At last, I am up and running again.
I won't go into details but I have a new computer and
have a faster (supposedly!) fibre optic broadband so I should now be super efficient.
Nice idea but don't hold your breath will you.
So many things have happened since I last spoke to you
that this post would turn into a novel
if I went through them all now.
So here are just a few of the highlights.
A trip to the American Museum at Claverton ,Bath
to see the Kaffe Fassett exhibition
and have a 2 day workshop with the wonderful
Janet Bolton. She is one of the nicest ladies
I have ever met and the workshop was a real dream,
So relaxed and was part of the Bath Summer School
programme of events.
I would love to show you
some of the photos I took of the workshop
but a couple of the ladies
there weren't happy about being put on the internet
so instead just a couple of photos from the exhibition.
Including the sample wall which I think is a fabulous idea.
Kaffe knows that the first thing any needle person wants to do
is grab hold of the fabric so he had a collection of samples so
you could have a good old nose at the back.
Makes you feel a to happier about your own work I can tell you.
Of course there has been
Plenty of time at Cromer watching the sunset and spending time with
my children at the Surf life saving club.
We have had some wonderful sunsets this year.
Short breaks with my Brother in Bradford on Avon,
My Son on the Gower peninsular in South Wales
and of course the fantastic poppies at the Tower.
I have bought one of these to remember my Great Uncle
Herbert and Guy's Great Grandfather both of whom
where killed in the Great War (WW1).
We both found the experience very moving and were so very glad we
made the trip down from Norfolk.
So with a week in Somerset and a holiday in Madeira
and Rugby at Twickenham last weekend
that about brings you up to date with my many and varied
travels while I've had my time away from blogging.
Next time I will try show you some of the projects I have managed
to complete over the last couple of months although I also am going on a trip
to the country living fair with my daughter this week so might tell you about that instead.
We really need a nice cup of tea and a good old natter don't we.
Hope you are all well and
see you again soon.
It's good to be back.
