I am a quilter living in Woodbridge, Suffolk who has made quilts since I was a teenager. I also ring bells! Both are great British traditions....I will try to feature some of my antique Welsh and Durham quilts, the quilts I make myself, my quilting activities and also some of my bellringing achievements. Plus as many photos as I can manage. NB: Double click on the photos to see greater detail, then use back button to return to the main page.

Autumn 2013

Happy Halloween! It's not celebrated as much in the UK as it is in the USA, but there are still parties taking place, and a bit of "Trick or Treat" activity. Luckily, Mischief Night has not been transferred across....

A neighbor up the street had these for sale, grown in their garden. I think turbo pumpkin should read turban squash?? Anyhow, I saw various people carrying away pumkins that they had bought. And the pumpkins stayed out overnight without being damaged....unheard of where I grew up.

These gourds were being sold as alien eggs - there were smaller gourds for sale as dinosaur eggs.....
These Chillis looked good, priced at 5 for £1. I used two in Saturdays meal and they were very hot! I have vivid childhood memories of unwittingly biting in to one of our neighbors hot peppers and being in great distress.....
