It’s been an interesting week!
It started with a little detour to the ER with Steve. He’s almost all better now and hopefully a little bit wiser… but it stopped me getting to my stitching for a day or so(!). I had plenty of non-stitchy things to do and Julia came to help, so by Thursday I was back on track and able to pack up the car as planned…
I headed South to Champaign-Urbana to the Illini Country Stitchers. What is it with these two name cities? They confuse me!
A two and a half hour drive through the flatlands of Illinois got me there and I found a happy bunch of quilters waiting for me.
Here’s one half of the gang, just before I started speaking.
The other half are today’s featured image at the top of the page. The fairy lights are a nice touch don’t you think?
After Lessons Learned while Quilting we had a short break before show and tell which took place down the other end of the hall. I was bit far away but you get the idea?
There were lots of super quilts on display, nearly all made for someone else, many for a philanthropic cause.
It was a lovely evening, after which I retired to my hotel to get ready for the next day.
Check back tomorrow for Friday’s fun workshop pictures…
