A weekend summary

Firstly, I should tell you that I’m now going to be commenting on people’s blogs with Blogger. I’m a bit tired of people (not one specific person but I can think of at least 4) telling me I’m a “no reply” blogger, when I’m not, I just have an independently hosted blog and as such can only comment through OpenID with my Flickr account. My WordPress profile just doesn’t work anymore since the move to .com. Hopefully this will encourage more people to click on the “my website” link on my profile which takes you here. So there, sorted, lets move on.

Not everyone in this photo, but from L to R: Di, Liz A, Trudi, Jackie and Tanya

My little empire…

On Saturday it was the next meet up of the East Midlands Modern Quilt Guild. We met up at Stitchcraft in Grantham to make quilt as you go Weekender bags. Here’s how far I got with mine (oh and I’ve got piping made too)…

Di finished hers- see here!
If you fancy making a bag like this (this is Mandy’s finished one)…

Then Mandy will be teaching this at Stitchcraft as a workshop, I’m not exactly sure of the date as it’s such new news that it’s not on the Workshops page yet,  so you might need to drop her a line, she’s on Twitter- @madewithlovebym.

On Sunday I got my act together and tidied up. So my fabric now looks like this. Seriously no room for any more!

I can’t get my precuts and big bits of fabric shelf any tidier though because I’m having to cram it full…

And Wallander is now two columns, yey!

Lastly, don’t forget the Quilt and Stitch Village show at Uttoxeter racecourse this weekend, my Fryed Pixels quilt will be there along with over 100 others (so I hear) so it should be a good day out! I will be there on the Sunday 🙂
