My day began well. I met up with other sewists for the first meeting of the East Midlands Modern Quilt Guild. There were ten of us from across the East Midlands. We met in a pub on the edge of Nottingham for coffee (or tea) and cake as we started our inaugural meeting. Moira has been instrumental in getting this venture off the ground so it was very easy to vote on who we would like to be our president. Moira is now officially our leader! Yay! If you live in the East Midlands and would like to join us then this is our Flickr site.
I then went onto Grantham to visit Stitchcraft with Trudi. It was nice to have a little gleek at all the lovely fabric. When I got home the men were watching the rugby so I thought that I would do a little more quilting of this quilt.
Disaster has struck though. My feed dogs are stuck in the down position and no amount of tinkering has helped get the mechanism to work again. I was getting really hot and bothered as I am doing a sewing course next week and I need to take my machine up to Cumbria with me. My lovely hubby encouraged me to phone the man who mends sewing machines at 7.30pm tonight. After a complicated and long winded discussion, my machine will be left in his caravan tomorrow (it is a sort of postbox for sewing machines) and hopefully I can collect it on Tuesday, just in time for my journey north!!! So in the end, the problem is on the way to being solved. It just means that my quilt won't be finished this weekend.
Instead of sewing tonight, I have decided to have a bit of a swat up on what to use once Google Reader goes. I have decided to follow the crowd and move to Bloglovin'. If you want to follow this blog in Bloglovin' the link is here...
I have no idea if the link works, so if you try it, would you let me know if you were successful. Cheers!
Enjoy St Patrick's day tomorrow. We are partying with the local Irish exiles!
