Soul Sisters

Please excuse my poor attempt at regular blogging. Not sure that I have a suitable reason but the intention is always there and if you are still with me thank you for reading.

Back in February I received this lovely parcel from Sweden and there is no better reason than to wish somebody Happy Everything.


Inside was the most prettiest quilt in my beloved pinks and made by my wonderful friend Stina.

You can read more about it on her blog. Apologies here as I cannot get the link to work but if you google the address it will come up. Grrr!

I absolutely love it. The pattern is Soul Sisters by Cheri Payne Saffiote and we are indeed Soul Sisters.


Found a place to hang it too on my red hallway wall. Think it looks perfect there.


Daughter no.1 surprised me with this beautiful bouquet of tulips for Mothers Day back in March.


We went for a day out recently to North Devon and found ourselves wandering to the village of Clovelly. You need to pay to get in and it is not for the feint hearted. It is steep and cobbled but so worth the effort. It is so pretty. No cars. Everything gets transported up and down by pulling on crates


Happy Stitching
