A wonderful weekend in Scunthorpe!! (WARNING - lots of piccies!!)

We've had a really wonderful time up here in the North East of England...

....and a lovely couple of days with the ladies of the Scunthorpe Branch of the Embroiderer's Guild.

I did a talk on Tribal Textiles and how they have inspired my stitching....

...followed by tea and chocolate cake!! :-)

Yesterday was "Workshop Day"...

...where we played with printing blocks during the morning...













... and then stitched some Amulets in the afternoon.


















After a lovely few hours...

...I went back to the Gladdyvan...

...put The Man in The Van...

...and went off to see "Julian's Bower" (Recommended by Julie - Thanks Julie!!)

...a grass-cut maze overlooking the confluence of the Trent and Ouze.



The Man decided to walk around following the path...




...while I took in the view. :-)




We've never been to this part of the country before....

...but I hope I get invited back...

...soon!!
