You may remember, I've had my Tickets for the Festival of Quilts booked since the day they went on sale. I was so quick off the mark Mum and I had ticket numbers 97 and 98 I think!
Yesterday was the big day, we were up with the birdies and off to Birminghams NEC.
While we were queueing to get in I thought I saw a face I recognised away over on the other side of the queue. Hmmmm.........
The quilts as always were stunning. I took loads of pictures, but I'll just show you my absolute faves.
I voted him as my best in show. :-)*
'Harvey' By Abbieanne Searle. Was made in memory of a dear friend, who used to breed colourful fighting fish.
Again my camera skills don't do Harvey any favours, he's so much prettier in real life.*
'Flowers of Kalocsa' By Ilona Tornyal of Hungary. If you know me at all, you know I'm a sucker for a blue and white quilt.
So after taking in about half of the quilts mum and I ventured in to the vendors area. She was looking for more animal panels. It seems I still have more to do for her! I was looking through some panels when a voice asked if she could squeeze through please. No problem, I stepped back out of the way and looked up to see that face again! I was right, the face belonged to our very own Lynda of Master of Patience.
We chatted for just a few moments and Lynda's friend kindly took both of our cameras in order to record the moment. It was a lovely surprise to meet someone I 'know'.
