The Great Northern Quilt Show 2014

At the end of August, me and Mum went along to The Great Northern Quilt Show in Harrogate (yes, I’m still catching up with post writing!).

Over the few days running up to the weekend, the UK was hit with rather a lot of snow, and I was wondering if we would make it.
