Sandown Quilt Show

Sadly Sandown was not as good for us this year as it was last year but we had a fun time and met some lovely people. They included the very talented Kim Shaw. If you get a chance to take a class with Kim then do so as her work is spectacular! I was also able to buy some lovely beads from Images of Egypt and some beautiful fabric and threads from Empress Mills. Our kits for making Crazy Patchwork Pouch bags sold out which was wonderful and has had me being very busy making more! I have lots of ideas for new Crazy Patchwork kits so watch this space. And our draw for a Tote bag made out of our mandala fabric was very successful. The winner was Julie Fieldsend and the bag will shortly be winging it's way to her. 

I made a large and a small grab bag. The jury is still out on whether or not I like them! :-)

We stayed on a lovely campsite just two miles from Sandown Race Course. It may have been so near but wasn't the easiest of places to find due to the one way system in Esher. However by the final night we had it off pat and arrived with no diversions! The campsite was by a river and I think we were the only people there...well we saw no-one else! Quiet and peaceful.

Our next big show will be Harrogate at the end of August but we are doing a one day outing at Stithians show on July 16th as I am judging there. Now we just need to prepare lots of new stock so it will be dyeing every day for a while!
