I made the trip up to Birmingham yesterday for the FoQ and once again I came away tired but happy!
My spending was fairly restrained for once, but only because I blew my fabric budget earlier on in the month with some Melody Miller and Tricolette's closing down sale.
So I got the basics....
and then to the Backstitch stand, where despite forgetting my 10% voucher the lovely Alice still honoured it!
|Klona bundle that I have been eyeing up for months!!|
The first person I bumped into was the lovely Laura Jane from Needles, pins and baking tins, who was glamming up the Sizzix stand big time.
|Laura and a corner of Hadleys quilt!|
I also bumped into Charlotte, Amy, Lucie Summers, Brioni and Tula Pink no less! Now that's name dropping for ya ;-)
I have to confess that I don't spend an awful lot of time looking at the quilts on display, but I am told there were some stunners there. There was one that I absolutely loved, hanging by a shop I can't remember the name of. It was made out of hundreds of tiny log cabin pin cushions all strung together.....
So now all I have left to work is one 12 hour night shift tonight and I am on holiday for two weeks, bliss!
