A Busy Morning in the Workshop!

What a lot of things happening in the workshop this morning

Smocking, quilting, appliqueing.......

making a hexagon quilt with English piecing - and that was only on this table.

Sandra was busy finishing off her grand-daughter's birthday present: a lovely doll with a whole suitcase of clothes

We all thought it was lovely.  On the other (my) table, there was a bit of Folk art stitching, more quilting, and I never did see what Anthea was doing.  I had my head down sewing leaves onto freezer paper for my medallion quilt.  I had cut out loads and was determined to get them all done.  When I had finished the last one, I decided to count them and was pleased to see there were 24! 

I was less pleased when I got out the borders and realised I had already made, and sewn on, loads, and in fact only needed six, and one more flower.

There's a lesson there but I have decided I'm going to have very leafy borders.

This afternoon Millie and I decided to walk down to the barn so she could have a play on the bales of straw....

something she loves doing and when Reuben comes too he runs up and down like a mountain goat!  Anyway, on the way down I took a couple of photos of the re-landscaped caravan site.


Jonathan has squared it up so it is much bigger.  We will still only ever take 5 vans at a time, but they will have more room to manoeuver and a bit more space for children and pets to play.  In the Autumn we will plant some more trees. 

We opened for the season today and  are expecting our first visitors of the year this weekend!


  1. I hope its not too cold for the campers. Love that doll with all its clothes. I wanted to do that kind of craft when I was 8 but didn`t have the skills or the materials. Perhaps this is why I stockpile so much fabric!!

  2. Yay! First day of Spring (according to the meteorologists apparently)!

  3. Nice crafts.
    Happy caravaning!
