Sample and new magazine

Hello all.  Hope you're keeping nice and warm in this drab damp weather.
Well.  As you know I'm a fan of sampling before I make a piece. 
So here is the starting point for a sample - its very yellow.  
I promise to show it you when I've made some progress. 
Whilst at the Festival of Quilts I subscribed to a new magazine called Love Patchwork and Quilting and issue one has now landed.  It's great to see more contemporary fabrics being used.  If you get the chance do have a look - here's a little preview.


Promise to post again soon.

Holiday

Hello all.
Apologies for the lack of recent posts, but we've been on holiday.  So, I thought you might like to see some photos of my holiday.
The beaches in Tenby were amazing.

  
So it was great for a paddle.
We had a really lovely meal at the Ocean Restaurant.

On our way back we stopped in Hereford at a really great b&b called No 21. It was relatively close to the centre of Hereford so when we'd parked up we walked into Hereford to look at the cathedral.  I knew it would be interesting to look around, but it was even better than I expected.  If you ever get the chance, do go.
As there was an ordination service taking place we started with a cuppa and a sit down in the cloister garden.

We then went to the museum where the Mappa Mundi is on display.  Obviously I couldn't take any photos there.
After the service we did look around the cathedral - here are some photos.  If you do go, have a look at the textiles, there are lots scattered around the place.
So, now I'm back at home and hope to get back to being creative again very soon.
Take care all and promise to post again soon.
