Leicester Market

Sorry I have'nt been blogging for a few days but I am a bit busy sewing at the moment. This is a picture of Kathleen 'cottonreel' in our market in the city of Leicester. We went shopping as usual on Monday and called here for lovely fresh fruit and veg., it is very noisy with all the stallholders shouting their wares, it is a mixture of fresh food, clothes antiques and lots of other items, there is a fresh fish market close by where my husband always goes on christmas eve to buy all the ingredients for paella which he makes for dinner and which has become a tradition in our family, even if he wanted to stop the kids would'nt let him. Kathleen of course could'nt resist posing, we had loads of bags which were very heavy, we had travelled in on the park and ride, so by the time we got on the bus to take us back to the car we had very long arms. I will post again soon but probably not tomorrow as we are off to The Festival of Quilts at the NEC we are very excited there will be three of us me 'bluebell' cottonreel' and 'silversewer' I had better take a quilted bag this time as last time cottonreel told me I had let the side down because I took a bag from 'Paperchase' it took me weeks to live that one down. See you soon!

Oh my goodness! I've been calling Kathleen "solomi" and you "bluebell" when you're really Jill. It's nice to know your real names now! I love reading posts about the two of you girls out and about! Hugs, Paulette :o)
