Blogging has been a bit sporadic this summer...my apologies.
Lots going on - bindings being made, sleeves ready for quilts, piles of fabrics with sketches lay hidden in the spare bathroom cabinets, and new pain meds have me dreaming of quilting with Mark Harman (quilting...now I know either I am getting old or the meds are truly messing with me mind!)
Not much in the way of photos right now but while I was posting some to family I wondered what was I taking photos of the same time last year? (Photos are one of the few organized places in my life - (the photo of the hexagon quilt on the top of this post shows my "still missing from the move top....)
So in 2008 I was learning to sheer sheep in England...these three were bottle feed and very spoiled. Which also made it very easy to take photos of them. Could be three of the most photographed sheep in Enland (folks in the village just shook their head when they saw me walking down the road with my camera around my neck!)
July of 2007 has lots of English garden photos...I went to an open garden event almost every week. It was a great way to see the countryside and the gardens were gorgeous. The photo above was taken in a village around Beedon Hill in Worcestershire.The photo of the lavendar fields was taken only a few miles away from the gardens in the Cotswolds. I will always have some lavender in my garden...though never as much as I saw that day. They were just starting the distilling operations...
Finally in 2006 I spent the month of July in Massachusetts...this is the Light house in Scituate near our summer cottage.
Prior year's photo's are on my other computer and on disks in the other room...maybe I'm not as organized as I thought?! It was fun cruising the files today...but I'd best get back to stitching....
