Marica and Shirley browsing the shops and do some shopping…
This year we decided on one more day in Birmingham…
Last year we had to rush through the last day so no stress this year!
On Thursday we were able to meet Nina in our Scandibee…
and deliver our blocks for her in person…
It was great to meet and chat some…
At the Oakshott stand we got to see Krista Henneburys quilt
“Temperature Check”
and we got even more exited about the class “Improve under the influence”
that we were going to have with her in October…
(That we now have had..since I’m so late posting… 😉
This lovely bundle followed with me home…
And some more…
