Quilters' Guild Area Day

 At Fleggburgh.
That's in East Norfolk, for you foreigners..
 A jolly good time was had by all.. 40 people (mostly not Guild members, but that's how you recruit new ones, surely),  made modern Cross blocks with Heather, then Noughts (spots and circles) with me,  interpolated with lunch, teas, coffees, cream cakes, soup, sandwiches, raffles, and a competition..
We don't have a speaker, too static, and pretty costly for the amount of amusement derived..
We also displayed Modern and Contemporary quilts, including the Journal Quilts above
 And shopping, of course
 Working hard before lunch..
We provide soup-and-sandwiches lunch, not least because I think it's sad to see quilters eating soggy sandwiches from crumpled paper bags during the lunch break.. I think it's nice to feed people, and it's surprisingly cheap..
More hard work.. Sadly, I didn't get to make an image of the finished products, but I know all had a great time and went home with new skills....

Hooray, ducks are out again!

First brood of the year.. 10 ducklings this morning (and one very cross mother duck, as we were mowing the yard)

Light and Shade

In the morning, the mist takes the landscape away
In the sunshine, the gargoyles grin
