A few photo's of my gaden it is looking so pretty at the moment, this maybe our last summer here as our house goes up for sale shortly we are downsizing, we have had 15 special years here but life moves on and I am excited about my next house which I have'nt found yet.

We had a really great day at the Quilt Show, a good journey to Malvern through lots of beautiful countryside. Our first visit was to the Ladies bathroom which always has a queue so you have to stand with legs crossed, then a large coffee whilst sat in the lovely sunshine watching all these chattering ladies walking by it's great to see the happiness on their faces as they aticipate what is to come when they get through those doors. There was a lovely array of quilts which we spent much time gazing at, I loved the miniature quilts they told such stories and all of them were so accomplished. We then hit the stalls, oh my goodness! all that fabric it is just brilliant, there is a stall called "Worn and Washed" where the fabrics are all old clothing and sheets which have been washed and and cut and made into jelly rolls and packs that make a complete quilt we love this store and spent lots of time sighing and buying, it was very busy and lots of these sweet older ladies know how to use their elbows but all in all we had a wonderful day finishing up with an ice cream cone with a chocolate flake 'Yummy!'

Hello Friends, tomorrow Kathleen and I are off to Malvern Quilt Show, we are excited and looking forward to a good day out, it's always a lovely show and is in such a lovely setting, we can't wait for our first cup of coffee sat surrounded by beautiful views of the hills and we love to watch all the ladies parading by chattering like magpie's because they are so excited and we always look out for the lovely bags people have made there are some beauties. I will post some pictures when we get back.

Busy Busy

Hello, this is a picture of my Mum when she was about 80, she was a very brave lady who suffered with a lot of painful joints but she kept on her feet until the last week of her life, she died when she was 93 yrs old the last words she said to me were "Think of me sometimes" well I do think of her often and I still miss being able to tell her things that are happening in my life, as you can see she loved flowers and always had baskets hanging outside her door, this was a flat on the ground floor of a small block and I can remember standing in her lounge and looking out at a family of ducks, she had started to feed them and every day the mother duck would come along with her babies following in a line and she would tap on the window to tell my Mum "Hey we are here and we would like something to eat" it was comical to watch.
Kathleen and I have been for our weekly big shop, we had a good day, I then came home and proceeded to plant lots of plants and I still have'nt finished, I hope to finish them tomorrow weather permitting, I am now going to put my feet up.
