Off to Summer School

I don't seem to have made much progress on the module in the last few weeks, but my excuse is the sun is shining and we have to take advantage while we can - who knows how long the glorious weather will last. I have got as far as fitting the clock movements to the sheet of copper, but am being hopelessly indecisive about what to do next.

Never mind, I am all packed and ready for the Distant Stitch summer school at Urchfont Manor College starting on Sunday evening - two 1/2 days and evenings focusing on textiles hurrah! - and expect to come back fully enthused. I am going to get there about lunchtime on Suday to have a look around the Open Day and exhibition which I can recommend as a day out to anyone in the area. The college is in an old manor house set in its own grounds in a pretty village near Devizes, Wiltshire, and is a lovely place to visit on a summer's day. The Open Day is from 10am to 3pm.

If anyone is going and wants to meet up, drop me an email.

Hope you have a lovely time at Urchfont. I have never been but have heard from others what a great experience a course there is.
