|I tried to match the font in the header of Kelly's blog|
I am really upset with this side because I had a little iron incident which removed a tiny bit of the K and I almost cried. but given this was like my 900th attempt at making this tag, it had to go with a huge apology to Kelly. #ihateironing.
I received my name tag from lovely Ann in Denmark. Ann and I are part of the FQR Kinky Bee that was born out of the envy some of us felt at last year's Retreat when seeing the piles of loveliness that the Brit Bee guys had made. There were enough of us to have two groups in the Bee but this meant that Ann was a Honey and I was a Bumblie so we haven't made anything for each other until this thing of beauty arrived on Saturday....

|what's the collective noun for a pile of iron cosies? a glide?|
Yep, in sweatshop conditions, I made iron cosies for my group! I dearly hope they travel with hot irons :-/. A friend of mine said that I must have too much time on my hands to make a cosy for my iron - if only that were true. But I've found mine useful for guild meetings (well, that one where I took it!) and wanted to do something that no-one else would make. I hope to make bags for them to go into before the end of tomorrow cos that's where my time goes haywire.
I'm off to Barcelona on Wednesday for the night to catch up with a dear friend who is visiting Europe from New Zealand. She is an extremely talented writer as well as quite simply the loveliest person and I am super excited about seeing her again - it's been about 9 years or so I think. Anyhow, I'm back on Thursday in time to unpack and repack to head to London on Friday morning for the Retreat. I still have to pull all my class prep together. I have washed and pressed my fabric for the PJ making class with Kerry....

I still have to pull together everything for Trudi's FMQ for the terrified workshop, Lucie's hand quilting session and Ruth's Trapunto session ( but I think I'll just buy her kit on the day) #shedloadstodo
I'm linking up with Catherine's slow blogger linky party - it's over at Martha's this month - and then off for a lie down! Thank goodness Tuesday is a half day workwise for me! I'll leave you with this cracking tune....
