Didn’t we have a loverley time …

Yes, we certainly did (apart from my badly sprained ankle on day 4, which is still grumbling) …

magical sunsets and a new moon – make a wish

We had awesome weather – wall-to-wall sunshine most days and even when I was ‘iced-up’ and strapped I found I could do some sewing with one foot up on a garden chair!  A sewing studio with sea views – that’s definitely on my wish list!

Summertime – pretty florals in summer colours

I felt inspired by the colourful little cottage and created Hot Town patchwork

I stitched up 3 patchwork quilt tops last week and have finished 2 of the quilts this week.  I’ll post some photos of the finished quilts in the next day or so.  Now – back to the end of a boring game of football – so different from last night’s semi-final.  Have you been watching?  I’m no footie fan but find myself drawn into a tournament like the World Cup.  I’m picking up the lingo and whenever I hear the whistle (‘cos I’m usually stitching around the binding of a quilt rather than watching), I just say ‘Offside’ with conviction.  Amazingly, I’ve been right on many occasions – Himself is really quite impressed!!!!

    If you ever run out of thread, you have a promising career as a Travel Agent! — *LOVE* your Pics! The Quilts too! — And, I wouldn’t doubt that some small bit a fabric and thread is likely lining some Gull nest..?

  • What almost impossibly blue sky. The cottage looks so sweet, I love the way so many of, even the closest to the lane houses, have a little cobb wall. Lovely to see the Elna Lotus having an airing too

    You had wonderful weather in Cornwall! Do you always stay in the same holiday cottage? Sarah x

    Always the same village, but we move around with cottages. The latest one was quirky but we probably won’t go back to it again as it was difficult to access the sun deck. Bay View cottages are out favourite, with their view overlooking the harbour. No 3 is v good and No 7 – they have to accept dogs! No 6 is one of the best and No 14 – but no dogs. No 14 is huge. Let me know if you’re thinking of going and I’ll send you some more ‘truths’!
