Last Day for our French Visitor

It's Corentin's last day today and I think we will really miss him when he goes tomorrow - certainly I will; he's the only one who speaks to me in this house!

Anyway, we had our final outing yesterday, and thoroughly enjoyed Segwaying through Bracknell Forest - great fun!

We've had such fun going out on trips at the weekend.  I loved going to Stonehenge, where I haven't been since I was a girl when we would nip up there for a picnic and climb all over the stones.  George didn't really believe me until we went into the exhibition and there were pictures of people doing just that!

The weather hasn't been great but we've been able to have a bar-be-cue most weekends

Anyway, since he's off tomorrow Jonathan and I drove him all around the periphery of the farm;  it's been a while since we've done that and I quite enjoyed it.  We drove past the fields of Rape, Spring Barley, Oats and Wheat:


None of it ready for harvest yet.

When we passed this Blackberry bush I started thinking about jam making and vividly imagined the tastes, smells and feeling of Autumn which I really love but then pulled myself back sharpish because we haven't had much of a summer yet!

Anyway, it was a nice Sunday morning drive.

Two success stories from the workshop last week - both Denise and Sue finished their quilts!

Lynne was very impressed with Sue's because she had managed to add a Quilt as you Go border - no mean feat!

And she had carefully planned the back so there was a pattern there too:

Denise's went a bit wrong in the workshop (girl after my own heart), but she managed to put it right and is really pleased with the final result:

Very beautiful indeed!!
