Blissful moments

Moment 1) Sewing my first quilt, yes, MY Quilt! I haven't quite got the required patience when the sewing machine goes a bit bonkers and starts to chew my work up but luckily my Fab Mum does.  I'm starting to piece it all together and the colours are B-E-A-Utiful together. I can't claim that the whole experience has been blissful but the standing back and seeing something you have created is!

2)  Looking at my sunflowers. Aren't they just so cheerful?
3) De-podding my home grown broad beans.  I love that the pods are all furry and squidgy.
4) BBQs! The smoky smell is divine as it wafts past. Mmmmm.
5) The sight of locally foraged cherry plums. They grow by our train station and the colours are incredible.
So many lovely moments. Summer is wonderful.


  1. What a fabulous quilt and this is your fist. Hope we can see it when it is finished.
    How true that Summer is wonderful especially as shown by your photos.

  2. What glorious photos! Love the quilt. You could use the mouthwatering colours of the cherry plums as inspiration for your next quilt!
