Hi folks. Here we are at another fun catch up day with all our crafty blogging friends from all over the world. I love my snooping days and for those that would like to know more about what I'm talking about you can find all the information over at the Stamping Ground with our Queen of snoop, Julia.....just click on the link to find out more and join in if you're tempted.
It's been another quality 'family together time' week again this week while I help and support Shell while she recovers from her surgery. She's slowly getting there and will be able to manage her little twinnies again soon but for now we are really enjoying our special time together. So what I'm showing you this week is where Jo and I went on Saturday.
We booked on a quilting workshop a few weeks ago and as others could step in to help out with the twins over the weekend I managed a girly day out. We enjoyed a morning's workshop at the Quilters Trading Post at Buerton Old School, Woore Road, Buerton, Cheshire and by the end of the morning this is what I'd made...
I'm rather pleased with mine and also really love how choosing different fabrics give such different results as you can see from this pic that I took of all the finished quilt blocks made by the others in the group...
Aren't they all lovely. We had a fab day doing something we love in the company of really special friends so what more could we ask for?......well maybe being surrounded by all these gorgeous wall mounted quilts for stimulation helped....
Oh and having a room filled to capacity with the most amazing fabrics available for us to buy...if we wanted to [and of course who wouldn't?].
I think you should be able click on the pics to enlarge them but better than that if you are in the area it's well worth dropping in to check out the gorgeous fabrics yourself....and I dare you not to buy some yourself. Here's the rainbow of fat quarters that I came home with [ an early birthday treat from my big sister...thanks Jo].
Don't you just love the gorgeous colours? I'm really not certain what I will be making with it all but one thing is for sure and that is I will spend many happy hours stroking it all before using it :-)
Thanks for calling by today. If you leave me a message to let me know you've called by I will do my best to return the visit as soon as I get the chance.
