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

A nice note!

Received the following e mail and I'm sure Gill won't mind me sharing it:

First we would like to thank you for a wonderful peaceful and restful week on your CL site last week, you made us so welcome. we really enjoyed just watching the cows and especially the red kites.
Also thank you for making me so welcome to your Tuesday morning quilt session, it was really interesting to meet new people and see other peoples ideas and quilts.  Already planning when I can get back, visit must include a Tuesday. I have attached a photo of the little cathedral window piece I was working on.  I think I might turn it into a cushion.
 Here's the picture she sent:

Isn't that lovely?

Last week Clare Kingslake gave a wonderful, inspiring talk at the Market Square Quilter's club.  She talked us through each chapter of book, Folk Art Applique, showing us the actual quilts and explaining the process of publishing a book - so much work, to such tight deadlines, I don't know how she did it.

Saturday night I went to a party in Devon which involved me spending a night in a tent.  The party was great fun, the night under canvas confirmed my belief that it's time to put camping behind me.  I have never been so cold in my life - and just when I'd adjusted to it I realised I really HAD to go to the loo.  It's bad enough going to the bathroon at home when you're snug in bed, but having to put on clothes and wellies and trudge across a field to a portable loo was really not the nicest thing in the world!  Sitting in front of the tent in the morning, with a cup of tea in hand and looking at the beautiful view almost made up for it though!

Meanwhile, back on the farm, harvest has started up again.  It's been so difficult this year and later than I've ever known.  However, I shouldn't moan too much, in my father-in-law's day they would be desperate to finish it in time for the Agricultural Show - three weeks' away.

Here are some pictures George took from the corn trailer:

How can there be so much dust after so much rain?
