Festival of Quilts

Had a fabulous day at the Festival of Quilts today with Maggi. Met up with the lovely Julie , drooled over the most amazing artwork, attended a brilliant lecture by Maggie Grey and spent quite a bit of money (more pics to come tomorrow). I'm off to bed now...... :-)
A sample of some of the delights on display.......

Didn't we have a lovely chat! It was great to meet both you and Maggi. I've downloaded Photoscape and had a little play and it looks like a very useful programme. Thank you for telling me about it. xx

A very belated Happy Birthday, Linda. I LOVE your macro photos, especially the one that looks beaded. Sounds like that quilt show was very inspirational!

Heather said...

I just popped back to thank you for your very nice comment on my blog. Enjoy your embroidery course - I have a three way challenge with drawing, photography and computer skills all needed for the Sketchbook course! It'll certainly keep me occupied.
