Here we are in Florida for two weeks holiday. I have not worked out how to add photos from my iPad2 yet. Exciting time in Gatwick when the whole airport was evacuated as the fire alarm was going off. Turned out to be McDonalds! Due to my bad knee I had to have a minibus lift back across the airfield to get back into the building. This took us through parts of Gatwick you never normally see. Today is Mothering Sunday and we are going to see some of the sights and have a look at the Temple.

I now have completed four of the Wee Bird series and have eight more to make.
This should like to a jigsaw of the quilted bird.
Having bought 4 yellow, 4 pink, 4 green and 4 blue FQ's for the sashing I had lots left, so cut it all into 2 1/2 inch strips and pieced it back together for the backing.. still have enough left over to make a Linus Quilt!
I then used some of the strips for the multi coloured binding.
We managed to get on the silk painting workshop with Yvonne Bell, and had a wonderful time painting on small silk squares to make two cards each.
In the afternoon Yvonne gave us all a wonderful talk on Vestment Designs.

Today a group of us  went to Threads and Patches at Fenny Stratford for one of Sally's special days.
The day started with cake and a drink, then followed a number of demonstrations some causing quite a laugh! Making a Bow-tie block will never be the same again!!
This was followed by a very nice buffet lunch, and then "shop till you drop" one member even spent her car parking money! Thank you Threads and Patches for another great day, we'll see you again in November.
