I am in UK at the moment visiting my parents for a long weekend. Arrived here on Thursday from a stormy France and found lovely warm weather. We were able to sit in the garden in the sun yesterday.

No pictures of my sewing for last night I am afraid but be assured that I was adding plain hexagons to the outside of my flower mat. Wine and chocolates to hand too!

Thank you Wendy for hosting.

Today we have been to a fabric shop with the tiniest area dedicated to patchwork. But that area is packed from floor to ceiling with fabric and other goodies.
Should you be in the Braintree/Dunmow area then Blake House Craft Centre is where you will find the fabric shop 'And Sew On' and you can get an excellent lunch in 'The Timbers'.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
