  Mostly quilt, increasingly knit, sometimes travel & a smattering of 🇬🇬

If you ever find yourself in Oman, @qais3752 will without doubt be the best and kindest tour guide you will ever meet. Thank you for your friendship 👍 #visitoman

I’ve finished another #guernseywrap (don’t look at that hashtag...you’ll only realise how off the charts my styling is) with random #dropspuna yarn.
Can be worn in all manner of ways.
And even makes a comfy seat.

Soy Amado No.161.
Taken in the veggie patch.
Because I have every intention of doing another quilt photo in the same spot in a few months.
To hopefully mark a total transformation.
Because this year the veggie is taking second space to flowers 🌺
As my expectations are as high as my arches 😬🤞🏼#cuttinggarden #soyamadoquilts #veggiepatch

Soy Amado No.160 is in the #germanundergroundhospital - the largest structural reminder of the consequences of the WW2 occupation in the Channel Islands. #soyamadoquilts #guernsey

Soy Amado No.159.
In the garden.
Because it’s too windy.

Force 7 winds outside call for a (not padded) little white cell for my finish of the cover pattern from @kim_brackett ’s book -,#scrapbasketbounty. Made totally from #annamariahorner fabrics which totally make me happy.
And Tambourine has arrived in the house (thanks @alewivesfabrics) and it’s up there with Pretty Potent for most favourite AMH line ever. Totally feeling very inspired to make more Quilts I Don’t Actually Need. #scrapquiltsarethebest #quilting #quiltersofinstagram #therearecountlessquilthashtags #whoknew

I never even knew @vegepod was a thing until @lizfromshush got one and then middle age envy kicked in and I thought they were a really good idea. I do have a veggie patch but this is just a more compact version right by your back door, completely protected from the elements and pests and self-watering. Plus you attach a hose to it and get a fine mist spraying over your veg. Sadly, that excites me. Greatly.
I completely assembled it by myself - both the Vegepod and the stand and I only swore once and broke two finger nails in the process. The step-by-step assembly videos are invaluable, especially when you discover you’re not the only one still saying ‘said the actress to the bishop’.
I think it’s a really clever concept and they deserve to do well. #vegepod

Soy Amado No. 156. The calm before Storm Freya. Now they’re being named, it sounds so much more dramatic than ‘a developing area of low pressure coming off the Atlantic.’ 🤔#soyamadoquilts #guernsey
PS. Yes I know it’s upside down 🙄 #nofilter
