Where has the time gone.

I can't believe it's been over 2 weeks since my last post,
what have I been doing?

Well I had my Brother to stay for a few days so there was
lunch and a walk around the walled garden at Felbrigg
to see how much it had changed in the last 3 months,
which was when I took this picture.

Here is the same wall now.

And of course as he lives so far from the sea in Wiltshire,
we have to have Fish and Chips on Cromer beach.
Family tradition upheld then.

I have also been spoiling myself .
Well we all deserve to spoil ourselves sometimes don't we.

 I have two new books all about quilting.
These are my first quilting books so I think I have been fairly
restrained really as I started quilting in January.
One is Kaffe fassett's Simple Shapes,Spectacular quilts
which you can have a quick look at here

The other is Material obsession found here.
I wanted to show you which were my favourite quilts
but I'm not sure how we come off with copyright
so have erred on the side of caution and gone with the link.

This is my latest finished quilt that has been done in my quilting class.

The centre is a mariners compass with waves done the side,
all very nautical. No idea what I'm going to do with it 
but then that isn't the point is it
I enjoyed making it.
The next class starts in September and
 I'm going to do a Christmas table runner.
Sorry ladies shouldn't have mentioned that word quite yet should I.

Here is my last purchase, a real extravagance.
Liberty lawn fabric from the Selvedge sale.
Aren't they beautiful?
Time to find a pattern to make something 
out of them or else I might just keep them to look at.

Anyway enjoy the rest of your weekend.
See you soon.



  1. Your 1st quilt is amazing! I also have the KF book, it's beautiful to look at..... and as for your new Liberty fabric, I'm quite jealous :)
