Editors' Away Day?

I've often likened to working for the magazine as being on a rollercoaster. It can be relentless and non stop, but it's also great fun; every now and then you feel like you would like to maybe step off the ride but you know it's difficult to get back on again!
And that's how it has been for Judi the last couple of weeks. No sooner had we finished the May issue, which will be out in the next few days..........
.......than she had to get most of her copy done for the June issue before leaving for the States and a P&Q Tour to Paducah. I think she gets a night at home before leaving again to help out at the British Quilt & Stitch Village show in Uttoxeter! We'll blog about that in a couple of weeks. It's going to be a great show!
But with all this rushing around we have agreed on one thing; we are going to have an editors' day out! Just the chance to get together and talk quilts and not deadlines.
Having proofed a review of the Kaffe Fassett exhibition at the Fashion & Textile Museum in London for the May issue, we decided that's where we would go.........luckily it's on until June!
It should be a feast of colour and I am particularly looking forward to one room that features some of his working sketches, colours and designs. I love to see the design process of an artist.
So here's to a day off!
