So, since I missed so many chances to post over the course of the year I thought I would make a bit of a photo review here so we can all catch up.
February - We enjoyed our local stately home, Belton House and I repurposed a friend's hexagon quilt top.
March was a busy month. A trip to the NEC for the Sewing For Pleasure Show and a visit to St Agnes in Cornwall.
April saw quilt making and a trip to Killarney.
June, halfway through, and a trip to Scarborough, a quilt show at Spalding, a trip to York to the quilt museum for one of its last exhibitions,
July, family time and friends time on a trip to Yorkshire to house and dog sit. Time for days out with friends.
Are you still keeping up? 5 months to go.
August, it was stitching with friends at a local garden and the inevitable Festival of Quilts.
The friends who I ran away to Yorkshire with also got me into more trouble to help me with my grief for mum,
Big Textile Show at Leicester, my first vist. The fence was between us and the shortest route to the car and we were tired. Happily none of us fell off it!
October found us back at Belton House waiting for the final flyover of the last flying Vulcan. If you peer very hard at the photo you will see a little speck that is the Vulcan. It did fly right over our heads but my camera makes it look like a gnat.
October also saw me doing a workshop with Mandy Pattullo at Stoke Rochford. Photos of Mandy's work.
November took us to Belton again for some leaf kicking,
While we were there we had news of a new great neice being born in Australia,
November also took me to Harrogate for the Knitting and Stitching Show where I was able to see the chess set that won at Festival of Quilts up close.
And finally, December! You must be exhausted if you've got this far. You'll be pleased to know that I've already told you about December and my weaving so you can now go and collapse into a glass of your favourite tipple.
May I wish you a very Happy and Healthy 2016 and leave you with a blessing that I borrowed from the internet.
