You know I didn't show any pictures of our time in New York . I can honestly say a good time was had by Sue and I. Apart from one day when we had to get the subway back to the Armoury building we walked our little legs off.
We went up the Empire State building, went to ground zero, walked through central park saw The Jersey Boys, went to the Algonguin Hotel for a cocktail and saw a million other things along the way - Even a Michael Jackson look alike performing in the street that entertained us for a while.
I was so pleased to meet up with Lori of Humble Quilts at the dinner at the Russian Tea rooms, she gave me a lovely little quilt that she had made especially for me. I have counted 35 different repro fabric in the one quilt. I love it and will treasure it. Thanks Lori.
At the dinner Mary Koval gave us all a fat quarter of her RED Baltimore Album range and Bev from Melbourne had made us all a lovely churn dash block RED and White of course.
I am so glad we had the opportunity to meet up with fellow bloggers and non bloggers. New friendships made and some old one's cemented.
We had a great time and would love to do it all over again but preferably when I have been in training for while.
Yesterday I went to church to hear Neil and Emily's banns read for their marriage on the 21st May.
I sobbed all the way up the church path and by the time Emily arrived I was sat outside an emotional wreck. Goodness knows what I am going to be like on the day. I am ordering a large box of tissue's and a beautician to touch up my make up. LOL
