My Birthday present (which incidentally was June) consisted of a weekend in Southwold - we stayed at a lovely B & B and had the most enormous breakfast on Sunday.

The weather was fabulous and oh Southwold is magical.

Lunch was spent watching Morris Dancing then we strolled along the prom - in seventh heaven with all the beach huts

Afternoon tea on the Pier - then Fish & Chips for supper - oh lovely.

This beach hut is for sale at the bargain price of £40,000 a mere snip eh!! No door, no window and all rotting it is the piece of sand that is so expensive.

I adored these two of them were named Victoria & Albert.
It was a super birthday treat and next year he will have to come up with another good idea!!!!

Caroline's crazy quilt cushion - yeh I have finished it at last - I now have to make a matching one in pink's and purples for her - so must get going. Also got a friendship braid quilt to finish for her ready for the winter.

I started this ages and ages ago so am pleased to be able to say it is ready for her. She has actually given up asking for it now so I should have brownie points!!!!!

Pampered fishes - hey look at our fishes one month on - the plants are growing beautifully - the fish are so spoiled and know when they are going to be fed and love the cubes of frozen foods - they are not quite so good in my G & T not nice to have floating shrimps in that. Rob has had to do some gardening - now we decked the back garden as he doesn't like gardening, but he has to keep these trimmed and neat now!

But aren't the colours of the plants lovely.

Last night was our monthly Aston Quilters Group at Art & Stitch and good fun was had by one and all - we were putting together a stained glass christmas tree - Liz & Barbara were so badly behaved we banished them outside and they had to peer through the windows - actually tracing the outline on their materials - we did have a laugh!

Above some of the part finished items, we will finish them next month.

Look at my pretty flowers - Saturday Gina Ferrari came to Art & Stitch and showed us how to make these pretty flowers with Tyvek it was a great day we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and made flowers, seed pods and beads.
I have bought some Tyvek and plan (if and when time allows!) to make poinsettas for Christmas - at least they will not drop all over the table then!!!
