Too tired for words.

Seriously.  Am broken...  Am taking a few days off....  Didnt meet everyone I wanted to, definitely didnt talk enough to those I did meet... Everyone so very lovely...Brit bee mates amazing beyond words...
Thank you Fat Quarterly team for a brilliant event xxx

Mental bee-ast quilt, as promised...  Lynne (OMG LYNNE FROM LILYS QUILTS!!!!) liked it!  (yes chickened out from going and saying hello to Katy Jones but I'm sure she can live without short fat nutter doing goldfish impression before saying "you're brilliant" too many times...)

Lynne and Laura with mental Beeast in London






I got to meet Jack... and had to save him from drowning in the mental beeast...

Elliecat has been makin mischief...

Last pic from the weekend....

Rhonda... how could you not be impressed with wee Jack?!  He's lovely...

and since I said it so much over the weekend I'll say it one more time...
"where's Emily?"  she's with Lucy  "Where's Lucy?"  she's with Emily...

"weren't Emily and Lucy meant to be at dinner?"  they were Sarah, they were at the other end of the table...  "S***!  Where's Emily and Lucy now?"  dunno....

  2. Yes, rest up and take care! I love that quilt and must show my sister in law the pic of the quilt co-ordinating so well on the Barclays bikes as she's Head of Incentive and Recognition with Barclays.

  9. Must have been a group think panic on the hair. I ended up colouring mine on the Saturday morning while I was packing!! LOL I also had a bit of anxiety about going but managed to get myself there (second day was really touch & go)
    So glad you got to make it for at least a day but really sorry to have missed meeting you in person.
    I saw your quilt but did not realise it was yours - I love it!!
    I am like Shevvy - don't have many photos to show but loads of good memories. Lynn was lovely, as was everyone I met. Enjoy your rest.
    Can't wait till next years!!

  19. That quilt is mental brilliant! Knew you'd have a great time. Remember : after the quilting convention is before the quilting convention. (slightly adapted German saying). Have a well deserved rest now!

  21. Hello lovely, I hope you are getting the rest you need, and that cat of yours is making you tea and scones...
    Did I mention that I think your quilt is overwhelmingly brilliant? - Seriously, you are a creative genius, now don't forget that (said in my best bossy voice), and seriously think about making a little bit of fabric money from selling your makes :D xx

  22. I've been waiting for this post :)
    The mental bee-ast is great and after spying you on some photos I can say with all authority that I love your hair too.

  24. Sorry I didn't get to meet you....didn't realize you weren't going to be there on Sunday or I would have tried harder on Saturday! Oh ....and I got to sit with Emily and Lucy at dinner (and a good laugh was had by all!). Hope you're feeling a bit rested and SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!!!

  27. I hope you're still resting my friend. I'm mentally exhausted and spent. I don't know how you did it! Was so great to see that Bee-assed quilt, what a monster, and what a fantastic way to piece it together. Xox

  29. Totally laughing at that last bit! I'm obviously wiped too, as it's taken me 2 days to read up this far, but hey, at least we've been able to plot in the meantime, and Jack can have a WHOLE new adventure :oD
