Charlecote Park

Upton House

On the way back back from FOQ we spent the day visiting two very different National Trust  properties, Charlecote Park, where the Lucy family have lived continuously for 900 years, and Upton House,  Art Deco home of Shell heir, Lord Bearsted who seems to have been a very good egg! I got something of the flavour of the man through reading his diary left out for anyone to peruse.

Rag Rug in the servants' quarters at Upton.

Pietra Dura table at Charlecote

And today I've completed two more
"Bonnie" blocks and am in the process of framing and quilting them and the previous two.
A lot of pieces in this

A lot of inset seams in this!
