Art Quilting Studio Mag and christmas Shopping!

Just spent the day in Winchester Christmas market and managed to buy a few more presents.
Got home to find a copy of Art Quilting Studio Magazine with my article Beetles and pitcher Plants in. Not the Mag I had expected but even better. Going to see Blood Brothers this evening.

Basildon Guild and Canvey

Just got back from a good weekend with Mum on Canvey Island. She was better than I expected and managed to talk non stop for three hours on Sunday without loosing her voice! She also came with me when I gave my Embroidered bowls talk at Basildon Branch of the Embroiderers Guild and was made thoroughly welcome. They were a lovely bunch and also had visitors from other branches just come to hear my talk. Really looking forward to teaching them the bowls next year. Off ten pin bowling this afternoon with Sarah and Andy. At least I shall not bowl but will occupy Fraser while they bowl then going to Pizza Hut.
