PIF Gifts and Parcels

I'm very pleased to say my Pay It Forward gifts are in the post! So get ready Sue, Nicky and Linda! I hope you like them :o) I'll post pictures after I know they have been received, I don't want to spoil the surprise.

On Saturday I attended a Quilters Guild Region 10 Area Day at a fabulous village hall in Waltham on the Wolds near Melton Mowbray. There was a talk by Elizabeth Brimelow on 'Why Textiles' which was extremely inspiring. Elizabeth is a member of the 'Art Quilts' group, 20 European quilters who exhibit their work all over the world. Her quilts were fantastic! And I have to say the slide show did not do them justice, we were lucky enough to get up close and personal with some of her quilts, sketch books and even a work in progress. Do go and look at her website. I'm afraid I failed completely with photo's, despite the camera being in my bag! Ooops!

Whilst I was out the post man called and left a great little parcel of loveliness!

I'm not really into bags, but I've been eying this one up on the web for some time. Lets see how long it takes me to make one up, you never know, I may get hooked!

I have some finishes from last week to show you too! But they'll have to wait till next time!
Happy Quilting!

Hi Trudi!!! The PIF parcel came today and I was SOOOOO excited to see the beautiful table runner you made me. The colors are wonderful and it will look so darn good in my front room. Thank you, thank you, thank you! When people ask about it, I will direct them to your blog! Thanks again!! Merry Christmas.
