enjoyed your summer? Is it over yet? Well, who knows, but certainly the nights are drawing in, blackberries are ripening in the hedgerows, the landscape is turning from greens to golden harvest fields then browns as the land is ploughed in steady rows again.
I’ve been busy, making quilts, crocheting, Dollying and jaunting around the south-west most weeks and totally reorganising my now-aptly-named ‘studio’! I spent every single penny of my holiday pocket-money on fabrics and yarns – I must have visited almost every fabric & wool shop from Barnstable to Bangor!
There are so many photos to share but I’m going to start Ta-Dah-ing with a quilt I finished in the afternoon sunshine earlier on today …
I’ve become completely hooked on patchwork and quilting – a whole baker’s dozen of them finished since the start of the school holidays!
There’s so much to show and tell, but I’m going to leave it there for now and treat myself to an online jaunt over to Wendy’s Handmade Monday, later on this evening and meet up with some old buddies and their makes.
Pop by soon – I’ll show you Misty Morning, my magical crochet blanket next, probably tomorrow.

at a few projects that will make it to my stall tomorrow (Sunday) at the Winchester Art & Design Market …
I’ve been busy and finished quite a few new designs for tomorrow … a dolly cradle all newly refurbished and with a delicious patchwork quilt and wool blanket – not to mention a lace pillowcase and new sheets; a Christmassy snowflake cushion and for those who don’t want to miss the boat – a hand quilted patchwork cushion!
As there’s a chill in the air, there are my new hotties …
Each has a microwaveable heat pad inside and the covers are all quilted so you can cuddle up and keep your toes warm!
It’s been a wonderful day here in the South, today – bright clear skies and the birds were singing their hearts out until dusk settled. The sky is full of stars and I do hope that we’ll be able to enjoy another bright winter’s day tomorrow.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend …
