Last week we had a few days away on the south coast visiting Winchelsea, Rye and Hastings. It was our first visit to this part of the coast line. There are two gardens in this area that we had always wanted to explore Sissinghurst and Great Dixter. We have seen both on TV and in magazines many times.

Since we’ve been back I have started to quilt the Christmas tree skirt. A long arm quilter would be great as trying to manoeuvre the quilt on my domestic machine is very difficult in such a small space. Doing a traditional 1/4 inch away from the seams and a stitching in the middle of each section.
