And this is what Jake looked like after waiting 2 minutes for me to feed him (he eats in the porch so Bo and Mattie don't take his food).
And again, I felt sorry for Jonathan out feeding the sheep:
However, it was pretty for me to look out on as I had my morning cup of tea!
I didn't really expect to see anyone at Pitch and Stitch yesterday morning, but was very pleased when three Garston Gals came up (one pulling her quilt on a sledge!) We had cherry and almond biscuits and hot chocolate (which Monty, who had come up for straw, also enjoyed) and I finally managed to finish the neckerchief quilt!!
I made it for a lady in Australia (an aunt of a lady in the village) whose husband had passed away - and these were his neckerchiefs. It was much trickier than I expected because besides being of different fabric (some very thin) the neckerchiefs were not perfect squares. Then, because she chose a backing fabric of two inch squares, I ended up hand-quilting the whole thing in two inch squares (not intentionally - I meant to do 4 inch squares but went wrong and rather than unpick, ended up quilting it a lot more than I wanted. Still, it's done now and I hope she likes it - that's if it survives the delicate wash it's getting while I write - always a nail-biting moment when you take it out of the machine!
