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

Soooo busy!

We have had such a busy time since I last wrote - and yes, I did forget to wipe up that splotch of milk but there was no need for Sandra to go on quite as much as she did.
The new style sampler course started with great enthusiasm and I know there are going to be five beautiful quilt tops by July.
The Bag Workshop was great fun - loads of Tweedy bags were made and quite a few shoppers - I finally made one and plan to make more: so quick and easy.

I have started a Tilda Easter hanging which I plan to finish (!) saturday morning at the Easter Pitch and Stitch:
Sandra was lucky enough to visit the Tilda workshop in Norway the other weekend - she said it was fantastic and inspiring and is now completely obsessed with Scandinavian interiors.  I'm just very jealous about it.

Then yesterday we had the Medallion quilt day - we (well some of us) are now pretty much half way through (Sandra and I are a bit behind) so here's a gallery of the quilts so far:
Whoops!  That's a picture of our two old dogs sleeping.  I'm not deleting it because it takes so long to upload everything.
So, again, here's a gallery of the quilts so far:

Yes - and that's a picture of George's tractor - he's been rolling and I've borrowed his camera.

Right - third time lucky:

Below is Jan's - she only joined the group last month
 And then here are the two who just aren't keeping up:

Aren't they amazing!  So much work has gone into them.
The class is full now, but as the speedier ones finish there should be some space come September.

And Helene brought in the Mini-Sampler she is doing a workshop on in a few weeks' time-

You wouldn't be able to make the whole sampler in a day - but you'll learn how to foundation piece so you can work on the other designs yourself.  It really is stunning and not nearly as difficult as it looks.

Finally - there has been some extension work going on at Lorne Hill Farm:
A pair of wrens have built onto the swallows' nest that was made last year.  Don't know what the swallows will think of it on their return!
