Up North

Alliums At Otley
Spent a few days up in North Yorkshire staying with a very good friend.  These alliums were in her garden and I could not resist taking a picture or two of them.

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.
