These gorgeous kitty cats belong to Helen (who kindly drove me home from the Lake district and then delivered me to the NEC in Birmingham) were very quick to settle on the end of my bed! On our way to Birmingham the next day we stopped in at a gorgeous patchwork store called Patchwork Chicks.
Karen the owner had just received her stock of my new book and I was thrilled when she asked if I would sign them ready for her customers.
Hanging by the door I spotted these two blocks from my 5 part block of the month quilt Scandinavian Christmas, Karen has done a great job stitching them and her choice of fabrics is lovely, not sure if she has any places left but if you like the colours she is using it may be worth getting in touch.
My journey continued to the NEC in Birmingham where I set up my stand ready for business the next day.
