I’ve been stitching away on BBD’s Pink Hill Manor and enjoying the colours in this one. It’s such a sweet design and one of those pieces where the colours are so restful and calming to work on!
I took a little road trip earlier in the week with a couple of friends who love to quilt. They were going to a shop I wasn't familiar with. It sounded intriguing - about 30 miles away out in the country, along a narrow country road that’s only single lane so you don’t want to meet a car coming the other way and the ‘shop’ is, in fact, a very large garden shed in this woman’s garden! Well, what a lovely little place! I never thought to take my camera with me but I wish I had. This lady had more fabric packed into her ‘shop’ than you could imagine and she had an even larger shed beside that that she used as a workshop. I have dabbled in quilting, many years ago when my first son was just a baby. Then his sister arrived and between a toddler and a baby, a smallish house that didn’t have room for me to spread out my quilting projects, I changed direction and started to cross stitch. So, underneath this stitching addict there does lurk someone who could quite easily get started back to quilting. Needless to say, I didn’t come away empty handed! I bought some fabric
then some of this ric rac that was just that little bit different to anything I’ve seen local to me
and I also bought this little kit. Let’s see if I can manage to put this together!
Other than that, DS#2 finished his final exams at university this week. Now it’s the wait for the results and graduation at the start of July. He is planning on continuing as a student for another while as he is hoping to do a Masters next year at a different university.
Wishing everyone a nice weekend and thank you for dropping by!
Until next time…….
