Well, I've finally arrived in blogaverse. The pressure got way too much over this last weekend at the fantabadoozalistic Fat Quarterly Retreat. The lovely Laura gave me some instructions on how to manage a blog with an iPad. So here we go.
First up for this blog is to introduce you all to the fab bunch that is the Brit Bee. I have been overwhelmed by their friendship and support over this last year of cancer treatment. What could have been a pretty grim time was always lightened by their comments and innuendos, and to keep me toasty warm when my hair vanished they made me the most amazing quilt.
Each time I tell the story of how this quilt came to be, fills my eyes with tears, my throat with a lump and my heart so full of gratitude To be blessed by the generosity and friendship of what were strangers all flung together, to the friendships I share with these women. They are awesome indeed.
Wanna see my mega quilt, affectionately known as Project 51? Here it is, with the fabulous women who made it
It was such a buzz to finally meet up with them all. I had already met Ceri, Judith, Trudi, Hadley, and had met Sarah through Skype. So meeting Belfast Judith, Jennie, Laura, Fiona, Susan and Jo was the cherry on top of the cupcake.
I felt that if I were going to blog properly (ahem) I had to blame it on these ladies if ever I stuff up. Just so you know, I take no responsibility for what I write, they have to, because if it were not for them, I wouldn't be blogging away. Are we clear on that? So don't write cranky emails to me if my pictures aren't perfect, or my grammar isn't correct, or I don't post very often. All the blame must be put firmly on their shoulders.
See you all again soon if this works!
Thanks for peeking
