Hello! This is me

Hi there, my name is Catherine and this is me with my two daughters (this is about the only picture I like of me!)
 
 
I am really looking forward to the retreat.  I went last year but only for the Saturday and it was really overwhelming, in an amazing way.  I met new people and people that I chatted to via the blog. 
 
Since then I have joined two bees, one of which was mooted at the retreat and then became a reality.  These are the two quilts from those two bees: 
 

I can't thank my fellow bees enough for these and I am really looking forward to meeting some of them for the first time at the retreat.

I have joined in with a lot of other quilters and made a Siblings Together quilt, which I will bring with me to hand over.  I made it with a jelly roll that I won in the raffle at the retreat last year: it seemed fitting that I was able to make a ST quilt with my winnnings


 And this is my other quilt that is in progress: my double wedding ring, hand pieced from all my tiny scraps
So, I look forward to meeting you at the retreat and making more new friends and discovering more blogs.
