Yes I am still here!

I haven't blogged for a long time and unfortunately I haven't sewed in quite a while either.  So this post is simply my better late than never link up post for the Fat Quarterly Retreat in London.

I have been scanning through all the lovely posts this morning and there are lots of pictures of all the preparation that has been going on and the lovely things people have made for sample swap, gorgeous name tags and handmade pouches.  I have no such photos to show you.  My preparation started at 9pm last night, involved a glass of wine, a list and a lot of tweeting.

FQ Retreat prep

I am 30, live in Bath and when I'm not quilting I am a solicitor!   I started quilting when I finished studying 3 years ago as I didn't know what to do with my free time.  It has been pointed out to me that there are no photos of me anywhere on here and in fact even my name isn't on this blog. Sorry to disappoint but I am not a secret quilting celebrity!   As I don't have a name tag for the weekend I suppose I had better tell you my name and post a photo or people may think I just wondered in off the street to the Retreat by accident.

So here I am


Ok my train leaves in half an hour so I need to go!  I will be tweeting @scissorsandthread and posting pictures on Instagram @scissorsandthread  See you in London!
