I have finally finished this quilt I started in Cove in February. I left it most of the summer because I was busy with the garden.

I have been quilting at night but during the day, as it is now spring I have been using skills I learned at the age of 17 when I was an archaeological volunteer with 'LEMARGE' or Lower Medway Archaeological Research Group. Yes I have been using my 5" mason's pointing trowel to make small trenches for bricks for my new cold frame foundation. Lots of fun in the garden in the lee of the greenhouse.
More pictures will be coming once I have this project cracked!
