Arriving back , it was time to post the 50th wedding anniversary quilt to Stephanie in time for the party for her parents at the Ritz Hotel in London... here is the finished quilt:

Now I am off to the south for daughter's birthday and a little light babysitting whilst cocktails are partaken with her sister, hopefully in very pretty dresses if the sun comes out at the weekend. Other parents are struggling to care for their families in our garden and yesterday there was a baby blackbird as big as it's mother, in the climbing hydrangea outside the sewing room window... no flight feathers, a big attitude and no manners, yelling and squawking for more worms NOW!
I hope you like the new banner for the blog. It took me all day to make it. I followed instructions from at least three very kind people who had put those instructions on the web for techno beginners like me. It is not perfect but better than the first one where the ribbon was not straight and the cotton reels wobbled off on their own agenda.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend and a chance to go on holiday too,
