So we have had two FNSI's this month and I joined in again on Friday. I decided that this was the time to get a finish ticked off my list and so on Thursday I spent an hour or so cutting and interfacing all the pieces to make up my clamshell Sew Together Bag. This meant that on Friday I was ready to get the machine out of it's hidy hole and crack on. By the time I had had enough for the day I was to the point of adding the main zip. This I completed on Saturday afternoon and I now have a second Sew Together bag using the lovely Tilda fabrics.
Once again the bag went together like a dream, this really is a good pattern. And I do love the clamshells.
Many thanks Wendy for getting us together again.
Earlier in the week we visited Dunster Castle again. This time with friends who had not visited before and who were both very impressed with the castle and it's grounds. It is a while since I had been inside and it was nice to be reminded of this beautiful silk patchwork cover on one of the beds.
Poor lighting for conservation reasons.
It is dated 1830 and was made by three spinster Luttrell sisters. The Luttrell family owned the castle from the late 14th century.
We also discovered the recently restored 'Dream Garden' which was originally laid out in the early 1900's by another member of the Luttrell family. I have often peered through this gate and wished I could get inside!
This time the gate was open and it was lovely!
I do love that gate!
That's all from me for now, have a great week.
