A wonderful weekend and thank you!

I have just got back from the most wonderful weekend.  Two fabulous Gail Pan workshops and an evening trunk show! It was fabulous....!!  I have had a long drive back today, so I have not had time to sort through all the photographs that I took but, I thought you might like a quick peek at a couple....



A display of Gail's beautiful quilts. They were so lovely in 'real life' and, I might have bought one or two patterns *wink* !!




I made some new quilting friends... we had a lot of fun and somehow or other Gail called our table the 'naughty' table... I don't really understand why but there was a lot of laughter from our corner!!  It was lovely to get to know you Wendy, Jill and Lynda!

Thank you all for your lovely 'lucky' comments on my giveaway post.  I have closed the giveaway now and will be reading through them all. Then I will put all the names into a hat to draw the lucky winner.  I will announce the winner on Wednesday, when I will be back to tell you more about my wonderful weekend!



Gail was travelling back to Australia today, so I would like to say a big 'THANK YOU' to her for a wonderful weekend and I hope that her flight was a good one!


I should also add a big 'THANK YOU' to Karen of Patchwork Chicks and the other members of her team who organised the workshops and made it such a lovely occasion.
