Quilting and sweet things!

Well, the Jubilee is fast approaching and I'm getting very excited.  As well as the children being home, we'll also have some French guests from the Hungerford Twinning Association, so the house will be very crowded.  I have great plans which involve a lot of bunting.  Unfortunately the bunting isn't getting made because I am working on the celebratory kneeler Dawn passed on for me to do.  Dawn has finished hers,

- I can hardly believe that this is the same lady who told me she can't do crafts - anyway, mine isn't quite ready to be photographed yet.

Pam, who came on the Log Cabin Cabin workshop in early spring and is currently on the Beginner's Sampler course, brought along her completed quilt for us to see:

Very, very beautiful!

Then, last saturday, Helene came and taught foundation piecing.  We had, to quote Mina in her note to me 'a fab day' and everyone (including Sue and Joan from Devon and Helene from Wales) was really pleased with the blocks they made.  They were all so keen that they had set up and started by 9.50 - now that doesn't happen very often!  Here are the blocks they made at the workshop, though Sue and Joan came to pitch and stitch the following Tuesday and made even more:

They really were brilliant!

Oh - and here's something sweet that Mina brought along:
...even less left by the end of the day!

And here's something sweet that is down our garden (and I don't mean Jonathan) - she was premature and is so tiny, Jonathan has been bottle feeding her three times a day:

Isn't it amazing that I've had to come in now because it's too hot to stay in the garden (I'm getting all my annuals out of the greenhouse) and yet just a week ago we were out in hats and coats!

And here are some sweet little things that hatched
this morning.  Mum and 5 chicks doing very well!
