FQ Linky Party

Fat Quarterly

Only two days to go…in fact in two days time I’ll be sitting in the plane to London and the Fat Quarterly Retreat. This thought makes me so insanely happy that I almost can’t believe it’s true.

Having been away last weekend, coming home to slight chaos and lots to do, I’m all a bit at sixes and sevens. Thankfully I put supplies in jiffy bags for some of the classes last week – which I’m now really happy about, and my chocolate contribution and my swap notebooks are packed, but everything else….phah….not a clue….but by Friday morning I will be packed and I will be on the train and then the plane and then the train and then…..aaahhh…4 days in London doing what I want to do. AAAMMMMAAAAZING!

For those stopping by from the linky party who don’t know me, this is me…..

I’m a 48 year old English mother to 3 teenagers and wife of a zillion years to my rather nice Swiss husband. I’ve lived in Switzerland since 1991 and before that was in San Francisco, but deep in my heart of hearts I’ll always be a Geordie!

I have my own business and work as a translator and editor (German/English) part-time, do tons of sport, and sew to keep me sane. I started my first quilt at age 13 and quilting, knitting and sewing have been pretty much constants in my life ever since. I spend a lot of time just stroking my fabric stash and dreaming about living till I’m 200 to use it all up!

I won’t have met anyone coming to the retreat in the flesh before, but feel like I’m coming over to see friends – Quiltova is staying at a B&B with me and most of the girlies from the Stitch Tease bee will be there along with some lovely blog buddies.

Can’t wait till the weekend – see you there!
