First are some shots on Holy Island or Lindisfarne and inside the old church which was hosting a flower festival celebrating the history of the Island.
This is the Castle on the island
A lovely view from the abbey ruins
The weather was brilliant and we did lots of walking -- and eating with the friends we were with!
The beaches are so quiet and beautiful - we are definitely going back again next year for a longer holiday.
Once back I have tried to get back into finishing off some WIPs - the red and white one just needs quilting and the little tumbler table cloth is finished. It's still very hot here in the UK - to our surprise so it's not the weather for quilting but I want to finish off the sampler quilt this week before I start the new Irish Rose - I spent yesterday cutting all the pieces for it
I found this lovely 30s style butterfly quilt on Pinterest - and I have started my version by hand with my 30s fabrics and have managed 4 so far
