Not on their website yet but exhibitors have been informed.

ETA - the message to exhibitors said postponed, but the email I received about stewarding says cancelled. 

I'm really struggling with this today.  Quarantine brain.   ><

A very happy birthday to


We're all celebrating with you (from a safe distance)

(I'm watching Bugsy Malone now.  I love that film.  Thanks, @Tallulah57 )

Good morning

I didn’t change my name when I got married.  Mr P’s name is simple (one syllable) but quite unusual so he always has to spell it.  My name is more common but has two spellings so I say “with an ‘e’.  If I could change my first name, I would, of course, choose ‘Pearl’. 

It’s still dark but the weather forecast is warmer and brighter than yesterday so Mr P and I will be working in the garden.  I hope to get back to my scraps.

Have a good day, all.

Gosh I didn't realise that there was a special day for no housework, if this means every other day is a housework day, I am guilty of flouting this rule many many times!  0_0

I’m sure it doesn’t work like that, @justpottering .  After all, you don’t have to wait for World Book Day to read.   ;)

I have been working on my scrappy thing all morning and have just decided that I don’t like it.  (It’s too scrappy, lol.). I’m going to unpick all that I have done today.   :(

But first I’m going to have a shower, get dressed and have my breakfast. 

Have a good day, all.  Stay in safe.

One 4.5” square for centre

Four rectangles 4.5” x 2.5” in each of four colours (sixteen rectangles in all)

Make flying geese.  Sew them in pairs.  Arrange them around the centre square so that it looks like Imi’s, or in my case, the opposite way round! 

This is SOOOOO beautiful.  I love it.  So many gorgeous fabrics so beautifully combined.

If FOQ goes ahead, I’m going to kidnap you to be my personal shopper.

Do you have a link for the method you liked, please, @snoozi soozi ?

Not the warm, sunny weather we’d been promised but Mr P and I have sorted out the shed and what used to be the boot room.  Now he’s hanging the washing out, while I’m sitting on the sofa wondering when I can have a  :toast:

 <3 to those who have lost someone.  Congrats @fajita and Mr F.

Have a good day, all.

I look forward to seeing your pics, @Missie .

If you’re blocks are the same size, do you need to adjust your seams?  Consistency is the thing.
