Another variety packed week..

...which has seen me travel from here to Rutland, to Reeth and over the snowy hills and dales home again, half a day to catch up with some stitching and then hold a Warped workshop in Jedburgh yesterday.

Tried to be all domesticated briefly this morning but my washing blew off the line and the vacuum cleaner had a hissy fit when faced with a little dog hair.
Well, maybe a lot.

Hugh and I were down in Rutland to attend a BORDA meeting which was very worthwhile. Met some great people who are already providing valuable help to him. We broke the northbound journey with a night in a pub in Grinton near Reeth in Swaledale. Fantastic bar food and most extrovert barman made for an entertaining night.

 The next day's drive brought it home to us how much snow still lingers on higher ground.

Creative types at work
Yesterday's workshop was good fun and everyone produced such interesting work. I really enjoyed myself.

Today I have been adding handstitching with my dyed threads to one of the block print pieces I brought back from Kutch.

That is lovely stitching. You have been busy.

I loved the workshop and am chuffed to bits with my wee bag. Thank you.
