Meeting Sue Daley

After spending some time on Hannes porch yesterday, we drove up to Voksen kirke where Sue Daley teaches in 3 different workshops this week. And yesterday she also was giving a presentation of herself and her work (Show and Tell)

While waiting we (of course) inspected all the goodies Kathrines Quiltestue had on display on the tables.

A lot of inspiration, and of course Sue Daleys templates was in focus.

Must admit there was a lot of temptations.

Waiting for the Show and Tell. Several of these ladies had already attended a workshop with Sue this day, and we others were soooooooo envious LOL.

A lot of ladies came to listen to Sue and see her Show and Tell.

And finally she came :) It was so fun that she earlier this day had asked for me. And she recognized me with my name when she met me. I was the first one winning a prize on her blog several years ago, and we were both Stitchers Angels in 2009. She is such a wonderful women, easy to talk with and so kind. I am so thrilled to have met her.

Before Sue started with her presentation, there was a show and tell by ladies who had brought with them quilts made from Sue's patterns. Sue told us she loved to see how different her patterns turned out with other colour choises.

And then Sue started her presentation and Show and Tell. I am in love with this quilt called It Takes Two, and will start sewing on it this weekend.

I love this quilt too, and want to make this one too!!!!!

Sue gave us all so much inspiration and I now have so many ideas in my head.

Kathrines Quiltestue have this quilt Pie and Tarts as a BOM. I bought this pattern long time ago, now I want to start seweing on this again.

Thank you Sue for this wonderful inspiring presentation.

I just bought a few must-have things yesterday. Refill to my glue pen, some paper piecing shapes, the thread Sue reccomended, her needles and 2.5 m of a beautiful backing fabric. This I am going to use in my It Takes Two quilt.
