The house we're staying in is full of beautiful handmade quilts. I'm feeling very at home...

Friday night in Falmouth harbour: big sigh...

Binding nearly done...now, can I finish, get it washed and on the line before the thunderstorms arrive? ⛈

J U L Y we still have roses to pick, but the warmer, drier weather has made them slow down. The last of the alliums and the first of the agapanthus bridge the gap into late summer... #theyearinflowers2017

Well...I was looking in the cupboard of loveliness and happened upon my favourite #pamkittygardenfabrics and before I knew it, this had happened! Just trying it out for size... #fabricalwaysfits #cakestandquilts #pamkittygarden

Our Honeybees have a Hive 🐝
Yesterday @mrsknappers and I spent the entire day sewing and it was dee-lish!! The tutorial is now live on my blog and any contributions to the #welovemanchesteremergencyfund would be hugely appreciated... #freeupmyinsta

It's #freedomfriday on #freeupmyinsta and one of the big pluses of working from home is sharing my day with these two loons...

My lovely friend @jacki_nash has been making a Cornish version of the #toskyequilt! Isn't it fabulous!!! ⛱🐦🏠🗼⛵️

Morning ☀️ it's blue, blue skies here for the start of @allison_sadler_ 's #freeupmyinsta photo challenge! Today it's 'anything goes' (I'll be singing that for the rest of the day...)
Allison has written a terrific blog post about her reasons for posting. So here's my two-penneth! Firstly, Insta is full of the loveliest people. I work from home and you are all my mates 😊 I look forward having a cup of tea and a chat with you at break time! It used to be Antipodean lovelies in the morning, European chums at lunchtime and my North American friends at teatime. In real time!! Thanks to to the pesky algorithm that doesn't really happen any more 😔and I miss it. And Instastories, forgive me, but that's like writing a diary entry - a long one in some cases - and then ripping it out the next day (I don't know... maybe that's a thing). And I've already had a rant about the ugly adverts, so I'll step away from the microphone, apart from to say that I messaged Insta yet again about offering a subscription and they haven't got back to me (I know... shocking!) But time for some positivity!! I'm going to shut up and put up... because, lovely people in my phone, I so look forward to seeing what you're all up to. I've always been nosy...

Yesterday afternoon (our penultimate speech day ever!), which means summer has begun...big sigh...
