Just a note

Just a quick note to let you know what we have been up to this week. I'm afraid there are no photos as there were only a few of us - this maybe the case over the next couple of weeks.

Caroline was unable to come and may not be able to make the next few weeks as she is looking after her parents-in-law.

Alison had other plans.

Chris popped in for an hour with her puppy Berry. Our cats, Pippa and Fizz were curious over the little bundle of black and white fur.

After Chris left, Amanda arrived in time for lunch, jacket potato with tuna and salad, with apple crumble and ice cream for dessert.

After lunch, Amanda was cutting our templates for a mini workshop at Guildford Quilters.

I was making more Farmer's Wife blocks or rather I was unpicking and re-sewing a block which seemed to take all afternoon!

Postcard from Normandy

Hi All,

We are having a lovely time. A very nice cottage.  The weather is beyond belief.

We went to the medieval town of Dinan on Thursday to see the market and stopped at the gardens of Chateau La Ballue, which we had to ourselves.

Friday we went up the west coast towards Granville. Andrew took photos of  Mont-Saint-Michel, and then onwards to Coutances to a quilting shop!! We stopped at Chateau de Gratot on our way back.

Today we went up the other side of the coast towards Barfleur, and then followed the coast road down to Utah Beach and Sainte-Mere-Eglise.

Tomorrow we are going to Mont-Saint-Michel.

So far I have finished one book and complete the cross stitch I have working for ages.

See you all soon.
