Devon Garden Party for Quilters

Well this is a good start! what a beautiful spot,quite complicated directions, then I realised I had started to read Lizzies quilt instructions!! after some very pretty roads and tiny streets on the estuary we knew we were in the right place when we were greeted by these chickens ! has anyone got the pattern??? I love Chickens ..these are rather superior birds in hand dyed fabrics
Sue Spooner textile artist,maker and gardener supreme invited " Franglais " to join her and two quilting groups for an afternoon in the garden and wonderful Devon cream tea....these girls know how to treat themselves!

As you see the weather was glorious and we were able to sit in these gorgeous gardens and there were some wonderful works in progress to enjoy amongst these talented makers
"Franglais" was shown off to it's best and provided some entertainment and hopefully these groups will attend our other textile fairs now they have had a taste.

After a glorious and most enjoyable day we enjoyed Sue's warm hospitality and had a lovely evening watching the sun go down and talking textiles of course
Can we really call this work!
