What a GREAT WEEKEND

I have had a brilliant if sad weekend. It was our final weekend of the Historical Heirlooms course, our 'graduation' weekend and the Urchfont Manor Open day. The whole course has been fantastic, inspirational and tremendous fun. Janet Crowther, our tutor said she bet I'd get something up on my blog even before she got home... so Janet here you are!! I know I will have managed as I only live 10 minutes from the college whilst Janet has several hours to drive!!

Anyway THANKS VERY MUCH for everything Janet. I would also like to thank my fellow students: Hazel, Anna, Maggie, Pauline, Adrianne and our two machine embroidery students: Jane and Molly for all being such a wonderful group to work with. We MUST meet up as discussed.

Anyway enough waffle or you'll have the tissues out soon.. let's get some pics up for now - I will be posting more over the next couple of days as I would but for now I'll show you my assessment pieces - not because I am big headed but because some of you have asked and I have sort of kept them secret until now, but firstly the whole group from the left - Jane, Maggie, Anna, Adrianne and Hazel peeking at the back, Pauline, me, Janet and Molly. Next a view of our exhibition from the door as a work in progress yesterday afternoon, the room looked absolutely brilliant and visitors today were very impressed with all the work. A couple of quick views of my 'stand'...
And... finally my two assessment pieces - one you have seen already and here is the rust one based on an 18th century costume - the fabric is all rust dyed - now you know why I have bored you over the last few months with my rusting!!
Must finish here to unpack the rest of the stuff before it rains again. More in the next day or two.

Oh Anna, how wonderful. The exhibition looks just fab, I would have loved to have seen it. I found something tou the other day about teaching and thought I would pass it on, if you have done C+G level 4 it counts as the foundation year to a degree, so you only have to do 2 years not 3?Woud his change anything for you?
