There’s been quite a lot of quilting – the mixed weather has suited me just fine.  I’m always happy to plan and cut out indoors if it’s drizzly, and then bask in whatever sunshine there’s been either with my sewing machine out on the patio or with my feet up in my outdoor rocking chair stitching around a binding. Lazy but productive days.

The children have been here, taking it in turns to stay inbetween house-moves (for them, not me), and holidays.  It’s been a good summer.  Whilst I’ve been away at shows, dogs and duck have been cared for by visitors, family and friends.  Shows have been a new venture for me which I’ve enjoyed enormously – even though it’s a real challenge to organise absolutely everything – stock, livestock, orders and ME!

My scrappy bunting has attracted loads of attention!

I’ve had trips out and about with J2 and his lovely Italian girlfriend, yesterday we jaunted to the west country and Gold Hill in Shaftesbury was bathed in golden late afternoon sunshine – simply lovely.

I’ve returned home on so many days, pleased to be back, tired and peacefully happy.  My daughter C is a great motivator – “Just do it, Mum, you’ll be fine”.  She’s right, of course!  I’ve been fine and really enjoyed the challenges and buzz and meeting so many new people at summer shows.   Both the boys organised an epic travel adventure to south-east Asia which took the whole of July.  I was so pleased they went together, got on well and had a wonderful time.  I was even more pleased to have them back. Where next????

There are projects happening here at home.  The builder arrives on Monday and I’ll keep you posted, without too many of the gory details.  I’m sure there’ll be so much happening every day which I’m quietly dreading, but the end result WILL be so worth it!  I have plans … and an aiming for the end result – hiccups along the way will be dealt with!

Hope you’re enjoying the good old British summer if you’re here, and a heatwave if you’re elsewhere.

Take care

    I always love all your quilts, but my favorite in this bunch is Breeze! That orange and turquoise are so happy! Glad your summer is going well. Ours has been a little on the hot side, but at least there is no snow!

    I’m glad you are having a good summer. It does sounds as if you have been very busy. Your stall at all the shows looks so pretty, and your home looks lovely, I like your button rug too! Hope you don’t have too much disturbance with the builder,it will be exciting to see the transformation! Sarah x
