Hello my lovelies. I hope you’re all enjoying a productive time. Things are pretty busy here at happy stitching manor. I have been working quietly behind the scenes on my latest creation. I must admit that I have absolutely and thoroughly enjoyed every single minute of my creativity. I think this project is the best I have created so far. I can’t wait to share How Does Your Garden Grow. So, watch this space.
I’ve popped in today because I have once again been offered free passes to attend The Festival of Quilts this year. However, due to previous commitments, I will not be attending this time but the good organizers of the festival have set aside 5 pairs of day tickets for me to giveaway. The show runs from August 1st to the 4th. I think it’s going to be a great show. There’s always loads of beautiful quilts
to see and the wonderful Jenny Doan of the Missouri Star Quilt Company will be in attendance. I would love to attend one of her lectures. Jenny’s story of how she got involved in the patchwork scene is a very interesting and inspirational one.
As well as Jenny, there are oodles of super vendors selling things that you cannot live without!!! I always look at the tools and gadgets carefully. Attending The Festival of Quilts is always an adventure for me. Things change from one year to the next, including the roads! I always manage to get lost but that’s all part of the rich tapestry of life.
So, let’s get down to the nitty gritty. If you live in the UK and you are planning on going to The Festival of Quilts enter my giveaway draw. It’s quite simple, all I ask is that you tell me what patchwork technique you enjoy the most (pieced blocks, appliqué block, strip patchwork, freemotion machine quilting etc) your name, and what town and county you live in. You can do all this in a comment. Click comments at the top of the screen, scroll down and enter your info in the comment box. Come along ladies, step right up and bag yourself a free pair of day tickets for The Festival of Quilts. You know you want to. The draw will close on June 27th. Good luck everyone.
So, that’s my news for today. I will be back soon with some progress news. I have loads to share with you but I really want to make a little more progress before the big reveal. I hope you all have a super cosy evening doing something you truly enjoy. Until next time,
Let’s all keep on stitching.
