... and just in case you were worried about how quiet I was, the reason was the internet connection at the hotel. As I said in my last post, it was was broken, then it was fixed and we could all get online for the day. I don't know what happened, but overnight I lost access again and could not re-connect until I got home, although other people were able to. I could connect via my phone, but there was no way I was going to write blog posts using the phone.
Anyway, now we're safely home again, after a great 5 days.
Our days went rather like this:
Eat, walk, eat, sew. Repeat. I think the hotel proprietors were worried in case we felt hungry. The food was all superb and everything was home-made by a great chef. The walking was essential as a weight-limitation exercise, but I'm not sure it worked in my case. We were on the coast so the walks were along the seafront and as it was really outside the holiday season, it was all fairly quiet. Of course the walks may have included visits to the local quilt shop by some people.
Here we are, just a few hours into our five days, aren't we looking neat and tidy? That soon changed I can assure you, but no, there are no photos of the same areas later in the week.
As you can see, there were some very talented people making some wonderful quilts.
Of all the projects I took with me, several of them did not even make it out of their bags, but I did finish one quilt top, made some test blocks for some ideas I have for the future, and prepared the pieces for the blocks for another quilt.
By the end of the week, some people went home with completed projects, as you can see.
Scrappy decided to lay some blocks out on a bed, to see what they would like in a quilt. I felt she needed a glamorous assistant to show them off, but she didn't. Guess who won that battle?
It was a great week, thank you so much QuiltHaze for organising it. Now, what date is the next one?
