Just want to say a belated thank you to Margaret for her help with the on-line edition of the magazine. Peter (DH) has been working on your suggestions and hopes to come up with an answer before the end of the year. I should have posted a thank you earlier but life does get in the way. A big thank you to you.
Hope you all have a good time at FOQ. It has been an ambition of mine to go to Birmingham and I would love to have been there last year to see all of your beautiful little quilts, meet up with everyone and to thank Katy and Liz for all their hard work. Don't think this year will be quite as interesting, it's a hard act to follow.
Since hanging up my quilting tools I have been busy finishing some UFO's. It's surprising what you find in the bottom of the box! We still have our Art Appreciation group meetings at the quilting club. This last month we had Van Gough as our artist and there were some amazing little quilts. I love to see members blossom! One of our group joined us just over a year ago and hadn't done much sewing. As the months have gone by she has become interested in thread painting and her piece was amazing considering the short time she has been experimenting. The second picture is thread paining and drawing with pencil done by another member.
I cheated and printed a couple of his paintings onto fabric and made a bag (of course)
We are off on holiday next week so I may not be able to look in as frequently. Hope you all enjoy FOQ.

|BBC online news - Playing brain games is 'of little benefit' says a report by the Global Council on Brain Health and recommends that people engage in stimulating activities such as designing a quilt.|
So there you go - we are all keeping our brains healthy!!!!

Gosh, crosseyed from reading so many posts trying to catch up from missing so much whilse I had lots of family here and didn't have time.#
All gone now, boo hoo, was lovely.
Can only remember a few things to say without looking through everything again! Fiona and Maria I think you are both GREAT and obviously very brave and together ladies. Just don't do too much. My thoughts and love are with you both. Big hugs.
We have Tour de France on continuously in this house!!! Therefore I could have seen the lovely area in which you live Margaret but didn't know. Pity.
It is stinking hot here at present, breaking all records. The only thing we can do in afternoon is stay quiet and go to bottom of house and be calm. Not much better now at 9.30 but I would still rather be here than anywhere else.
Guess FoQ is quite soon so have a wonderful time all who are going.
This year I am going to St. Marie aux Mines with my Palma group. Have always wanted to see that one.

Sylvia - yes, it's a pity you missed seeing this gorgeous part of France - it is truly beautiful. Thank you for thinking of me. Glad you had such a lovely time with you family though. Do try to keep inside out of the dreadful heat, Sylvia - it sounds frightening from our TV news here. It's pretty exhausting here in the South West (37/38c at times) but we are nothing like the South East of France with it's wild fires which in itself is terrible enough never mind your part of Spain which is a complete nightmare. Do take care.
Margaret S - "our" magazine is definitely undergoing some strange changes these days!!! What next?

I have to admit to feeling a little annoyed about the two mags being sold together. I wanted to buy British P&Q as it had a really good write up about the Gwent Quilters group to which several of my sewing friends belong. As I'm a subscriber to PP onne of my friends will benefit from the extra copy next week!!
