And what is the best thing to do on such a day?
Head over to http://www.tricoletteyarns.com/ for another London Modern Quilt Guild meeting. We had another great turn out and it was lovely to welcome Atia, our newest member who blogs at http://basmatiblogs.wordpress.com.
Pennie from http://tuppencehapennyquilts.blogspot.com/ had promised a surprise and although she turned up with fantastic chocolate brownies and lemon cake that wasn't the surprise. It was more exciting than the brownies, she had Aneela Hoey in tow, http://comfortstitching.typepad.co.uk/!
Our first guest at our guild meetings. She was lovely and put up with us all behaving a bit shocked, giggly and fangirlish but we were all so taken aback. Thank you Aneela for taking the time to come and visit with us. we are a proper guild now!
I also did some more shopping and ended up with these two lovely fabrics. I've been trying to explore other colour options rather than my favourite green, but on a sunny spring day the green called to me and I couldn't resist these two from Amy Butler and Tina Givens.
