I'm going to the Fat Quarterly Retreat!

Next weekend I am off to the Fat Quarterly retreat in London (after we have been to DS's graduation in Aberystwyth!)
I booked this weekend months ago with money I was given for a special birthday - so you could say I'm still celebrating!
There's a linky party of the Fat Quarterly blog, so I thought I'd better introduce myself. I live in Wales with my husband, 2 kids and very fat cat and have been quilting since 2000. I can't really describe my style as I just love all quilts, traditional, modern, arty, utilitarian - all of 'em.
At the Irregular Choice shop in Carnaby Street earlier in the year, wearing favourite colour pink and carrying my lovely red satchel ( another special birthday present). And these are the fabulous shoes I bought that day! Those rosettes are made of tape measures.
Perfect quilter's shoes don't you agree?

I'm looking forward to the retreat, meeting the other attendees and joining in with the classes
