Looking ahead ... Let's start sewing

I'm just back from selling some of my beloved quilts and textiles at a lovely fair in the Cotswolds. Such a beautiful place near Stow on the Wold and Burford. We had a 2.5 hour journey which wasn't too bad but the  wind was awful and we missed a falling tree within an hour of passing it eek.Thankfully no one was hurt.
There were quite a selection of lovely stalls there, a few of my most favourites who feature at fairs near to my home town. So I felt in very good company.

The Cotwolds is definitely quilt country, such lovely people came and visited my stall and they certainly love quilts like I do.

It was just lovely to find  so many people that are as enthusiastic as me for scraps and love to sew. I had a few quilt scraps and remnants which went done very well, and my last 2 remaining sample quilt bags that I have been coveting for a few years were snapped up within seconds of each other. I thought it's time to let them go ( I've been saying that about a lot of things really).
So it's goodbye to my heart bag, but I'm off to make some updated versions and maybe one for me.
While I'm at my old faithful sewing machine I need get ready for Christmas. Yes I said it. But fail to prepare, prepare to fail.
