A trip away!

I have not long been back from a trip to visit my In-Laws in Germany, with my DH. We drove,,, rather DH drove,,, all the way,,,apart from when we were on the ferry of course!! They live in the north west region near to the Teutoburger Wald, a forest/woods. And it is beautiful!!

These woods are basically on my In-Laws doorstep!!  They have a little woodland retreat,, actually in the woods,,,,

It is sooo quiet here,,, you can hear the noises of the woods,,, lovely!!!
On our return, I thought I'd better do some creating. At my quilt group, one of our members brought along a little 'Workshop bag' that she had made,,, and the rest of us wanted to make one too! Our group is only small, 12 members,, and we have christened the bag the 'Maybees' bag,, after the group!
What do you think??? The fabric is the "Quilts 1700 -2010 Liberty Art Fabrics for the V & A",, Stick Flower and Shells!
DH and I were out shopping yesterday, and he bought me this book,,,
I will  be making a quilt out of this book,,,, for those of you who have this book,, page 78,, but in reds and cream, not purple as in the sample!


  1. What a lovely place your in laws have Caz. Glad to hear you enjoyed your holiday.
    I'm loving the bag. You chose some very nice fabrics for it.
    The book looks good too.

  2. Ditto what Margaret said re the bag and your in-laws cabin. It looks very rustic and lovely :) Just perfect for a relaxing holiday,

  3. Looks like a great place for a holiday Caz. Love the bag and am trying to guess who it was who brought it along to show and tell! Thanks for your comment on my recent post - I had thought I might finish it just for myself so watch this space (or maybe not unless you enjoy watching paint dry!)
