Country Compass

Today was the last day of the three-part Country Compass Workshop with Lynne Johnson.  It's been a brilliant course, if somewhat challenging for some of us.  It was quilt-as-you-go, so, in theory, by the end of the course the quilt should be finished, except for perhaps the binding.
This is a picture of my spot in the workshop by the end of the day:

Hmmm.  A little way to go yet.

At Lorne Hill Farm we pride ourselves on being non-competitive, and obviously I was in no way competing with Anne

  and certainly not with Jackie

Yes - as you can see, all finished, with just the binding to do.
All I will say is, it's East Garston Fete this weekend,  and I'm going to produce the best cake and flower display the village has ever seen, and my single rose is going to blow the judges away, so, if anyone else from the village is planning on entering, Jackie for instance, you may as well give up now.

Also, Anne brought over the cushion she made on the Charm Pack weekend:
She and Sheila had the same idea.

Meanwhile, on the farm, we have erected security fencing around the hen houses - not very attractive but since the fox has eaten 13 of my lovely hens in the last two months (once just the head), we are not taking anymore chances.

We have also just finished hay making:
That was before, and this was during:
Also, the swallows have been busy and I was horrified to see what looked like a baby pterodactyl staring out of the nest at me.  Horror - I decided a cuckoo must have got at the nest and took a photo:

Well, on closer inspection of the photo I realised what it was:
Panic over!!
