The end of July saw another reveal in our Mini Mania Challenge Group.
Our subject was Seminole Patchwork
No sewing has taken place yet
We have had the lovely Christine and David from Kids Quilts staying with us for a few days of rest and recuperation, after a 30 hour trip up from New Zealand.
Festival of Quilts and I am off there to
We let them acclimatise a little before a very relaxed day trip up to the lovely city of York
|The Minster from the city walls|
|The beautiful Minster that too 250 years to build!|
The weather was kind, with much sun but a lovely breeze to keep us cool. Our visitors were amazed that they could touch a tower from the original castle that dates back to 107AD !
|perfect spot to eat our ice creams|
|The station is very "Harry Potter"ish|
|ringing the church bells!|
And included a visit to Foxton Locks
A run of 10 locks to raise these narrow-boats 75 feet up a hill
|and of course - had to have a go!|
So now to bed to have a good night before heading off to Birmingham for the set of of the Kids Quilts stand ready for the show to open on Thursday.
