Holiday round up

There will be beach holiday photos later on...... but first and most importantly the holiday sewing round up.
While I have been here this week I have been helping Tracy make all her entries for the local village horticultural and handicraft show.  She has made.......

A Quilt as You Go zippy pouch.  Thank you to Trudi for all the wonderful fabrics that have gone into making this.

An apron.  Thank you to Moira for the loan of the pattern

A notebook cover.......

And while she has been busy, I have not sat around.  No, I have put all the amazing scraps that various people have given me to good use and created a quilt top.

If you look closely, many of you will see fabrics that you recognise, as so many kind people have given me their off cuts and scraps.

It's not perfect, but I am loving this quilt top so far.  I am thinking of rainbow binding.

It's not been all sewing

Porthcurnick beach - and 'The Hidden Hut' (as featured in the Telegraph's 30 best restaurants by the sea)
