The day was very long and very hot, and at one point I told myself I would never ever go again. It finished with Beyonce (I think that`s how you spell her name) who I wasn`t really bothered about, but my goodness me could she perform and belt the songs out, accompanied not only by an all female band, but amazing fireworks too! I fianlly crawled into bed just after two on Monday morning, and who knows I may go again!

On Satuday Debby is off to Honiton to a South West Quilters `do`. We were very pleased that they asked if we would be interested in having a stand. We have been deliberating all day about what she should take, so hope we have made the right decisions.
We are still getting customers in the shop from all sorts of interesting places. On Tuesday a very nice Scottish lady came in who is staying in the area, before she goes to see family in Scotland, on leave from West Africa. She lived in America before that, and has done lots of quilting, so has probably gone from the sublime to ridiculous. It was good to meet Wendy today who came with her friend from further up the county. I knew I had met her before, but couldn`t think when or where, until she reminded me that I used to teach her daughter, it`s such a small world. It was lovely to see her again, and I loved her linen bag with red buttons embroidered on it and the fantastic red and white spotty lining.
We have finally received all our fabric orders for some time now, but thats probably just as well as the shop is bulging at the seams. That said we are expecting our Christmas fabric in soon, I can`t believe I have told you all that, but we have been asked for it already and have sold several advent calenders. Debby goes quite quiet when this fabric is mentioned, but I am convinced she wants to open a Christmas Shop!
