An update after my short absence...........

Well, it has been an interesting month since my last post.  My sister Christine passed away after complications with Kidney  and other organ failure due to Type1 Diabetes.  It was a very sad and stressful time for my family as Mr J and I were getting ready to go on holidays. There was a lot of organizing to have the funeral before we left on the Friday, and mixed emotions when we caught the plane on Sunday morning (Mothers day).
Mr J and I flew to New York to start our months holiday, what a fantastic city. We had a hotel booked in 49th Street just around the corner of Time Square.  You can have a look at our Travel blog (link on this Blog page) for more info and photos and posts .
We caught a train to Lancaster to spend 4 days at Intercourse also known as Crossed Keys. I have a couple of photos of some Patchwork and Quilting Shops to tease you. All the shops are within 8km of each other.

Will catch up with more photos when we return home.

Until then Cathy

Quota Quilt Show

I went to the quilt show yesterday with Sandra yesterday, it was nice to catch up with friends and see all the beautiful quilts on display. I was very disappointed to see my quilt Featherwood Forest just folded over a chair. A couple of friends said they had walked around the hall looking for my quilt. It just proves that what I thought looked pretty good was very ordinary to others. I didn't even take a photo of my quilt.
