A Shropshire break-away and Lingen Stitchers...

Got home yesterday after having a delightful break away in Shropshire.

Stayed just outside Craven Arms on a lovely camping and Glamping site - Greenway Touring and Glamping Park...

so that we could poke our noses into a number of English Heritage sites...

...and I could do my workshop with Lingen Stitchers.

Visits were made to Wroxeter Roman Town...



Stokesay Castle...



Much Wenlock Priory





Buildwas Abbey...where I found some lovely medieval floor tiles!! :-)





and Ludlow Church where I photographed all the Misericords.






 (Wouldn't fancy settling my backside on top of the last one...might get bitten!!)


The workshop with the lovely Lingen Stitchers went very well indeed!!









Everyone got stuck in to printing then stitching...

...and they have to finish the pieces in time for their exhibition over the August Bank Holiday weekend!

The Gladdyvan will go back into dock tomorrow...

...then I have to get myself into gear and catch-up with things that got left behind whilst gadding about!!

Have a great holiday weekend...
