Quilt Festival

Hello, I hope you are having a lovely weekend.  The weather has been great hasn't it?
Yesterday at the stall I was pretty busy and managed to break my takings record.  I had lots of customers who all insisted on buying my lovely wool and accessories.  I even had one lady buy one of my handmade corsages.  It always makes my day when that happens.  To actually have people wanting to buy the things you have made is a very satisfying feeling.
Today has been great.  It has been the Bawtry and Austerfield Quilt Show these past three days and a good time has been had by all.  I volunteered to help in the kitchen for a couple of hours but ended up sat taking the money for the refreshments.  What a nice and easy job for such a hot and sticky day. 
At 2 0'clock we had a lunch of soup and sandwiches with orange squash to wash it all down.  Mmm lovely.
The quilts and other bits and bobs were hung in the two churches and they looked beautiful.
It must be great for our teacher Helen who runs all the classes where all these things were made. 
It never fails to amaze me just how many talented and creative people are out there beavering away.
And of course last but by no means least, my own contribution.  I also had a stool and a craft bag there too. No quilts though.
Unfortunately the brown cushion had the wrong label on it.  I think it must have been a bit late in the day when they got to mine or the label lady had had one too many lemonades.  Never mind.
Bye for now. Paula x

  1. Great that you had such a good day on the stall.
    That must be really encouraging and hopefully as the autumn and winter approaches even more people will be picking up their needles.
    Your two cushions are lovely.
