Sample swaps for FQ Retreat…

30 May

This morning we had a a pre 6am wake up call from a small boy demanding ‘my cup, my cup’, fairly soon after followed by a sister claiming “I’m not tired” so rather than lie in bed and be irritated by 2 small children talking, kicking, wriggling and squabbling I went downstairs and got to work. Yep that is how much pressure I’m under, ask Tobit how keen I usually am to get out of bed in the morning and I’m sure he’ll tell you that 6am is a early start!

So yesterday I got to work on sample swaps, this morning I finished them – big, fat hurrah!

Don’t panic I do know that I only need to make 4 – once I get into the rhythm of making them it’s easy to make more, truth be told I made one a few weeks ago as a trial and so could have just make 3 this time, but I didn’t.

So I have a spare, I also have some none selvedge ones from stock that I could bring for ‘private’ swaps… let me know if you’re interested or seek me out at the weekend!

On to labelling 5 quilts for Siblings Together ready for a photo shoot.
