Farewell

My life has just taken an interesting turn, and I am going to give up most, if not all, of my quilting connections for the next couple of years.  Basically, Mick and I agreed last night to buy a house in Castle Donington, and to sell our two current houses.  We had been looking for a suitable property since February, but could barely dream we would get this one.  It's an old house, with some modern additions, and a huge garden, all within easy walking distance of the village centre.  It's the one house in the village that I've said I would love for the past 20 years, and this is the first time it's been available in 64 years!!

On the down side, there's lots of work to be done, both before and after the move, and I won't have neither any time nor a studio for quite some time, so I'm very sadly bidding farewell to this group.  I have loved being a member since it's start, and I'm particularly sad to be leaving just before you tackle Klimt.  I shall continue to follow the group, and I will soon have more spare bedrooms available should any of you need to place to stay in this area of the UK.

  1. I'm sorry that you'll be leaving us, but what an exciting reason to be going.
    Fresh starts are wonderful things and it sounds as though this one was meant to happen! Good luck with your new venture.

  4. Linda, please don't forget us and please stay in touch. I hope this will only be a sabbatical and that you will return to us when you have an urge to do some textile work to maintain your sanity and to make a change from the building work. It all sounds very exciting and fortuitous - how could you not take the plunge?! Hilary
