Urchfont - the Last Post

This is the last time that our textile Group will meet at Urchfont Manor College - so sad. I have packed all the work up ready for home and am just taking five to do the blog. I've been working on my next Workshop on the Web article which is on metal flowers for dull spots in the garden. here is a petal - or possibly a leaf.

I shall miss the walks in the grounds, especially the vegetable garden.

We have had broad beans and lots of lovely strawberries - all home grown. Saturday is graduation day for the City and Guilds groups so we have been asked to put up a little exhibition. We are all going to bring a piece of work that we made on a course here. I will take photos.

Thanks for all the great comments on video versus books - lots of food for thought. I think the combination of the two is best and will work out a way to do it.

Winners were picked by Jane Lemon who is also a member of the group. We have:

Stitchety Grub, who wins a piece of my work, Maggi who wins some exciting 'stuff' and Wabbit, because we are all so pleased to see her popping up again. Please can you all send me snail mail addys (

back with you all soon.

A sad day for you all - the Urchfont grounds look beautiful. I love your petal/leaf and look forward to reading the article, and to seeing your exhibition photos.

Such poignant photos of a beautiful place. Look forward to seeing the article on WOW.
Am thrilled to be one of your winners and have emailed you. Thank you.

What a sad day for all of the Urchfont people as well as all of us who had hoped to attend a class there someday. Thank you for the photos. I love garden photos. I especially enjoy the photos you share of your stops at National Trust properties.

And thank you as well for making me a winner! I've just emailed you with my snail mail address. Thank you! Wabs
