Back home...for a little while!

It's been a hectic few weeks all in all....

...but I've really enjoyed meeting lots of lovely people...

...making new friends...

...and catching up with old ones!

Anyways...

...after my sessions with the York Guild...

...I shifted a bit south to West Bridgeford to do another talk and workshop.

Again, we were treated to a visit by Christine Poole and her husband David...

...who just happened to be set-up on the same little campsite as moi!!



The talk was very well attended, and the workshop was really delightful!!



Some gorgeous work was done......







Well done the ladies of West Bridegford!! :-)

...and thanks to Kath Owen for arranging it all!

After the workshop, I belted back to the Gladdyvan and got hooked up so that I could head-off to Lincolnshire for a workshop with the Lincoln Guild.

This was being taught by Dee and Joan, and the subject was Medieval Illuminated letters using tissue and tea bags!! What fun!!!

Here are some samples...



The Lincoln EG are having a very special event day on the 11th April - being held at The Hardy Building, Bishop Grossteste University in Lincoln. Go along if you can, there will be lots to see and you'll be sure of a great welcome!1



After a tiring couple of weeks away, I had a few days to relax before going down to Cardiff to my very own quilting group "Cardiff Quilters" to give a talk at the AGM (which I actually managed to miss completely because I thought it was in the afternoon not the morning!) Still, I got there in time for lunch and my talk went ok (I think?!).

I have some time before my next away-fixture, and I fully intend to make the most of it!!

I'm off to take some "medieval inspiration" photos over the Easter hols...

...watch this space!1 :-)

Wow, that all looks like such fun. I got all excited reading about the Lincoln EG at Bishop Grot (I trained there many years ago) and then remembered I'm away that weekend...
