Totally fabulous days

Spending a weekend sewing up a mountain in lovely company, one week into an academic term, was just perfection! What fun we had! It was the 10th edition of the now-famous Patchwork in the Peaks, led by the fabulous Elita, in Morzine in the French Alps. A little over an hour’s drive from my home.

 Elita, organiser-extraordinaire and our guest teacher the famous Lucy of Charm About You. A beautiful, inspiring fun and clever quilter, and a pleasure to meet.    

 Gina, leader of the ever-famous and legendary ‘scrap-attack’ projects, helping an experienced sewer/ new quilter, in the amazing temporary studio overlooking the mountains.  
   
Then, once back near Geneva, I had the pleasure of placing my newly-finished quilts around the house. Truly a treat.

  
And on the way home from work today, I popped into a second-hand shop and found this little beauty for all of ten Swiss francs. She clearly needed rescuing! Amazing, as quilts really aren’t much of a thing around here.

Right, now back to work for the rest of the term…

Happy quilting! JJ
