So after trying to recover for the last few days, heres my #fqr2014
First up The Goodie Bag!!! It was a good one, thanks so much to those sponsors.
Playful Little Paper Pieced Projects that the Mail Pouches is from and was itching to start on one of the projects. As I didn't read the prep instructions well enough, my pouch is a little on the short and stout size, but I still love it!
After lunch I had Quilt Maths with Lynne and I have to say, I loved seeing how people work out there fabric amounts, which were all very different to my "lets order half a yard and see how we go" approach!
Saturday night was ram packed! It started with swaps……
Pippa and Dolores
Next a quick stroll down to Shaukat with Sonia and Jen for a little peek at some Liberty treats.
Later, I was lucky enough to be in the winning team (Team Butler) on the pub quiz and have honestly not laughed as much in a long time.
Celebrate With A Stitch looks like it's got some good projects in it!
On the team was the lovely Reene, who I made a name tag for last year and she wasn't able to attend and she wore it this year, so I had to get a photo, even if it was nearly 11 at night!
On Sunday I got to do Fabulously Fast Tile Quilt with the most down to earth lady Amy Smart, she was just so lovely and just gave us some fantastic tips.
|Lynne looks very serious here!!|
I learnt so much this time, but I think the real thing I've come away with is new friends, meeting Sarah, Sonia, Trash (the social secretary with brownies and a really nice pair!!), Hadley, Cara, Sarah, Jo and loads of others. I know it sounds a bit corny but you 'speak' to people on IG, blogs and emails and you feel you sort of know them, but you don't, but now when I read Trash's IG comment I can hear her in my head…..which is slightly worrying!!!! But honestly, if I could do it all again next weekend I would and sadly I can't wait for next year!!!
