Mays' catch up post

Lots going on , but first the stitching.

 Lesley Teares' Owl for Love Quilts . I loved stitching this and may do it again one day for myself. OK , who am I kidding , lol. I spend so much time doing charity stitching I hardly ever do anything for myself , and I have tons of charts and kits waiting , but hey , I can dream right ?

 One of our Love Quilts quilters is making a quilt for the therapy music cradle at a hospice that his daughter attends and asked for some music themed squares and this is what I came up with .
 LQ squares

  And , on the 21st May , we were very excited to go and see Shake Shake Go at Rough Trade in Nottingham . We have followed the band since we saw them busking in Nottingham a couple of years ago and have waited not so patiently for them to come to the area again. Last year they supported James Blunt on the UK leg of his tour , and have been doing lots of music festivals too. We all love their music and they are great people too . They stopped to chat after the gig and signed things for the kids, So a brilliant night . Sorry for the bad pics,I was more interested in enjoying myself.

A quick video for your enjoyment.

Thanks for dropping by ,
