Trip to Gawthorpe Hall

We all enjoyed a day out at Gawthorpe Hall

www.nationaltrust.org.uk/main/w-gawthorpehall .

Gail Marsh showed us a selection of their English historic textiles. A must see for anyone interested in embroidery.



In the afternoon we viewed embroideries from around the world including a beautiful Chinese robe festooned with symbolic designs.

Malvern Hills

Hi everyone

Guess you all thought you had got rid of me!!  I can now post on your blog so when I have some suitable pics for you all I will put them on.  I miss you all and would like to say a big THANK YOU for the card and lovely present you gave me.  It was much appreciated.  I am back in Yorkshire for 'Stitching in the Dales' and just hope they do not need my passport.
