I have been working hard on completing the finishing touches to the quilts I have entered to the Festival of Quilts at the NEC in Birmingham, which takes place from 11-14 August 2017 (see www.thefestivalofquilts.co.uk for more information). If you have bought your tickets already, see you there! A large package was sent off to the organisers today from our wonderful local post-office in the village.
I have entered six different categories, one of them with a friend (in the ‘Two Person Quilt’ category of course!) so there has been a lot of stitching going on at my house, and even some stitching going on whilst on holiday, in the beautiful South-West of Scotland. This was my top location for stitching:
I had to negotiate stitching time whilst on holiday with my co holiday-maker, but fortunately the European Cup was on at the time and so was Wimbledon, so agreement was quickly reached!
Enjoy your holidays, whether at home or away…
