This hanging from Annie Downs' Hatched and Patched book should be in every caravan as a cushion or decoration!

Christine's quilt

Christine brought her lovely quilt to Pitch and Stitch this morning.  Her mother had made it for her when she went away to college and sent it to her in the post.  As with all the lovely old quilts, Christine could point to patches and remember what dress or skirt it had been taken from.  These sort of quilts, which evoke so many memories, have got to be the best.

Thanks to Sheri for the photos - she's back at work next week so we'll miss her at Pitch and Stitch - make sure you keep knitting though Sheri!

All kinds of sewing and knitting was going on - and an awful lot of chat!
Sandra and I have been drawing up the Autumn schedule - lots of interesting and fun classes.  We are also running a six week beginner's knitting on Monday evenings which will be great - I'll be using it to fill in the gaps in my rather sketchy knowledge of the craft!
We are also very excited about the Clare Kingslake workshop in October -we'll be making the hanging she has designed especially for Lorne Hill Farm (wow) and you can see it on her blog - http://www.clarespatterns.wordpress.com/
