Yes it is really Summer. Despite the rain, wind and cold of the North East coast of England, we have had some glorious days. The rain has encouraged my garden to grow – with a little help, the wind blows away a few of those cobwebs that have been lurking in my house and the cold spells have enabled me to curl up and think about being creative.

So what are you doing? You ask? Visiting exhibitions, doing courses as a student and promoting my own mini exhibition in our local branch library.

I am an avid course member. I will go to as many embroidery/craft course as I can.

In the past I have taken night classes and day classes, I took an Open University degree in my twenties!. I have taught adults basic computing and I love passing on knowledge and skills to others.

You might say I am a course junkie.

The whole point of starting this post is that I have just come back from a course that I helped to organise. I had a lovely time, with lovely people in a place where I did not have to think about cooking, or making the bed or doing the washing.

Thank you North East Region of the Embroiderers’ Guild.

December 27th homeward bound

After a great few days in the Lake District DH and I left behind the snow on the tops of the hills

We passed the pub we had our honeymoon in 43 years ago

Then went through an almost white-out on the top of Kirkstone pass over the Pennines.

By the time we hit the North East coast the sun was shining but before I thought to take a photograph it was disappearing, just a glow left over the roof tops.
