Now for a bit of gardening.

First days at Blickling



          I just thought i would show you the space I have at Blickling Hall.
 It is so good to display the quilts like this as they can be seen at full size.
This table and coat hook has my Bags and small quilts.
I just have a small space at the end that I can work on.
Yesterday I made some Christmas cones to hang on
Christmas Trees.As I had some kits left from  another show
I took them along and they sold well.

I am exhibiting with two other artists I have not seen before.

Portinfer,Guernsey


I thought I might try making a wall hanging
using  these photos for inspiration.

                                           I had taken a trip on the bus around the Island.

                                              This is where I decided to stop for lunch.

                                          The Granite had such a verity of colour.
                                             I maybe will have a go.
