Yesterday was the best day out I have had in forever. A few of us from the LMQG went to the beautiful home of the brilliant and hilarious Lucie Summers for a screen printing workshop. Lucie had prepared screens with our designs for a quilt label in advance, so after a cup of tea (in THAT mug) we got right down to business. Thanks to Lucie’s expert tuition, there were happy dances going on all over the studio.

It’s possible that I got a little bit carried away with all the lovely colours available and I now have more quilt labels than I could ever use, I think. Ah well, any excuse to make a million quilts. In all the excitement (and hysterical giggling) I only remembered to take one photo.
|each of these makes two labels, so I have about 2 billion of them|
After lunch we all had a go with some of Lucie’s own screens, which was really great. By the time everyone was finished practically the entire floor of the house was covered in drying fabric.
And then, of course, there was the Summersville, some of which accidentally jumped into my bag and found its way home with me. I have no idea how that could have happened. Odd.
All in all a great day out. I haven’t laughed so much for ages. Or eaten as much lasagna, but that’s a whole different issue.
