No more salad

It would be lovely to write of the blue skies of Summer but they seem to be hiding behind the clouds. Watching the weather forecast on Sunday evening it was obvious that Tuesday would not be a day for salads; time to think about soups and casseroles instead.

Poor Alison had a slow drive through rain to reach us and Caroline texted from The Lake District that they were "surveying the Langdale Pikes in gale force winds" before deciding to visit Lakeland Plastics instead! I hope the weather improves for the remainder of her holiday!

We had no specific plans for the day's sewing so all did our own thing as we caught up on our lives. Amanda is preparing to move house and soon she'll be living just around the corner, handy for coffee and the shop! Janet is thinking about her forthcoming holiday. Alison is collecting jam jars as she will be doing more preserving from the garden in the coming weeks. I was sharing photos of our forthcoming puppy.

Alison is hand quilting - beautiful blues and greens in this quilt - not much more to stitch

Janet continued preparing the next few blocks from The Farmer's Wife quilt

Amanda cut and prepared hexagons

I managed a few rows of knitting

Next week, we have plans ... you'll have to come back to see!
