Kelmscott Manor

I had a lovely day out on Thursday with the Lutterworth Embroiderers Guild to Kelmscott Manor. It helped that the weather was amazing - very warm and sunny, great to walk around the garden.
Here are some photos of the garden.
This was the home of William Morris.  His daughter May Morris kindly donated the Manor in her will and so now it's open to the public.  She had a very interesting life and mixed with a wide range of people.  Do read up on her.
The lunch was amazing - lots of cheese. Mmmmmm.  And the tour was very good too. 
So if you're in the area do go and have a look.
I've been working on my Hedgerow theme that I started with Catherine Nichols a couple of years ago.  I'm rather pleased with it so far.  I promise to share it when I've got a little further with it.
