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

Beautiful music.....horrible harvest!

Well - what a morning we've had!  Dorina and Brian stayed the night on our CL, and it turns out Dorina is a violinist who has led practically every Symphonia (Scottish, London, Los Angeles) we've ever heard of.  Anyway, she came up this morning to give Jonathan a lesson and also played some pieces for us.  What a joy!  And Jonathan's Happy Birthday is coming along very nicely.

Went to the Festival of Quilts the other week and saw some beautiful quilts.  A few of my favourites were:
Wrapped in Gentleness by Hiromi Yokota - wow! 70,000 beads handsewn to quilt!
In Memory of my Mother by Patricia Fitzgibbons.  This quilt incorpoated old pieces of embroidery - something I've had in mind for a while.

Julia's Venetian Travelling Quilt by Michelle Holmes of Ashby de la Zouch.
