Where do I start?

I've been up to so much, I don't know where to start.
So - first of all I'll start with the Open Studios at Bramble Patch with Edwina MacKinnon and Catherine Nicholls.  I didn't time my arrival too well as a coach party had just arrived.  But I bided my time and waited so I could have a chat with them both.  So here's a photo of a more relaxed open studio.
And just an aside about The Bramble Patch - they now have a weekly newsletter, so just subscribe on their website.
And then I went onto The Splendour of Stitch at Wycliffe Memorial Methodist Church in Lutterworth. This is an annual exhibition by the Lutterworth Embroiderer's Guild and it's a great opportunity to see all the members work. They also had lovely tea and cake on offer.  here are some photos from here too:
 These are from our Carol Naylor class.
These are our aprons from our class with Jamie Maldon from Colouricious. A great way to display them 


I love these elephants and will be asking for a workshop to make one - they are so cute.
And these are some of the pieces made at our Janet Bolton class.
And then yesterday I had a very exciting day with some friends - at the Battle of Bosworth re-enactment.  It was great.  Here are a couple of the banners, beautifully made.


Here is the Battle of Nations.  
They were fab - no holds barred, full on fighting.



  And then there was the re-enactment.  It was very well done and a great spectacle. 







If you do get the opportunity to go - please do.  
There was so much to see we didn't fit it all in.
Anyway - hope you're still making the most of the fine weather.
Best wishes.
