. Oh and I nearly forgot - a huge thank you to Emma (Lynette's soon-to-be daughter-in-law!) for making sure all the helpers on Lynette's stand had a beautiful wooden name badge to wear - thank you so much Emma x
