What a ‘Bloomin’ lovely way to start my leave.

I have the next week off work, yippee.  Tomorrow Sharne and I are off the the Festival of Quilts

But today we were invited to the launch of O2’s exhibition and it was truly excellent.

Bloomin Marvelous

It was at Hyde Hall and you need to pay the normal entrance fee to the gardens but the exhibition alone would be worth the £7.  It feels a little unreal that Sharne and I are invited to these prestigious events, we both feel very privileged.  There are so many lovely sharing people that we have both meet through textiles, we are grateful to be part of it .

These are just a few pictures of their work, they have also produced a very comprehensive catalogue with full colour photographs of their work.

Very professional and they have sent the bench mark very high for the rest of us to try and achieve.

Lovely exhibition – Well done to all of O2
