… was HOT! Today was the warmest day we’ve had this Spring – misty this morning, burnt off to a sunny blue sky, and is now darkening into this:
so far for all the darkening clouds, we’ve had about six drops of rain.
The Stitcher’s Dream Day Out was held (as usual) under (in?) a marquee on the lawns outside The Quilters Angel. There were about 140 women in the tent – and not a whisper of a breeze. Mostly that was ok – just with my wonky thermostat, I had to lie down on the cool grass a few times.
The projects were gorgeous – remembering that I am NOT a “girly-girl”, and pink really isn’t usually my thing! Everyone gets a kit with the materials to make one of the projects, and all the patterns so you can make the rest later if you want to. The theme was “Vintage”.
I was quite happy with the my kit: the design was shown mounted as a wall hanging, but I think it will probably be a cushion: (please note – my photo is wonky, the actually piece does have even borders!) This is “Butterfly Dreams” by Leanne May of Candlelight Creations.
So far, this is where I’m up to:
Um yeah, Chriss and I may have spent more time chatting with each other and the other ladies on our table than actually stitching!
Today I also got to meet up with someone I’ve known online for AAAAAGES but never met face to face before – Carmel! When she’s had a chance to get home and on her computer, there will be photos.
I’m off for my “nana nap” – you know, the little lie down you have to have after going out? (or just because it’s the afternoon…)
