On monday I travelled back with Mandy and Izi, two lovely ladies who are both very talented long arm quilters, they had attended my workshop at Cowslip and sweetly offered me a lift back to London.
Monday night I got to spend with friends, a lovely supper and alot of happy laughter (its been a couple of years since we last saw each other). There was some show and tell, Maureen and Valerie have both been stitching like crazy women to complete some projects...just look at thier bag collection (pictures taken on my phone, I left my big camera at home to save suitcase space for samples).
I love the soft green prints in Valeries garden pillow which is the one featured on the front of my new book 'Country Cottage Quilting'.
How about these gorgeous puppy slippers....using my secret garden fabrics.... patterns are available here if you want to make a pair for yourself, choose from puppy, kitty, house, christmas, pumpkin or garden.
Maureen has also finished her quilt top from 'Stitched By Me' she has made hers in the summertine friends colourway and her stitching is so neat. If you want to make a quilt like this I still have a few fat eigth bundles of these fabrics left but be quick if you want some x x
I had a great sleepover at Maureens where I slept soundly and was refreshed ready for my onward journey (thanks Maureen). I will be seeing these girls and some other members of the group on my return to the UK next week.
The final show and tell was this wonderful jacket that Valerie was wearing, I have to say that the secret garden fabrics look great as log cabin and the jacket is brilliant.
bye for now
