Weekend at sandown quilt show

I have just been away for a fabulous weekend, with my sewing buddies, Freda and Burnice.

Friday 19th June
Here they are checking Burn's camera just as we arrived at our cottage in Shepperton. We stayed in a fabulous olde worlde cottage, with low ceilings and sloping, creaking floors!

Saturday 20th June
We went to Sandown Quilt Show, at the racecourse. Don't you just love the anticipation as you walk in to one of these shows!

I love this quilt, fabulous colours!

There was a competition for a sea-scene, and I took loads of close ups to inspire me in my sea-scene that I have already started!

Our cottage was right by the river, and we went for a little walk along to this lock to watch the canoeists!

Sunday 21st June
Here's a pic of our cottage.
