Shades of Summer

I've been on a blogging sabbatical since returning from our holiday in France. Various reasons really, the main one is my crafting mojo has been absent of late and I seem to have lost all inclination for stamping and getting inky. Quilting has become a bit of an obsession though and at the moment I'm finding it very therapeutic to sit and stitch. I've also been learning  free motion embroidery on my machine, which I have a feeling is going to be a real learning curve, and take a long time to master.
I completed the above quilt in France, and on my return three table runners, two bags and three cushions, which I will blogg later!

I know autumn has now set in but I would like to share some summer sun and the beautiful flora and fauna from our holiday in Normandy.

Unlike in the UK the grounds of many of the beautiful Château's are free and are a real pleasure  to wonder around.

These gorgeous flowers were photographed in the grounds of the beautiful Chateau Tourlaville.

Happy Crafting xxx
