What a busy weekend I have had, yesterday it was up early and off to the Christmas pageant with my daughter in law Katherine and grand children Leo and Ziva. Two very excited little ones joined in with 300,000 others to welcome Santa to town. Leo was even more excited when he got to sit on a police motor cycle.
Last night DH and I went out to dinner and then a movie with some friends. We saw Captain Phillips, which was starring Tom Hanks. I thoroughly enjoyed this true story of a container ship being pirated by Somalian fishermen. Tom Hanks was as always brilliant.
Today it was off to the quilt fair with bloggy friend Sue from Mother patchwork. Sue and I had never met before but have been talking about catching up for months. It was so nice to put a face to a name and enjoy the show together. I also ran into a few other Quilters guild members and friends, Sheila, Pip and Wendy.
I took quite a lot of photos of quilting for inspiration as I am trying to branch out with my FMQ. I don't believe I am permitted to show the photos, so I better not. What I can show you however is the stash that I purchased. A seven pack of rotary blades, sewing machine oil in a drip free dispenser, titanium machine needles and a lovely fat quarter stack of Astor Manor.
I have not got any sewing to show you, as its all been block swap obligations this week, but am excited that Homespun have purchased a second design from me that I have also started work on so not allowed to share it. Not sure yet when this one will be published so stay tuned for that.
