More from the Welsh Quilt Museum

Some more photos from our day in Wales

Love these red's

This was a favourite and hanging in the hallway.

Janet Boltons work was on display too. 

After Lampeter we headed off for Jen's shop in Llanybydder. This little building is stuffed to the gunnels with quilts and welsh wool blankets. 
Linda just didn't just peer over the wall.

Lots of foraging went on too. 

We then headed for home and wish I could have shown the route the sat nav took us. I'm sure she took us on the scenic route.
That's it for today, tomorrow is another day with another adventure.

Welsh Quilt Museum

The next part of our Quilty weekend was to The Welsh Quilt Museum in Lampeter
What a absolutely fabulous exhibition entitled Early To Bed.

I loved everything about this exhibition which has a folk art theme. I could have taken many of these treasure's home with me. 

Gorgeous fabrics

Fabulous wool tailors quilt 

Loved this frame quilt
Caught on camera Linda

We we had to keep up our strength before going back in to soak up some more of this exhibition.. 

More to come but will be back soon.

Australian Guest

At last something worthwhile to blog about.
Linda from Quilts in the Barn a whirlwind few days with me last weekend. This post is heavy on the photos and will probably have to spread these over a few days. 
First stop Cupcake Cottons Burford, I then I drove around showing Linda lots of the amazingly beautiful countryside . 
 It just happened to be breast cancer awareness day at Cupcake Cottons and tea and cake was on the agenda. 

Amazing hollyhocks in Chipping Campden

Next day we headed for the Minerva Art Centre in Llanidloes to see the Turning Twenty Exhibition.

This fabulous tailors quilt made from wool is just so graphic.
Another lovely wool quilt.

Pretty ocean waves

We left Llanidloes and headed for Lampeter  and stopped for a few photos on the was quite overcast that day but something magical about the mist hanging over the mountains of Wales.

I've just become a Welsh Girl
That's a wrap for tonight will be back with the next leg of the journey in a few days.
