As is always the case with me .... I now have to find time to do some stitching to add some depth to the two pieces I produced. Much as I like spending time on an embelliser I still do not think I will be rushing out to buy one.

Expecting the builders today to lay the patio at the back, but they are not now due until after lunch so shall have to get on and do some ironing. If the sun stays out I may even get to sit outside and stitch for a while ... who knows.

I am looking forward to H-Art in September when they should have a wonderful display of work as part of this Open Studios event.

|Alliums At Otley|
We crammed a lot in. Friday three of us went to the Lindisfarne Gospels exhibition in the Galilee Chapel of Durham Catherdral which has been put together by the North East Region of the Embroiderers' Guild. It was a fantastic exhibition, the sun shone all day and the Park and Ride made the visit extremely easy.

Saturday Iwas persuaded that I would like to go to the Yorkshire & Humberside Regional Day at Riccall. Saw lots of people I know and had a good chat to many of them. David Bostock gave an extremely entertaining talk. It is the second time he has given the Madeira Lecture at Regional Day and he always manages to make textile history interesting.

Sunday we did a bit of shopping at Embsay and I managed to resist all their lovely fabrics, but bought one or two bits and pieces I needed.
Monday I popped into Pannal Textile Group for an hour or so before the long drive home. They were just starting a new topic 'Central and South America' and were being shown various methods of producing Mola work, plus tassels and pom poms.

Monday a friend and her husband from my C&G's Embroidery course days spent the day with me and we did a long walk from our house up through the Quarry, around North Hill, back up the Worcester Beacon and then down through St Ann's Well into the gardens where the Buzzard sculpture is sited. Took them to see the lovely stained glass in the Priory after a refreshing cup of tea in the Deli, and then a walk home to wait for DH coming home from work.
The weather has been sunny and hot, good company and generally an excellent time. Unfortunately no sewing or drawing has gone on.
