Dove Farm 2009

I spent last weekend on a farm in the Peak District along with some of my stitching friends. We spent the time chatting, stitching, knitting, quilting and lots and lots of laughing!

Dove Farm - People

This is the third year that we've been to the farm and the owner Jane commissioned us to make a wall hanging that can hang in their conference room. I wasn't able to take part but everyone who did take part did a stunning job. Here is the completed hanging:

The farm has a growing flock of alpaca, sheep, cows and poultry. I was only able to get photo's of the alpaca and the hens due to the weather which was distinctly on the soggy side.

Due to the weather we weren't able to enjoy the courtyard but the flowers were looking lovely
