Bishop Burton Summer School 2019

I had a wonderful time with the ladies of Yorkshire & The Humber (plus a few who sneaked in from the N.E and N.W Regions!!)......at Bishop Burton College.

Plenty more Japanese Inspiration was flowing around...

...and many beautiful pieces were to be found around the tables!

It was a weekend of lively chat...

....information sharing....

.....lots and lots of laughs....

.....Haiku....

...and a Winky Wonky Donkey.

Go on.........clicky the linky dinky winky wonkey donkey!!! :-D

(No doubt this was the reason for the sign as you walked from the residence to the restaurant and art rooms)




There were many stencils done...




....Semamori...





...and Sashiko stitching.....










panels...




...and books...





Thanks for a lovely time....

....and see you again in 2022 for Broderie Glazig!!
