Obviously I already knew that from blogging with you all, but it was lovely to chat for real and to meet new quilting-mad friends!

It was also a useful way to get feedback on our new homewares products. The most popular pattern range amongst customers seems to be the 'Right Hand of Friendship' items, which is also the case for the handmade pottery. That is surely because quilters are such a thoughtful, friendly bunch of people and the sentiment strikes a chord with them.

But now, I have to put my pottery hat on for a few weeks, (do potters wear hats??), to catch up with a backlog of orders from some very patient people! Some of my bowls were seen at the recent Loch Lomond Quilt Show, and as a result, a flurry of orders has come in from north of the border! And I have also been asked to work on a very special project, which I am seriously excited about, but which will have to wait til another blog post!
