April Showers...and snow, and wind, and frost, and a Bit of Sunshine!

Well, April is really acting up this year.  We've had glowering skies

and snow
and cold wind and rain but luckily, in between, bits of lovely sunshine to walk out in.  Most days Millie and I get to walk alongside the paddocks and enjoy the sight of the lambs playing in the late afternoon sun

But a lot of us are feeling very tired, so it was nice to get some inspiration in the workshop today.  We welcomed Sheila back and hope she and Ron manage to come down to the caravan site a few more times this year!

Victoria and Ben are over from Jersey and it was lovely to see what Victoria has been working on.  She has used some software she has to make a cross stitch pattern for a picture of Maidencourt, and we were all astounded at her exceedingly intricate work which looked more like a photograph than stitching:

It's going to be stunning when she's finished but such tiny, tiny stitches!

Elsewhere in the workshop there was knitting, Anthea was working on her bag and showed me her carousel piecing,  Louise and Sally were quilting

Janet was working on her English Paper-pieced Hexagon quilt
Mikky's mum was admiring Louise's stitchery and listening to the chat (but mainly waiting till she could go and see the lambs)
and Jackie was working on her beautiful little smocked dress

Some really great work rewarded by a cake made by Micky of Simply Delish!


  1. Well its been a bit like that here too and we`re tired too after celebrating Jamie`s birthday. Can`t wait to see Victoria`s embroidery when it is finished.

  2. Looks like a very creative workshop. Victoria's cross stitch is amazing!

  3. Those dark clouds are so beautiful with the bright sunshine on them, aren't they? I love Spring!!
    I also love all your busy creative visitors.
