Busy few days

It has been a busy few days for Linus in Leicestershire, as we have been out and about spreading the word.  First we went to Brook House Care Home to do some sewing as a kind of stimulus session for the residents there.  unfortunately they weren't really up to participating, but they loved seeing the quilts and enjoyed the activity we caused.  Here are the blocks we made, which are a Kathy Doughty design called 'Fractured'.  It's a very simple design, just rectangles joined with a slanting seam, but the putting together of the blocks was a bit taxing, although I'm sure you'll agree it was well worth the head scratching!
Many thanks to the staff and residents of Brook House for their hospitality.
Then we went to a new local quilt show,
They had kindly offered us a free stall for the weekend, and we had a lovely time.  Paula and I were there most of the time, and Julie helped out on Sunday.

Here they are sewing labels onto completed quilts.  We met old friends and new, and offered ideas, stimulation and advice.  Fifty people took a leaflet with our contact details on, so we were very happy.  
I was even happier this morning to receive a big squishy parcel in the post.  It was this lovely double quilt from Margaret who came up trumps when I told her that we were particularly looking for 'big quilts'.  Wonderful!  Thank you so much, Margaret.
