I just looked at the clock, it's 4.55, how did the day pass that quickly.?
I spent some time today with a delightful young lady, Georgia Button, just 14 years old, who one day will be one of our outstanding quilters. (Well she already is really) We talked, and planned and played with quilts.
She gave me this beautiful "P" and orange, pink flowers with a star…..!!! I'll treasure them.
I've trialled my new glasses today and they work a treat… only those of you who wear glasses all the time will understand the immense relief you have that new glasses sit properly, mold well and you can see even better !!!
I never forget my first pair of glasses when I was 10….. I discovered that the tree in the distance had leaves.!!!!!
Was it because I read by moonlight cos I wasn't allowed to have the light on at night….!!! or the fact that I read by candle at night under my fathers old brown woolen dressing gown…. can you imagine how dangerous that was…
I strained the heck out of my eyes… and I could have killed myself… or set fire to the house.
Yesterday was hectic and happy. 8 of my long time friends visited the studio and we made quilted present pockets.
They just had to bring their machine and I used my stash.
We've all been friends for 30 years and I encouraged them to begin quilting about 10 years ago. We only get together a couple of times a year now, and we're all sort of 'middling age now….
Between us we have about 60 children…. and I sort of hiccup when I say that.!!! however, we have lots to talk about and we're all pretty proud of our offspring.
Miss Tilly arrived and joined right in. She said she had a lovely day.
