FQ Linky party


so, this time next week ......
Fat Quarterly
I am ridiculously excited to be finally meeting all my virtual bloggy friends for real!  I am taking this opportunity to introduce myself via the FQ London 2012 link. This is me

 .... but I don't think that photo will help you out, so try this instead..

I would like to think I don't always look this gormless, but who knows...

I have been blogging for about 18 months now and have loved every minute of getting to know folks and learning lots of new techniques. I live in Essex, up in the North part, near the sea - in Tiptree, where the jam comes from.  I am a single mum with two fabulous teenage daughters, 15 and 18, and live is good.  I have a great job, although at the moment the hours are long.  I am also studying for my AAT exams and am in my last year, with two exams left to go!!

I am taking the framed purse class on Saturday morning and the paper pieced pillows on Saturday afternoon.  I am only there for the day, but a whole day is so much better than not being there at all.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank Lynne and Tacha for helping me out today with my supplies list.  They both must have thought they were dealing with a complete idiot (which they were) as I began to panic today when reading about everyones supplies list.  I didnt have one.  I checked back on my original email and on the attachement and could only see a basic list and which classes I was doing.  Several emails back and forth and I still wasn't getting a list.  It wasn't until I actually opened the attachement on my laptop INSTEAD of my blackberry that I realised there was more than one page to the attachment and the other pages listed everything that I would need.  What a complete idiot I am - I need to do some panic buying now.  Thank you so much ladies for your patience.

So, thats me .... thanks for stopping by and can't wait to meet you next week

  19. Catherine, I will have to open said list for the 54th time now, it seems that I can't get organized this time. There's always something missing - and I know already that I will forget to pack the international plug :o(
