    Thank you so much for sharing those photos. I love the fabric walk in... and those quilts... wow. To think it's all down by hand is hard to wrap my mind around. And the 14 year old's pieces... imagine what she could do with an EQ6 and a sewing machine.

    Had to go 'back' to the museum, so interesting...read this again, lol...hmm, think that's a bit like: you make noise when your here...lol, I know it wasn't meant like that...read something else...can't believe what I type sometimes :shock: ...trip was just as nice, 2nd time around. Did Hans enjoy it? My hubby might go along for something like that if it was part of other things, but boy, the sighing and yawning and looking at his watch :roll: He'd get quite a work out, while I would just stand there with my jaw hanging :wink:

    About a month. All squares are together, now to assemble the quilt and quilt it and I'm revising it to be larger.

    I KNOW Terri meant it as a compliment - she LOVES my verbal, I'm sure! :wink:

    DH is very good at exhibitions - he was an architect and is very interested in design so he finds something in the quilts to interest him - he even recognises blocks sometimes - one day we were at a show and he suddenly went 'drunkard's path!' - and he was right! :wink:

    Love K x

    to be sure, since he went to the museum with you, he is not only taking an interest in your hobby, I am sure he is very proud of the stuff you make and that you are teaching the kids. Now, when you gonna be done with them thar onions and taters? I'm getting a little :mrgreen: :lol:

    Hi C, chitting is setting the tatties in a light place for the little sprouts to grow before you put 'em in the ground. Not everyone does it but I think it gives 'em a head start to point their noses out in the air before they get covered in soil! The kids LOVE veg! They'll eat everything and in summer if we're outside and they want a snack I just turn 'em loose in the veg plot and say 'go graze!' - they'll even eat brussel sprouts straight off the plant! I think it really helps that they see stuff growing, eggs and meat from chickens and we've raised 4 pigs so far. Having a rest this year cos we got pork coming out of our ears! If kids grow up with it, they take it as a natural part of life. Although when we got our first pigs, Joey who was about 4, thought they'd 'lay' sausages, like the chooks lay eggs! :lol:

    Dougal already had his name when I got him and it suits him so much, I kept it! :D

    ...nope, never entered my mind that you would sound hoity toity :lol:
    When I think of English women, Princess Diana is the first to come to mind. I so cried when she died. I think the whole world did. :cry:
    Now, bout those men, I knoooow they would cramp our style...don't know bout Hans, but Kenny???? he's always in too big a hurry, can't understand me when I get on a roll, (he's got two hearing aids), and got to keep him fed on time or he turns into a 'bar', (that's bear...he doesn't drink), lol...I loose track of time when having fun...so not much hope of having a hen party with wet blanket...we'll send them off somewhere for the day. :wink:

    My dog died the same day as Princess Di so I cried double. Hans isn't a big drinker either so no point sending em to a bar then!
