Weekend is here again – hurray!

Saturday Sharne and I were up to Cottenham (FET) this was ‘D day’ – will our work be selected for the exhibition at Sutton Hoo http://www.fenedgetextiles.co.uk/

Well we were both pleasantly surprised and all pieces were accepted, there were some outstanding pieces of work submitted, Sharne’s Ecru piece, being one of them, but got so carried away – forgot to take photos – will try harder next time!!

I was also very happy that one of my pieces had been used for the poster – what a result.

The it was off the the Kings Head at Rochford to hear Pete in his band ‘Bare Wire’, they were particularly good and we had lots of favourable comments about him, so much so that he has been re-booked.

We then went along to Hylands House for lunch and @Patchwork in the Park’ was on and it was time to catch-up with some very dear friends, in particular Diana and Delia, both of whom Sharne and I owe a lot too, also gave me the opportunity to distribute some posters about Fen Edge Textiles forthcoming exhibition.
