What a wonderful week away I've had with my friends Helen and Linda, and 7 other quilters, in Yorkshire on a quilting course with Philippa Naylor. We stayed in a superb B and B, Highfield Farm, in Southburn, near Driffield (where we've stayed for the past couple of years too) - and we were all made extremely welcome as usual. Before I share some pictures of the quilted projects I made while I was away, I just had to show you a few pictures of where we were staying, and also some pictures of the delicious food that was provided by Highfield Farm as part of our course...
...my room, "Hutton", was very comfortable as you can see, and the view from my window was across open fields. It was so peaceful, and very relaxing. It was a shame I had to come home after just a week!...
...Highfield Farm is also the base for the Yorkshire Wold Cookery School - maybe I should have another holiday their to refine my cooking skills! The meals were all delicious, and we were lucky enough to have evening meals provided for us there as well as our breakfasts...
...lunches were provided by the staff at Highfield Farm too - we had a superb menu that ranged from pea and mint soup with blue cheese focaccia bread, parmesan crisps, beetroot crisps and vegetable crisps, to caramelised walnut and butter nut squash salad, prosciutto and melon salad, and Womersley vinegar potato salad. As you can see from the pictures, it really was yummy...
...we really were spoiled, and the puddings were absolutely delicious too - especially these Banoffee Pie puddings!! We were all very well looked after, and I shall look forward to going back there again next year - and maybe I can squeeze in a holiday there with Mr F too, as there are lots of places to explore in that part of Yorkshire.
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
