This post has been a while coming, and since I've already written it once and then accidently deleted it, it's likely to be a short one.
We've been busy, with lots going on, including the little East Garston Craft Show last weekend. I'd gone down on the Friday night to set up but hadn't read the e mail saying the times had changed so found the place all locked up. Robert kindly took my stuff down on Saturday though and set it up for me, leaving Frosty to keep guard:
The reason I couldn't be there was because I was at
The next day was Harvest Festival - a sign that Autumn has arrived. I'm still picking Blackberries and Raspberries, but the devil has sadly spat on most of them. The Dogwood my sister gave me years ago and which we planted outside the workshop, is looking really beautiful and we love looking out at it:
We didn't go to the Harvest lunch, though, and I'll explain why later.
We have been very busy in the workshop, and it was lovely to see three quilts made by Pam, Pippa and Jackie:
Pam and Pippa have now made a start on their Sutton Grange Quilts, but Jackie is mainly making rabbits or clothes for rabbits. My Bobbin Pin Cushion with the sheep has gone over to Jersey (huge sigh of relief for those who thought they might be getting it for Christmas) to remind Victoria of the hills of home, and now I'm making one for me with Scottie dogs!
Finally the really big thing that has happened the last couple of weeks is that Jonathan has had his hip replacement!
The patient is recovering well, (note, only one stick now!) and not too bored yet so hopefully after two or three months he'll be able to live up to his name and be hopping around all over the place.
Now, let's see if I can publish, rather than delete, this post!
