Here is a photo of from left to right, me (Bluebell) a friend Elaine and my lovely Cottonreel, we had a lovely day you can see some of the Malvern Hills in the background. There were lots of people there as it was the first day and it was a lovely sunny day.The first port of call was the Toilet (Bathroom) there was a queue as usual then it was coffee time with a slice of cake, then it was time to go in and face the hordes, as usual we wanted to look at everything at once but we calmed down and started around the perimeter of the room Oh! so many lovely fabrics and books and sewing machines all these wonderful goodies, we did a lot of stroking and oohing and aahing and then we settled into a steady stroll and started to buy, we all bought some ovely things and I will list mine after this post, there is a stall called Rich Pickings and she has bags of the most exquisite lace and white embroidered bits which are the left over bits from french lingerie I bought quite a few of these bags they are so special and this is the only place I see them. I got a scrapbag of Tilda Fabrics for £1 and lots of buttons there were oh so many. We sat and had our lunch outside in the sunshine and then we went back in for another look around, this time we looked at the quilts that had been made and entered in the show there were some good ones. We started to wilt and knew it was time to go home, the journey was good and we got to Cottonreels and had a cup of tea and a biscuit and then it was time to go home and look at the things I had bought Lovely!
Look how happy we are we are off to Malvern Quilt Show tomorrow(Thursday) I can't wait we always have a lovely time at this venue, Malvern is beautiful, surrounded by hills, as you are driving towards it it simply takes your breath away. We drive through villages with duckponds and thatched cottages and then we start seeing the signs Quilt Show This Way! We usually have to hold Kathleen down she gets so excited and she always brings loads of food and for some reason cold toast which after a while becomes limp and soggy and this always gives us a good laugh. There are always some lovely booths with loads of fabric and also lots of books and patterns. I have my money in my purse and I am raring to go, will tell you all about it.
Purchase a pattern for this lovely cushion fromhttp://elefantz.blogspot.com and you will be helping to save the lives of mothers in Somalia, the money raised for the sale of the pattern will buy a sterilised pack for the mother to use when giving birth. There is also the chance to go into an auction to buy the actual cushion that Jenny has made which was designed by Jenny herself.There is also a givaway of the makings of one of the cushions, so please go along and have a look.
Hello People, I hope you are all having a great weekend especially where it is Mothers Day, we have already had our Mothers Day in March. Do you see my cakestands these are plates I bought from charity shops and places and I found a site where they sell the handles to make cakestands and so here they are, they look so pretty I love them, my husband Tony drilled the holes which was a bit scary but was very successful. I am still busy making my heirloom quilt and today I finished all the blocks I am really looking forward to putting them all together. I am hoping this volcano dust goes away and stops disrupting flights it is such a nuisance for people hanging around at the airports not fun at all. My car is a bit poorly and has to go into the garage tomorrow to be fixed, thats o.k as long as it is fit and well for Thursday because we are off to the Malvern Quilt Show, Cant Wait!
