Perfect day to make a quilt

So, on the hottest day of the year, I decided to make a quilt.  Its nearly 5 o'clock and the thermostat in my living room says 29.5 degrees: all the windows in the house are open too.  It really is too hot to be outside so a quilt was the best idea, sitting in the breeze between the open windows

This is made with the Robert Kaufman fabric that came in my goodie bag from the retreat.  It is for my cousins little boy Dan, both of whom we are going to see in London on Tuesday

They are moving up to Sheffield at the end of this month so I thought a London quilt would be very apt

I havn't blogged since I got back home on Wednesday and after I met Sarah and Di on Tuesday.  What a fabulous day that was.  We met at Di's and spent the morning nattering and looking at each others creations.  Sarah had made zakka cases for each of the Hipbees

And she also gave us a little hipbee - isn;t it fantastic -  Made by Shannon who has an etsy shop Poppy Pocket: she is a very talented young lady! 

I was also lucky enough to receive this from Di: it's great and very 'on trend' too 

We had a lovely lunch and then went for a wander around Sedbergh - the weather was amazing and afterwards we sat outside in the sunshine.  Now, I didn't take a single photo: too much talking.  Di took her camera on the walk and snapped a few, so hopefully they will appear on her blog soon.

I was downloading the holiday snaps this afternoon: I love these two


  1. It was brilliant to meet up this past week. I got home this afternoon. It rained yesterday so we definitely has the best of the Cumbrian sunshine. I just love our hippy bees. Di x

  2. Neat idea staying indoors sometimes it's cooler than going outside. The quilt looks great, such fun colours! Glad to see you having fun with the girls =D

  3. Sounds like you had a great day together! jxo

  4. Nice to have a day with friends! I quilted today too. It was 37 outside so I stayed in ; )

  5. Great quilt! And so pleased you had a lovely holiday.

  6. love that quilt!! so glad you had a great time with the girls and a great holiday! x

  7. It was a great meet up! Your first holiday pic would be a great quilt inspiration photo for wavy stripes - now there's a challenge!

  8. I think it's fab you got to meet up with Di and Sarah :-)
