The festival.....


Hello - sorry that I haven't blogged much this week - just a bit busy. Anyway at last we've had the festival and I think it went rather well. The first photo is of our raffle quilt. The second one is of the raffle cushions -the idea was you paid £1 and could pick 2 cushions as the ones you wanted to win and put your ticket in that bag. The final one is of Linda's quilt that won 3rd prize at Trentham.
I was really pleased that Jane (Sew create it) made the effort to come along and have a look. It was so nice to meet her at last.
I'll be able to update you all soon with how much we raised and where it's going to and why soon. But now I'm rather tired and also starving - we've succumbed to an Indian takeaway - naughty but nice.

Ohhh - just to let you all know Maggie Grey now has a blog - please have a look and keep an eye on it - I'm sure it'll be really good.

Thanks again for such a warm welcome. We (the family) really enjoyed the festival and I really liked the village...you are one lucky lady to live in such a beautiful place in the country. Hope to meet up again soon.

I love the idea of a pillow raffle...what a great idea! I chuckled when I read that 'you succumbed to an Indian takeaway"...in America , we call it 'take-out', so at first I thouht you had been kidnapped by Indians!
