Last night was my second meeting with the Gisborne Quilters.
Things started in the early afternoon while I was driving home from the hospital. DH asked me whether I was planning to go that night and while I was trying to recover from the shock that he remembered on his own I managed to spit out that I was hoping to go and waiting for all the usual objections. There were none so I was told to drive safely and he'd cook dinner for himself and the kidlet.
Now I was scared. Who are you and what have you done with my husband????
I assumed he was being nice to me because I was worried about Dad. Not so!
When he got home he said he was approached by Annette at work and she asked him whether I was his wife and a member of Gisborne Quilters!
Now I'd never met Annette but remembered her name off the list and it turned out that she and a number of other Gisborne Quilters are all teachers at work where Andrew also works in the IT department!
He seemed pretty traumatized by his meeting with Annette so naturally I couldn't wait to meet my saviour.
Upon arriving I discovered that FIVE of our members all work there plus Lorraine who used to work there before she opened Quilter's Bazaar.
I was thrilled and knew I'd never have a problem getting there again! With 7 people knowing who he is, he became (quite literally) the butt of all our jokes!
I did reattach the button on his pants (yes I know I said I'd do this many posts ago) as well as kidlet's school jumper but I thought I'd give him another reminder about quilters and mending.

It was only lightly tacked on since they are his work pants!
All the work ladies promised to have him bending over all day at work! Muhahahahahahaha!
