Eat my thread dust

Its the end of january so it must be Gartmore time!! Woo hoo! The quilty chums reunite. Its just like coming home.

It has now become traditional for Ruth and i to do a twin pattern. After last years seahorse we decided to go for tartankiwis peacock. I went with my usual ‘in yer face’ colour and pattern palette 😂😂 Ruth went for lovely graphic solids.
Lovely mash up!
Now lets see the proper peacocks
Mine is called Priscilla, i did find out that peacocks (clue is in the name ...) are male but i think Priscilla is in tune with all sides of her sexuality thank you very much!
Saturday night quiz and competition. Well this years theme was minimalism with a set colour palette. Honestly this is as minimal as i can get.
I love the back too.
I didnt win but Janice did, bottom left, so pretty. Well done Janice.
After the competition there was a quiz, two teams, three team rounds three solo. My team was trailing by 8 points at the final round, it was a seam ripping challenge and guess who represented our team 😊😊 yep, yoors truly! I do claim to be the fastest seam ripper in the west but thats becusse i rip a lot of seams! I just had to recreate my triumph for posterity ...
See those young youtubers?? Aint got nothing on a 53 year old arthriticky librarian 😂😂😂
My husband couldnt speak for laughing after seeing this. 
Anyhoo wot else happened?? Well in a vain attempt to exercise off some of the cake we ate i went for a bijoux jogette in the mornings.
All the way down to the entrance.
You can hear the birds all around you.
The bedrooms in Gartmore are amazing, somehow this ended upside down ... but you get the picture I also finished off the mahoosive liberty quilt! Seemed fitting since i started it there all those months ago.
Wow, still cant quite believe ive finished it!!
There is always music playing and this song i always associate with Gartmore. So Gartmore with your lovely nooks and crannies
We will be back, so thank you frim the quilty friends

  4. You need a youtube channel!!! Brilliant! I LOVE the Liberty quilt, it's magnificent! And Priscilla is a lot bigger than I thought he was, I thought he was about 12" square!
