This is how I will be remembered from the weekend. Thanks Teresa. Team Windsor who won the pub quiz without the help from those on the back row, were also victorious in the Iron Man challenge, more later.

On Friday night a group of us met in the lobby of the Radisson and went on the Tube to Tikki Patchwork in Kew where we had scummy sausage rolls, Pimms and fabric. A good chance to get to know a few of the ladies as I only knew Wendy who was a Saturday only retreater.
These are all my freebies and other swaps. from left to right - ugly fabric swap, Liberty bag from the Liberty lady, jelly rolls for winning the iron man challenge and the other was for the Jelly roll race but I had 5 1/2 hours of classes on Sunday so it got put on the back burner but John kindly said we could keep the jelly rolls, miscellaneous haby, petit four of Kate Spain fabric, London fabric and Oakshot fabric from the goody bag when we arrived, Liberty packet of fabric when we were watching Lizzie and Diane do a mini necklace demo, fat quarter swaps, I almost forgot the Aurifil thread in the goody bag, CD of the 2010 issues of Fat Quarterly which I must load on my ipad today and last but not least I took the leftover owls fabric from our Iron Man challenge.
My purchase over the three days, not including the Tilda, real Simple and Martha Stewart magazines.
* Fluffy Sheep delivered the Michael Miller clock fabric to my hotel for me to match some fabrics from Tikki to make the popular 241 bag.
* Incoco nails from Selfridges - lady recognised me from our visit in October.
* glasses for Chris
* Tape and summersville charm packs from Lu.
* Joelberry chevrons, alphabet ribbon and linen from Tikki.
Quite restrained really.
Here's what I made in class:
Quarter of a union jack with Lynne - annoyed that's all I achieved in three hours apart from another quarter which is half made.
Port hole sample with class with Lu whom we are inviting to come to teach in Jersey in 2013.
Pouch made with Claudia - once again i wasn't listening due in part to the background noise in the main hall. And I'm sticking to that excuse!! However Claudia gave me pointers for future zipped projects.
The fourth class was the Designers Challenge and I plan to make some blocks from my sketches but not this week.
