British Quilt and Stitch Village

Hi everyone, hope you are well.  Seems ages since my last post.

During my bloggy tea break I have been up to all sorts of things, including a lovely holiday, more of which soon.

But thought I would start my return to blogland by sharing some photos from a lovely day out I had yesterday with my bestest friend Sue, her lovely daughter and my daughter.  We went to the British Quilt and Stitch Village.  I had never been to one of these events before so was very excited!

Sue, and our two daughters had their work on display - this is the work completed jointly by our lovely girls, we were so proud of them


They used batik and then embroidery, I think it is stunning.  Then of course we have Sue's awesome creations:

The work on display made me feel a bit intimidated if I'm honest !  I have included a few of my favourites below

And then of course there was the opportunity to add to the stash of fabrics, buttons and threads.... all to be put to good use when Sue and I embark on our next Monday evening project....

Well it is good to be back in blogland!  Hopefully will be back again soon...



  1. Looks like such a fab show - bet you were super proud of the girls, and Sue!

  4. That show looks fantastic! I love seeing art shows. Your girl's work is stupendous! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  5. Congratulations to the girls on their work, and your friend. I loved that the younger entries to the competitions had less boundaries than those for the adults, kids really bring a fresh approach to the shows, and it's fab to see another generation being inspired to create! I entered a quilt in the show for the first time, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. :o)

  6. It is so inspiring to witness the beauty and creativity around us! Thanks for sharing your view of some of it and letting me celebrate with you, Helen :-)

  7. Hi Helen, I came here from Teresa Kasner's blog. This looks like a really interesting place to visit. I would love to go there. Thank you for sharing your photos. I'm your newest follower and looking forward to reading more. :)
