No I haven't fell off the face of the earth just catching my breath !
First of all a big thanks to Angela. When I thanked her fot the beautiful kitty postcards I mentioned that I would have to keep my eye on them because Patrick loved them so much. A couple of days later guess what arrived....
One for his very own. The look on his face was priceless. It now has pride of place with his football trophys and medals. I wanted to get his picture with it but everytime I think about it he is at school and if I don't update my blog today not sure when I'll get time. Patrick started High School this time and he was very nervous but so far, so good. He seems to be settling in well - a few tears were shed the first morning. Not by him but by me - lol !! He just looked so grown-up in his shirt and tie..
Anyway I have done a bit of sewing. Started something new..
and a bit of knitting..
I went to the Great Northern Quilt Show on Sunday and have lots of photos to share. Will do them over a couple of posts. Although the show has shrunk in recent years there was still plenty of quilts to drool over. I also spent some cash on a few must-haves.
Hanging in all their glory were 2 quilts by a fully-fledged member of Blogland - Karol-Ann. We had hoped to arrange a little meeting this year but unfortunately it was not to be. Here are the quilts. Absolutely beautiful ! Well done Karol-Ann.
Seeing these has made me vow to try and enter one myself next year. I have never done so before and I think this show needs all the support it can get.
Here are a few more that caught my eye..
This was absolutely tiny - maybe 6 inches square ?
I almost got arrested shoving this one in my bag - lol ! I LOVED this..
This one being closely inspected by my friend Sue ( known by my family as Sunbonnet Sue - lol )
This was a real stunner and so well made.
Oh how I loved this. Kept drawing my eyes back again and again. One of these is on my to-do list someday . .
more in next post..
