Sorry it's been so long between posts again. We were away on holiday last week & I had hoped to post before we went but the Blogger downtime meant that it wasn't to be.

We went up to the Lake District for a week and had a great time. I shall be back with more about it in another post but the highlight for me was to spend a couple of days at Fobbles taking a class, Fruits of the Vine Huswif with Ellen Chester of With My Needle. My photo's from the class weren't any good as I forgot to take a spare battery for the big camera and my phone pictures turned out all blurry but there are plenty on Ellen's blog here and here.

Finally I'd like to say a big thank you to Becky and Julie of In the Company of Friends. They offered a give away on their blog and I was one of the luck winners of the guide to the exhibit of Middle Tennessee Sampler.

It must have been great fun to take a class with Ellen! The few hours I ever spent in the Lake District were very rainy, so I didn't see much of it - still hoping in another chance :-)

Karoline I'm so glad you got to take Ellen's class - she does an awesome job with her classes and a good friend of mine took Fruit of the Vine so I have seen the project and it is absolutely gorgeous. Glad you were able to get away for a few days on holiday. Hope to see a WIP soon - Mel
