Where is the Time Going?

I just had a lovely walk in the sunshine picking the last of the elderflowers for a final batch of Elderflower Cordial

I know where the cordial goes (it's been drunk practically as fast as I make it) but where does the time go?  We're well into July already and I can hardly believe it.

A lot of my time goes into making stuff - and this bobbin pin cushion I made last week made everyone laugh:

Everyone liked it so much that we thought it would be a fun workshop to hold later this year.  I got in touch with Bobbin Patch, which is where I bought the kit, and they've said they would be happy for us to do it so keep an eye out for our new schedule!

At the Lynne Johnson day last week Jan brought her finished Medallion Quilt to show us

Very inspiring!  Lynne said that if I didn't spend my time making giant pin cushions and robins I would have finished mine by now!  And she also showed us the quilt she made her daughter from T shirts of shows she's either appeared in or loved watching

At Pitch and Stitch this morning Anthea was working on the Twilight Silhouettes hanging she started at a Gail Lawther Workshop

and Sally has finished the stunning quilt she's made for her son - a beautiful example of foundation piecing.

So everyone's been very busy!

We are enjoying having Corentin here for work experience and have found he's an excellent excuse for a day out!  We had a lovely daytrip to London last week.  We saw lots of sights, walked along the Thames - although because the tide was in there were a few problems

watched the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace

and enjoyed a delicious Italian lunch in Covent Garden - where I was very impressed with their flower displays

and Corentin was very excited to see that the crates were from near where he lives in France!

Oh, and by the way, if for no other reason you should come to the workshop for the chat - you would not believe what they get up to in Witney these days!!

  1. I am definitely going to make elderflower cordial next year. I think I have left it too late this year.

    twilight quilt.
