Lovely Lainston House …

Yesterday, I relived some of the happiest memories ever when I revisited Lainston House Hotel in the village of Sparsholt, near Winchester.  Happy memories – indeed – it’s where we held our wedding reception many years ago and it was a day I hold right up there amongst the best in my life!

Gosh, I was a skinny thing in those days!  The avenue of trees stretches down from the front lawn of the house with spectacular views of the Hampshire countryside.

I wasn’t just visiting yesterday though, a Family Food Festival had been organised and I was a stallholder …

Flora came too – on a cushion!

A stage had been set up on the front lawn and the Military Wives Choir and Military Band entertained the crowds.  On the South Lawn a demonstration area had been set up for cookery demonstrations throughout the day.  It was SO busy – everyone had a wonderful time and on my way home, I had a wander around the grounds and discovered a wonderful garden, planted since our special day with borders in full and glorious bloom …

Oh, it was a good day!  So many lovely people to talk to,  friends popping by to say hello throughout the day too.  Hope you had a lovely Sunday – we’re having a mini heatwave here at the moment and I’m cutting out quilt kits on the patio in the sunshine. What a way to spend a day!

I’ll be back with photos of my latest quilts, very soon.
