Amongst the mini workshops was one making tiny Teddy Bears, they are so cute I could not help but buy a kit, even though I have a drawer full of un-made kits and promised myself NO MORE!
One of the traders was selling packs of nine Tilda FQ's for £7.50, a treat not to be missed even though I had said NO MORE fabric I have enough to last a life time.
Are you starting to see a pattern here? Instead of NO MORE it should read no will power.
The afternoon speaker was Penny Armitage from Devon via the world! She was brilliant and her quilts and stories kept as all entertained. Her love of the countryside around where she lives was very evident in her work, and having learnt to quilt while living in Dubai, her stories left us wanting to hear more.
