Hi there, last Sunday I went to see the Quilts in the Barn exhibition in Wonga Park with a couple of my patchwork friends. Here is Susan, taking a photo of me taking a photo of her. I won't show any more photos of the quilt show cause the Quilts in the Barn blog has photos of the whole exhibit. I have been going to this exhibition for quite a few years, its always an enjoyable day out and Linda and her helpers put a lot of work into making it a great show.
We went to The Patchwork Teahouse
in Warburton next and had a really lovely lunch. We had a really nice day even though we discovered our favourite antique/homewares shop had closed down.
I have been busting to use my kitchen table but my son has been using it to study for his exams. He does have a desk in his bedroom which he can't use at the moment cause its covered in clothes etc. What is it with teenage boys and messy bedrooms? We have endless discussions about tidying his room, its like beating my head against a brick wall...
I've tried being patient but I keep thinking about all the things I can't do till I get my table back. Today I decided to get out my fold up trestle table and take it outside to work on.
It was great, now that the weather is improving I might do this more often. I wanted to work out the applique borders for my Jubilee quilt and the trestle table was perfect for this. I couldn't pin my vines down until I drew out my applique shapes but at least I got a start on it.
Why couldn't I do this on my own sewing room table you might ask? Cause it's covered in too much stuff!!!
Its time all us night owls were in bed.
Bye for now.
