Crewe.....but will we ever get there?????

We set off at 9.45 this morning for a 40 to 60 (depending on the traffic) minute drive to Crewe. So off down the motorway we went chatting away, I was supposed to be navigating and I did say we needed exit number 10 or 11 but along we merrily went, the next thing I knew we were half a mile from Liverpool!!!! Woops!!!!!  😲  So we turned around and headed back.....next we missed the next turnoff so had to work out where we were and take another route......do you get an idea of how this trip is going??? We finally found Crewe, but I couldn't follow the directions we had so had to make a phone  call for help!!  Luckily we were helped and found the correct street
All this was because I wanted to meet Diane and there she was on the door step...we were only about an hour and a half late!!!  😯
We had a lovely visit, it was so nice to meet Diane after exchanging comments and emails via our blogs.

Waiting for the birdie!!

Diane surprised me with a lovely present......this just reinforces for me that quilters are wonderful people!! She had made me one of her Diane bags 


One side with a pocket

The other side


And it is full of goodies!!!! Thank you Diane, it was wonderful to meet you and you spoiled us with the lovely sponge cake you made...no photo 'cos it is gone!!!! And with the beautiful bag.  

You can see the wonderful things Diane makes on her blog here.
Off for a soak in the bath!!! Yay!!  😄
