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

Tuesday morning

Another productive morning at the workshop.  There were 9 visitors all busy quilting, knitting and sewing so lots to see.  We had three ladies up from the CL - two from Devon and one from Australia - so lots to talk about.  Joan goes to lots of workshops in Devon and had some beautiful bags to show us, and the other two ladies were making 'disappearing blocks' quilts (how can it be that two people from opposite sides of the world would be making quilts from the same pattern and almost identical fabrics?).  I'm still working on the naive flowers hanging (too much gardening going on) but it's getting there.
It has been so hot these last few days and I envy Victoria who is spending a couple of days down at the beach.  Harvest has started round here so there is, as usual, a lot of tension in the air.  It comes around every year but farmers always seem surprised!  George is spending a week at Sparsholt learning tractor maintenance so we are one man short to drive the corn trailor.
Since visiting our village allottments (-they were immaculate) I've been doing a lot of gardening - weeding mainly.  Everything is coming up now so we have beans, tomatoes, courgettes, potatoes and peas - but it all has to be picked so work, work, work.
Better get out there now.......
