I love patchwork and quilting; I love learning new techniques and perfecting the old ones, but most of all I enjoy passing on what I have learnt to others. The most important thing is that we all have loads of fun!

Easy on a Sunday morning....afternoon and evening

Sunday - Sewing again this morning.

The ladies are enjoying their hand sewing; they can sit out in the sun / shade and just pop back indoors when they need to press seams or cut out more fabric.
Progress is not as quick as machining, but is more relaxed and 'chilled out'.

Lunch was at a restaurant in a trout farm.
As we arrived, there was a chap scooping trout out of a holding tank to take into the restaurant for today’s lunch. Now that’s what I call fresh!

We ate outside, of course, and the restaurant is on a little island surrounded by streams of trout swimming by (and ducks and geese wandering about).
You have to walk through the trees and over little wooden bridges to get to your table – very quaint.
There were a few meat/vegetarian dishes on the menu, but we all chose fish, fish and more fish - freshwater and sea fish - washed down with sparkling wine and followed by pistachio semifreddo.

Back up to the villa; a 30 minute siesta and then sewing again into the evening, accompanied by wine and nibbles.

Gill is on the third pocket for her workshop bag.
Pat has done about three-quarters of her Mariner’s Compass.
Collette has finished the picket fence for her Umbria scene and has started on the pine trees.
