The surroundings are wonderful and it is great walking country. At the centre you can gain inspiration from the wild flower meadow........
......and rush into the workroom......
......to stitch it out. This is Chris drying out her water soluble stitching.
The food is wonderful, too and Peter the chef is so enthusiastic. He has a delicate touch and, while meals are delicious you don't feel too full. (Well only if you have second or third helpings!)
Eggs are supplied by the blonde bombshell and her mates.
Further inspiration was supplied by the cows passing the gate. They stopped to look at us and gave us a photo-opportunity with their leaf patterned hides, thanks to the shadow effect.
I used my time to explore the cutting gizmo that I have acquired for my Bernina. this is a dangly for my conservatory - deliberately twee. Cutting loads of motifs in one go was no challenge for the Bernina. I hope to play lots more.after the FoQ.
Here it is in place. The conservatory is finished and we love it but I haven't had time to sort out all the furnishings so you will have to wait until after the Festival of Quilts, next week. I am doing three talks over Thursday and Friday and I am being interviewed by someone for something at 2pm on Thursday. I think it is free, so come to the main stage and watch me make a fool of myself. See you there.
