1 week to go…

Fat Quarterly
Yay! Only 1 week to go till I am with my fellow quilty friends in London.
Lynne @LilysQuilts, who is hosting the lnky party over the FQ blog, posted  a photo of herself on her blog…. Well! Not me! I just don’t like having my photo taken; I can just about stand having it taken for passports and work ID badges.
I have been doing patchwork/quilting since the late ’90s, but ended up on hiatus due to a full time job at a local city council. But due to issues at work last year, I was at home for nearly a month and was looking for something to do that I could put down & pick up without losing my place, unlike knitting or cross-stitch. And over the lasat year I have completed 3 unfinished tops: one of which is now a completed quilt, another is being quilted and one waiting to be quilted.
What you don’t know about, unless you dig around in the older posts, is that although I do have a sewing machine (a basic Toyota machine that cost me £20 from Argos!) I piece, quilt & bind  by hand.  I can’t really explain why I do it, but I really enjoy the slowness of it.  I am self-taught from books & magazines regarding the quilting/binding bit,  but EPP (English Paper Piecing) is not that hard to do.
I will be bringing Autumn Waterfall & Diamonds in the Sky for show and tell.
