There are several requirements:
1. A cottage in the middle of nowhere.
2. Like-minded sewing friends.
3. No internet connection.
4. Pretty much no telephone connection.
5. No kids/dogs/husbands.
6. A ridiculous amount of giggling.
This magic combination enabled me to finally finish the Denyse Schmidt scappytripalong (initial shame quotient 5/10). That, and a skill swap where Kelly quilted the bugger for me and I helped to piece her triangle quilt. It’s been through the wash now and I have to say that it is growing on me a little. The husband really likes it, so that’s nice. In fact, he just this minute said “I love this quilt – it’s kind of old school”. So there you go – I speak only the truth.
