Village view


Only have a few minutes to post today. Yesterday we walked up the hill in back of our village and this time I remembered my camera. There were bluebells everywhere and Breedon hill across the way had so many fields of rafe in bloom it looked like someone had slashed it with a flouresant yellow high-lighter!


Every time I come close to starting a quilt inspired by the colors of the fields around me the fields totally change colors! Mother Nature is so much faster with the paint brush than I am.
I am also excited because I found a Quilting and needlework shop up in Evesham which is only 15-20 minutes away on a very easy road. I was able to get the linen I needed for the sampler and picked up a teacozy kit as well. DH was with me so I didn't have too much time to look around. I think I may head up there in the next week to check out the town.

Oh, how peaceful! As for the countryside constantly changing colors -- well, that's just an excuse for a series of quilts -- one that reflects the changing seasons! (evil, aren't I?)

Incredible pictures. I know I've said it before - but you are so lucky you get to live there for awhile!

Lovely picures, I know what you mean about the colours changing so fast.

Oooh Evesham is almost striking distance from me...is it a good enough shop for a day trip? and if so can I have details please.

Every time I visit the UK I can't wait to get back to my quilting to reproduce what I've seen in the colors that surround me.

Bluebells and beech trees - you really do know how to make a girl homesick don't you! Wet and mis here today after having had glorious 3 weeks. Typical 1st May!
