New bundles of joy!!!! added to the webshop...
A delicious bundle of pink and yellow:

A combination of lovely pinks and yellows to be added this evening.  And another Bella bundle of oranges and lemons!

Please do visit and have a look......
Meanwhile, we are celebrating!!  It is our 29th wedding anniversary!!!  We are trying to recover from daughter no 1 moving into her new home and the loneliness she has left behind and the strange feeling of being just the two of us again!!  Maybe a glass of champagne might help!!

A trip to Albury, Surrey

Yesterday we had a day out!  After getting terribly stuck in traffic for two and a half hours, we arrived at the village hall in deepest Surrey!!  And what a lovely welcome....I must admit to having kittens on the journey, we were so late!!  Never mind,  the Guildford Quilters were a very friendly group and we had a really nice time.  I had been asked to give a talk about my longarm quilting business and take along my shop for some retail therapy!

Thanks so much to everyone we met...
As my parents are not far away, we made a quick trip to see them too which really made for a lovely day!

 Lunch eaten, we set off home to walk a very excitable pair of doodles who were delighted we were home!

Another package to send and a touch of sadness...

Pam from Florida was the winner in my giveaway on Lilysquilts....well done, Pam...the package is on its way....!!!

Just love those Bella fabrics!
It has been a busy week.  Eileen's quilt came off the machine and Heidi's quilt has replaced it!  Quilts coming in fast and orders on the shop beginning to happen!!  I am visiting Guildford quilters tomorrow to do a talk and sell some fabrics, so look forward to meeting the group.

I have been doing a little sewing when I can and trying out some new templates that I bought at FoQ...I thought this block might be a little tricky, but not really .... and I'm quite pleased how it turned out
This weekend we visited the wonderful Stowe landscape gardens in Buckinghamshire....Stowe is a private school, but the grounds are NT and open to the public.  There are wonderful buildings and lakes  to see and an amazing gothic house which is apparently a holiday home through the Landmark trust!!  Looks a little creepy to me!  You can see it on the hill in this photo...
Our eldest daughter came too as her boyfriend is back at home getting ready for their move to Newbury.....the visit was tinged with a fair amount of sadness in that she will soon move away from home to her own place and although this has to happen, it feels so sad at the moment!   Please tell me that I am not alone in this empty nest thing!!
Don't forget to check out my webshop.....I need something to keep me very busy right now!!!
Until next time....
