Yesterday...

Susan has already posted about the wonderful time had by Brit Bee and friends yesterday, but that's no reason why I can't too, nor steal her pictures!

I had a very long day; up before 6am to get the 7.23am train to London, Tube across town, then onwards to Banbury to be met by our lovely hostess.


There was non-stop laughter and chatter the whole time, with added fine dining and fabric thrown into the mix...


It was another super day with so many wonderful people...

Yes I am in the photo, and yes I did wear the ER Staple Dress xxx Photo c/o Susan.
Thank you again Susan for letting us descend en masse, and to everyone-else who made such yummy treats, (the train journey spared you my culinary skills), and to one and all, thank you for another bunch of special memories.  To those Brit Bees who couldn't make it, you were dearly missed and in out thoughts xxx

Sadly I had to leave relatively early in order to get all the connecting trains home again before I turned into a pumpkin, but I did manage a little hexie action on route though, and hopefully I will be able to show you the end result tomorrow.


I probably spent too much time in the sun today recovering, so I am zonked.  I would love to have the energy to give a blow by blow account, but you honestly would be so jealous, it is probably best all round if I just shush now and get an early night!

  19. Yes you're right, I would be jealous. You are lucky to be friends with quilters of similar age and situation, who live close enough to meet. I've tried many groups and I've always been the youngest by about 25 years with small kids, and not retired and travelling Australia in my caravan. The other issue in Australia is distance, plenty of younger sewers but not necessarily close enough for a day trip.
