A weekend away

Back to real life after two days of sewing with the ladies half-way up a mountain: such a treat!

Exhausted and ready to bed now, but whirring machines are still in my mind, with mountain views and endless amazing food. I must write it up before it all just blurs, but not now. Instead, here is a little teaser of what I finished, in Ms G’s perfect chicken-filled garden.

They were obviously very intrigued by the whole sewing experience as they kept trying, at times successfully, to come into the house. “No chickens in the house!”, Ms G would regularly shout. But how can you restrain a lady who wants to learn to quilt? They’ll find another way in, I am sure. They are clearly up to something, plotting, planning, pecking.

Happy pecking! JJ
