Sandown show and a quilt on show

We are slowly recovering from a very busy weekend at Sandown Quilt show....such a lot of lovely people to meet and chat to and lots of wonderful fabrics and quilts to see.

My stand looked very colourful and bright...I had been very busy sewing and quilting before the show in order to highlight my collection of fabrics and my chicken quilt was completed too...pattern on its way!  Mr RC was with me all weekend, which was lovely!!  However, preparing and packing takes its toll and we felt like we had jet lag at the end of the four days!! 
Another bit of excitement was seeing Susan Briscoe again...last year, at the same show I was asked by Susan to quilt one of her lovely Japanese quilts for a book.  The quilt was then chosen for the front cover of her book Japanese Inspirations...and my name is in print!!  Very exciting.

The two woolly monsters were none to impressed upon being left behind, but have been rewarded by long walks on our return home!!  Daughters had to babysit!!
I am back to quilting up in my studio now and there is much to do, including a couple of days teaching ahead.  The dust is still gathering and the garden needs lots of attention...failing miserably in most of these tasks!  How do some people seem so organised??  Not me.....
