Short, But Sweet

It was more of a lunch together today but great see everyone after the Easter and Bank Holiday breaks and catch up on news.

After a bit of a dull start the day turn out to be sunny with blue skies if a bit windy.  I thought you might like to see a photo of the clematis 'Jersey Cream' in our garden, it has out done itself this year.


Amanda and Caroline arrived mid morning followed by Chris at midday.  Alison was not with us as they are having building work done on their house.  Amanda and Chris left after lunch and Caroline, mid afternoon.

We did not get any sewing done today.  Amanda showed us her growing collection of hexagons and Caroline was sorting out her Log Cabin Stars.

I had finished two quilt top samples for Needle and Thread, one using Jo Morton's fabric, Evergreen, Ember Reds and Toasty II and one of the Schnibbles patterns from Miss Rosie's Quilt Co called Decoy.

The second top is a Daisy Quilt, the daisies are cut using a Sizzix die,

For lunch,we had cold chicken, cold salmon and prawns and salad with a chocolate mousse for dessert.

Our cakes today were dark chocolate and raspberry muffins, using the recipe from the Lakeland book as a basis and a Victoria Sponge
