Quilting Open Day

We had a great day yesterday at our Open Quilting Day and hopefully we've got a few new members - we'll have to wait and see.
I'm sorry to say I forgot to take any pictures - although I did have my camera in my bag. The day was very relaxed and we just sat and chatted to all the visitors about what we did and about the samples we'd taken and what we were working on. I'd taken my free machine embroidery samples, the new Sunburst quilt and my raggy cushion. Barry was working on his applique and the rest were at various stages of cutting, binding and making up blocks and adding them to their sticky sheet. I think between us we had all stages of quilting covered.
Everyone was asked to bring along cake - and it was all very, very nice. Unfortunately it didn't all go so DH had to have some when he got home - he thought it was all very good too.
A great day - but boy was I shattered when I got home.

Sorry I didn't make it to your open day..things around the house (chores) got the better of me and before I knew it the day was gone. Hopefully we can catch up soon..perhaps for coffee at the Heart of the Shires or something. Just let me know when you are heading this way. TTFN :o)

Sounds like you had a good day! Sometimes we just have to go and "live" the moment, instead of worrying about taking pictures.
