Norwich and the Norfolk Coast

We spent the weekend visiting friends in Norwich, which meant lots of inspiration but not much quilting. We did the tourist in Norwich thing on Saturday, complete with shopping and visiting the castle. We also visited an awesome Victorian garden... sometime I wish I had the patience for gardening! (at least with quilting, if I put it aside it doesn't do anything!)

We spent Sunday walking down the beach (my husband, the birthday boy):
More sewing and programming will be forthcoming!



  1. Hi Kirsten - thanks for dropping by and commenting on my blog - your work looks very interesting - it's always great to look at other people's perspective on the craft - I'm a great believer that there's no right or wrong way to do anything it's whatever way works for you. That's one of the best things about blogging you pick up all sorts of inspiration from so many sources

  2. Ahhh, what lovely photos. Makes me wish I were there peeking over your shoulder. :-) I couldn't help but laugh out loud at your gardening comment... this from a woman who's flower beds are overflowing with WEEDS!!!! lol You just can't keep ahead of them!

    Sue Nickels, one of the quilt teachers I took a class from recently, says she gets her inspiration for her quilts and quilting designs in the oddest places: hand carvings, gardens, etc. Did you see anything like that at Norwich? Keep your eyes open! :-)

  3. Sometime I'll do a post about embarassing pictures I have taken because they remind me of a quilting pattern!

    I was distracted by another idea in Norwich - it would be a gift for someone, though, so I can't leak it yet.

  4. My hair is terrible there. It had gained sentience and was trying to join the ocean.
