How strange that you replied!
I thought about you yesterday as I nearly didn’t get to the show, because one thing after another went wrong.
At one point I sat on the floor outside the NEC and wiped the sweat off my face, and lo and behold a lovely man came and put my scooter together for me when I got there. I am learning to accept help amd be really grateful. All the scooters had been booked out, so it was cheaper to take my own but I’ve always had my husband to set it up previously and I didn’t realise I wouldn’t have the strength.
My friend is into quilting and as you say, I need to think about new interests and I used to be really creative before I got enmeshed in work and family. (like 25 yrs ago)
Poll it was breathtaking. I was like a small kid, spinning 3 point turns to get closer to everything.
I spent a flaming fortune on the most fabulous exotic patching fabric (and I was restrained) I was surprised how hepful the stall holders were, lots of them hold craft days with disabled access. So I hope to try fabric painting in the near future.
I like the thought of starting with a lap quilt as I seem to do a lot of snuggling these days. I think it may be an achievable place to start…but I am dreaming of gold and cream quilts now, and wondering what yours looks like. I am excited that you only started quilting last year and yet you have achieved so much already.
I’m still totally done in after yesterday, I’ve never spent so much time on my scooter and I’m very sore now…but my dreaming is so colourful, and bright. I deffo feel a spark Poll xx
