Last week was our half term week and at the risk of becoming scarily predictable, we headed down to Northumberland to the cold coast for a family holiday. It was definitely the worst weather week we have had there, but it didn’t seem to matter. The children enjoyed the familiarity of returning to the same known place and we got to relax, visit bookshops (well, actually only one fabulous second-hand bookshop, Barter Books in Alnwick) and go for bracing walks/jogs.

Still, the week was a great chance to experiment and try different settings. Here are some of the better ones. There are lots more pictures of the sea, but I thought after the post the other week, you would be more interested in these.

At the end of the week, we headed up to Edinburgh, where I spent a delightful Saturday with Thistle Quilters. They were a wonderfully friendly group and I had a great time showing them some of my Unsung Muses work, which had travelled down to Northumberland specially with me and then sharing my paper pieced bowl techniques.
