Here we are again, another month has gone by. Today started as a damp drizzly morning turned into a lovely sunny day, so maybe summer has not gone yet.

Alison was the first to arrive followed quickly by Amanda who was looking after a friend's ten month old baby boy.

As usual, we started with tea and coffee, together with Tea Bread(this recipe came from an old advert for PG Tips) together with shortbread Scottie Dogs, that Alison had  brought back from Scotland.

Caroline must have smelt the tea as she arrived before we had finished our first cups.

Then we had two special visitors, Alison's daughter and grandson, who was two months old today. He is so cute.

A quick phone call from Chris saying she had been delayed, but she arrived soon after.

Next we had an exchange of 'postcards' as both Amanda and Chris had been away on holiday.

After cuddles all around Alison's daughter and grandson left before lunch and while Amanda's small charge was having a nap we had lunch.  

We had jacket potatoes with Tuna and salad, and apple, blackberry and rhubarb crumble with Greek yoghurt and creme fraiche.

On the sewing front, Caroline was stitching the blocks of her Bow Tie Quilt, the fabric is Sweet Serenade by Basic Grey from Moda.

Chris has a pile of hexagons made using a Kansas Trouble range called Vine Creek, also from Moda.

Alison was hand quilting a tablerunner, the centre fabric was made using a mini charm pack from Midwinter Reds by Minick and Simpson, again another Moda range.

I was cutting fabric to make some quilt samples for workshops that I will be doing over the next year at Needle and Thread.

Amanda did not manage any sewing today as she had her hands full looking after her friends baby, but she did have a show and tell, a giaffe height quilt.

Amanda left soon after lunch, followed by Caroline, and then Alison and Chris.

Until next time.
