|Maggie Grey and Fiona Edwards|
Maggie and I were demonstrating at each end of the booth and Fiona was busy in the middle with subscriptions and book sales.
I had some lovely visitors and comments and my friend Jan Daly, who is local to Exeter, popped by with much needed refreshments!! I also had one of those surreal moments when a face appeared in front of me and I knew I knew it but it wasn't supposed to be there. The very lovely Shirley from Stitcherydo also came down to say hello. After being blogging friends for must be at least 6 or so years, we finally met face to face!
All back home and unpacked now. It took a couple of days to get over the withdrawal. I was honestly fed up with the sound of my voice by the end of it all but miss being surrounded by so many creative people of all levels and disciplines. Food for the soul.
I did have a massive lightbulb moment 2am Saturday morning. Caroline and Karren had asked if I wanted to put a piece in the window for our CAKE show next month. After watching DMTV recently and Linda's porthole technique I realised I could use that with a slight twist and some glorious hand dyed fabrics from Farne who had a stall just around the corner from us, I could make a piece for the awkward position of the window.
It's virtually made itself so far. Just a few more seams to hand stitch and then some added stitch to the surface. Should keep me quiet for a while!
Have a great weekend.
