Just a quick post tonight. We fly out from Manchester tomorrow morning – early.
We had a great day today. My friend Janet invited me to come along this morning to a Linus quilt group meeting. This is the charity for kids that started in the US. It has spread to a lot of other places, including here. We had a group of about 12 ladies, each of whom was working on a quilt for children.
Janet brought an extra sewing machine for me, and other essentials, and I brought some fat quarters of cute kids’ fabric I got at the Birmingham show. It only took me 4 hours to make this little quilt! Janet has offered to quilt it in my absence (thanks, Janet!). Here’s a pic of the quilt, and the rest of us, just before I left to drive south.
Thanks, everyone, for a great morning. You have no idea how much I appreciated getting my hands on a sewing machine again! (it’s been a long time…..)
Thanks for reading.
