QuiltCon here I come!

Yes, it’s nearly time, yay!

I have been spending the morning getting my stuff together. A book and some hand stitching for the flight.


All of the cables and adaptors for camera, laptop and phone. A few copies of Popular Patchwork magazine for friends in the US. Tea bags – of course.
Clothes………………… apparently the forecast is 26 degrees C tomorrow – yes I checked it wasn’t F. So clothes have been in and out of the case as I can’t imagine what the weather has in store.


I’m so looking forward to seeing some amazing modern quilts, catching up with friends and exploring a part of the US I haven’t been to before. Exciting!!! Oooh and I might buy some fabric 😉 …. leaving some room in my case!

I’ll try and send a few pics on Instagram as the week progresses – wifi permitting

(see box at bottom right of this blog)

Maybe I’ll see some of you there

    And I’m looking forward to spring quilting exhibition in Harrogate at the same time. And yes, I’ve been to Savannah and LOVED it. A gorgeous place! Have a wonderful time!

    Hand stitching? Will you get away with that, given that I guess it involves sharp needles?

      Only one very unsharp needle and Christmas cracker scissors for the plane Malcolm. Backup sewing kit safely stowed in my case 🙂

    Enjoy! You’ll love Savannah – a truly special city – a little bit Southern, a little bit mysterious and a little bit silly. Perfect! Do send pictures of the show as you can – will be great to be there vicariously.

      Loved it – such a lovely laid back, gentle place – and the sun was out! X

    “might buy some fabric” – hahaha!

    I’ve just stumbled on your blog, and that made me laugh.
