Oh it is with great excitement that I have a VERY VERY important announcement to make. I am off to Yorkshire for a few days on a quilting holiday with Philippa Naylor!! She has taught classes before at my local quilt shop, Quilters Haven, but due to work commitments I was never able to attend - so this is going to be just fantastic, as I will be with her for FOUR WHOLE DAYS - and I'll also get to visit her at home and look around her studio - yes, I am just a little bit giddy thinking about it all!! The picture shown here is taken from her fabulous book, "Quilting in the Limelight" - her work is just AMAZING! It will be a great way to learn lots of new techniques - I am going with my friend Helen and some of her like-minded crafty friends. We'll be staying at Highfield Farm, where we'll be doing lots of sewing and eating and sewing and yakking. Here are some tasters of Philippa's stunning award winning quilts....
.....and finally this shows detail from "Spider Plant". As you can see Philippa's quilts are so vibrant and exciting - I hope I can produce something as fabulous as this! So, my case is packed full to bursting (mostly with fabrics and threads rather than clothes hehe!!) and I'll share lots of piccies with you all when I get back!

These are the UK shops that I use to purchase my quilting supplies - fabrics and threads etc.
