Here comes Summer

What a difference, the sun is shining, the sky is blue and it is 27 degrees on our porch this afternoon. 
But I have two finishes to show you, so I have come into the cool of the study so I can post these:
First of all I have finished the "Seeds of Time" quilt and it is now with Carole at Butterfly Quilters so she can cover it with a close vermacelli design:
Our black cat Bosun loves this quilt!
And I have today collected my latest framed cross-stitch:  I am delighted, it is so pretty and I feel the dark rustic wooden frame sets it off perfectly:  not sure where to put it yet, but I'll find room somewhere!
On one of my previous blogs I showed the little fieldmouse eating from the bird feeder outside my kitchen window:  well we now have another frequent uninvited guest:
I wondered why the nuts were disappearing so quickly!  He must think his luck's changed!

Well, I am off back to sit on the porch, and shall do some unpicking of that quilt - not my favourite pastime, but will pour myself a large glass of ginger beer with lime cordial and put on some music - I have just purchased a great CD by Carlos Bonell, Magical Mystery Guitar Tour - he is playing Beatles songs on the classical guitar, it is great!  Perfect for a sunny summer's day!
Cheers everybody - thank you for visiting my Devon Life.


  1. Your quilt is gorgeous - I'm not surprised that Bosun wanted to sit on it!!! My cat Tom has a similar love of sitting in the middle of projects. Jx

  2. Beautiful quilt and cross-stitch finish!

  3. Your quilt is gorgeous and so is your framed cross stitch. I am new to your blog and have enjoyed seeing your lovely photographs.
