WARNING: If you don't like the colour yellow look away now!
It was a spur of the moment decision, but Sunday morning husband offered to drive me to the Malvern Hills with a stop at The Malvern Quilt Show.
Husband enjoys going back to this part of the world as he went to college in Worcester, and as a student used to work as a car park attendant at the showground; and he made sure he told the present attendants this little known fact!
There were lots of nice quilts to see and lots of retailers. I came away with just a light bulb (from a very pushy salesman), which doesn't work, and now I have to forgo any savings I made in postage to get it replaced, but moving swiftly on.
We had a very nice pub lunch in British Camp and discussed how we are only just beginning to appreciate the fact that the teenagers are now of an age when they can be left, or rather WANT to be left, and we can go off and do things by ourselves.
Hope you have enjoyed the patchwork of yellow and green fields that we enjoyed on the way home.
I told you there would be a Prayer Flag in there somewhere.
Thank you everyone for your lovely comments on my last post. I am feeling a bit guilty because I am fine and things are okay, it is just that other commitments have scuppered some of my plans and I felt I needed to explain why I wouldn't be entering FoQ this year. As Radka says "That's life" but it's okay.
And to prove that mindless repetitve quilting is a good way to keep you occupied, (along with BBC Radio 4 Extra- for those Brits who haven't tuned in to the delights of this station, I can recommend it for the great dramas that it airs) here is a finished quilt.
I had so many scraps and sheeting fabric left over from this quilt, that I had to use it up.
I quilted it, and quilted it and I am really happy with the texture.
So much so that you are getting three close up shots!
Anyway, onwards and upwards! 'Till next time!
