This was the weekend which had to be cancelled.
Unfortunately, after much effort, Janet McCallum was unable to make the journey across. Janet was determined to be here, and really did her very best, but between changing airports and examining all the options, she was forced to submit to the inclement weather from Siberia which has disrupted British and Irish travel so badly. [The Beast from the East].
Though many parts of the North have little or no snow, other parts are snowbound. Therefore, the decision was made to cancel the entire weekend.
It was a weekend to stay indoors, keep warm and providing your electric hadn’t given up, you could sew, sew, sew.
Leaving you with this text message received yesterday from a quilter who lives just outside Dublin. In case anyone doesn’t know – all Dublin flights have been cancelled until tomorrow. She says:
Good morning, sitting here snug and warm indoors. More snow last night on top of a foot from Tuesday night. So, I’m forced to sew, sew, sew. We have a full tank of oil, plenty of fuel for the fire and lots of food. Plus candles should the power go and wool applique projects if candle light permits.
Ladies, we’ll be in touch about rescheduling Janet etc. Meanwhile take the Kildare Quilter’s advice – and snuggle down with your favourite project.
