A day out, fabric, a book and flowers....lovely.

Today is my mother-in-law's birthday. Myself and a friend took her out for a coffee, a short walk and lunch. Notice there was more eating and drinking than walking.
We visited Woodbridge which is a pretty town not far from where I live. I took some photos of the river and Tide Mill. You can go inside the mill but I thought I would save this for the School holidays.
As you can see the weather was pretty poor for July. Please can we have summer soon.

These fabrics show my favourite colour combination at the moment. Turquoise and Pink.

I bought this book yesterday and when I got home I noticed the colours. They feature heavily in the quilt I am making. Did I choose it because I liked the description of the story or subconsciously for the colours?

I love fuchsias. These are in a hanging basket on the front of our house.

Bye for now, Maria.

Woodbridge is lovely, isn't it - I went once when visiting friends near Ipswich.
I love that pink and turquoise fabric - did you get it from Dots n Stripes? I've been looking at getting some more fabrics from there to make some more children's clothes.

Hello there, thanks for popping over to my blog and saying hello! I have bookmarked your blog so I can keep up with your activities...amazing that we live so close and decided to do that bag swap from US! I would have loved to have gone to Woodbridge on Saturday, my favourite yarn shop had an open day there, The Natural Dye Studio but we had a weekend in Devon with my daughter. I love pink and turquoise too, and those beautiful least they cheer up the dull weather here at the moment!
