Lovely People

Sometimes life gives you a jolt.  This weekend was filled with those occasions.

Saturday Sharne and I went to Cottenham for our embroidery group,Fen Edge Textile  http://www.fenedgetextiles.co.uk/ 

Pauline our tutor, had made lovely mushroom soup for us all at lunch time, and a couple of girls had bought cakes because they had just had their birthday.  The girls there are so supportive and it is always a joy to meet up.

Pauline has given us some exciting ideas to work on, looking forward to Thursday evening when I might get some time to play with them.  But this is what we will be doing next session, newspaper, gesso and scrim – lovely…….

I have been getting myself in a little bit of a tiss about the talk that I am giving at the Quilters Guild Regional Day, not worried about the talk, but there are going to be quite a few people there, and my work at the moment is on the small side, so am concerned about people being able to see what I am talking about.  Pauline came to my rescue and has lent me her projector. I can now photograph my work and show it through the computer on a PowerPoint presentation so the images (hopefully) can been clearly seen by all.  I was quite taken back by this generous and kind offer.  It will make the talk a lot more interesting for every one.

Have had lots of phone calls from Kirsty this weekend, little Holly is poorly.  Would have liked to have been able to go up and help out.  But Kirtsy has kept me up to date with Holly’s progress and it now sounds like she is on the mend – fingers crossed.

Sunday, Mum, Mel, Rob and Mille came for Sunday lunch, Dad didn't feel up to joining us :-(

Had some lovely Mother’s day gifts, a basket of hyacinths from Mum and the new CD which is the follow up to the PhanIMG_6137tom of the Opera from Rob.

Had some wonderful smiles and gurgles form Millie.

And, this evening I have prepared my ‘microtech’ for Tuesday – the end is in sight……….

Tomorrow night is Embroiders Guild and Mary Sleigh – gosh I am looking forward to that.
