AQC Day 2

For 90 minutes before classes start, the participants get to see the quilt displays and do some shopping before the doors open to the public.

It is peaceful at this time of day. For comparison, here's the view at lunchtime:

I did a little bit of shopping, mainly for thread, and had another good look at all the quilt displays.

I enjoyed being able to get a quiet and unobstructed view of them. Here's the scene at lunchtime:
 Not quite so relaxing!

I did another full day workshop with Debby Brown.
You can see how absorbed everyone is in their stitching! That's Debby in the blue top. She is a delightful teacher. You can see her pictures from today on her blog here.

And here's my piece of work for the day:
Very wonky in places, but lots of ideas to try out and expand upon.

It has been a wonderful couple of days. I am sad that my experience of being a "delegate" at AQC is over, but so exhausted that I don't think I could have handled doing the full four days of workshops.
