Flying high after my first quilt show

I’m back from having traded at our first quilt show and I’m still on a high!

We had 3 great days at the Grosvenor Spring Quilt Festival at Ingliston, Edinburgh meeting and talking to some really lovely people out there, and especially receiving feedback of having some stunning fabrics just endorsed the very reason for starting my own business – my love of fabrics, the colour palettes, the designs and collections. I’ll be back for the Scottish Quilt Championships at Ingliston in September.

Meanwhile, we’re just a couple of weeks away for our next pop-up shop in Biggar (13/14 March) – more details on this and other dates will be added to the website very soon – promise. I’ve got a couple of meetings today, one of which is with another important man in my (business) life. I might mention Andrew quite a few times from this point onwards – he’s a guy who is helping me and holding my hand in getting the Biggar Stitches show on the road! I have a head full of ideas and he’s the one helping me bring them to fruition. So no sewing for me today – it’ll be a day of talking and emptying my head of these ideas. And as soon as I can share them with you, you lovely folk will be the next to know about them.

Sue's birthday present - 2015 Terry's birthday present By the way, I’m doing good on my mission of giving up procrastinating for Lent – I’ve made two bags, each for some friends’ (Terry and Sue) birthdays. You like? Other things you’ll soon know about me is my other passion for horses, and I share this passion with my friend Sue. It’s been a while – 10 years to be precise – since I’ve regularly sat in a saddle and said giddy up, and I’ve got just over 6 months to get my body ready for a week’s ranch riding in South Africa with Sue hence the horse riding themed bag. As for my gorgeous friend Terry – some of you will know her – well it was a no-brainer to select these beautiful fabrics for such a beautiful lady.

So how are you guys doing on each of your own ‘giving it up for Lent’?
