A few days in Devon

We've just got back from a few days in North East Devon, and I've got loads of photographs to share. But they need sorting out a bit.

However, I've just realised that we're at the end of May (and how did that happen so quickly?) and I haven't got much to show for this month. I did finish this tiny runner after playing with the embroidery function on my new machine, which worked quite well. And then I played with the BRS foot, though I need loads more practice with that. It just fits onto the window sill on the landing, so I didn't just keep it as a practice piece but finished it off properly.

And while we were away I finished Block 3 of Down in the Garden, so for once I'm ahead of myself since Block 4 hasn't arrived yet.

You have shown some very pretty work...really like the small runner in the purple and green.

Last day of May - where has the month gone - in fact, we are nearly half way through the year...time is sure going fast.

I knew it couldn't be long until you were embroidering something. The table runner looks very nice, not like practice at all. Glad you are finding lots of time to travel.

The table runner is lovely. Such a pretty choice of fabric and color. I bet you have an ever increasing list of things you want to try out with your new machine. Your down in the garden is so pretty, love the colors in it.

I LOVE your BOM! Did you pick the fabrics yourself? It looks so very much like summer.

This is just so beautiful. I love the new spring look of your blog. Beautifully done, Amanda.
