Here are a couple of photos from the day:
I found an unexpected little treasure in an art gallery based at the Abbey, in the form of this embroidery kit...
The kit contains a piece of hand-painted calico which has a pretty floral design, and the idea is that you freestyle french knots onto the painting to form the flowers. I haven't tried anything like this before so I'm really looking forward to the freedom of the design.
There are some really pretty examples of how this works on the artist Anne Woodgate's website here, and here is one beautiful example of a much larger design...
What's in your hoop right now?
