A lovely day sewing...

I've had a lovely day today sewing with the Rocheberie Schoolhouse Quilters. It's always nice to catch up with such lovely quilters and bloggers:
There was a great speaker as well - Gail Lawther. She described the influence her visits to New Zealand had had on her and also showed us the great work she'd produced. As you can see I just had to buy the book.
We were also very lucky as we got a Christmas pressie too - a charm pack of lovely fabrics. I'm afraid the cake we had didn't last long enough for me to take a photo of - but I can assure you it was very very nice (and a very generous slice it was too).
So all in all a great day. As you can see from the photos below there were lots of us there.

Whooosh talk about quick posting!!

I'm so glad you enjoyed the day. It was a bumper meeting and everyone seems to have really enjoyed themselves. Gail was lovely to listen too and her New Zealand talk was very inspiring.

Had to be quick with the posting as I had a my SIL and her boyfriend coming round for dinner.
It really was a great day.

I'm glad you enjoyed the day - I was pretty shattered afterwards, never seen it so busy but very 'buzzy' and enjoyable. I had to have that Gail Lowther book too!!

I was really impressed with Gail’s interpretation of what she'd seen in New Zealand - I might have to set our group a challenge for our exhibition in 2011. LOL they love it when I get mad ideas...
