I have just come back from the Pour L'armour dul Fils in Nantes with my PIC Sue .

I couldn't believe how small the plane was but even smaller was the room at the hotel with a glass shower room- thankfully it had a modesty curtain that you pulled round it.

We meet up with friends from around the world again some of which we hadn't seen since the Infinite Variety of Red and White quilts in NYC last year and had a lovely dinner together on Wednesday evening. I don't know how we do it but we always seem to be the noisiest group in the restaurant. It was a fun night  and few days.

Going to leave you with photos taken over the last few days.

Sorry for any peculiar order that this has posted in but blogger had crashed 3 times on me. What is it with me and blogger I feel totally frustrated with how it works now. If it isn't broken blogger why do you keep messing about with it
Very odd to have a glass shower in the corner of 
the room but hey ho we were in France !

Brown and Pink

A couple of weeks ago I did a  show and tell  for a quilt group who had asked to see my quilts. So before  I packed them away I took a few photo's as they might not see the light of day for a while again.

I love quilts with brown in them and this has rather a lot of brown  with  double pink.

Isn't it nice to get your quilts out from time to time and just look at them and see them with a fresh eye.
Pauline who asked me to do the talk took lots of photos and it's nice for me to see them from a distance. Sometimes that's the best way to view them LOL .

When Pauline asked me to do this talk a year ago  for Poppy Down Quilters I thought OK-  small quilt group 20 people- no problem. Then the week before she told me they had sold 120 tickets and did I need a microphone. At this point I nearly died and had some sleepless nights in the run up to it. Thankfully it seemed to go well . So thank you ladies for being so appreciative and making the day fun.
Happy Easter to you all
