We have just had a wonderful exhibition at Farndale.  Once again the daffodils were at their best and although the ground was more like a mud bath, it didn't deter either the walkers or the embroidery enthusiasts.  Lots of people came especially to see our work and several said that they had been looking out for it as they had enjoyed it so much in the past. It wouldn't have been the success it was without all the stitching from the members and the work from those who manned the rooms on the day. Here are photographs of most of the work on display.

These little fellows were the star of the show.  22 members each made one of these birds from a Stitch magazine pattern and as you can see, each one is different.

These are Colleen's 'comforter's' made up from the work she did for her City and Guilds many years ago.  The remains of each piece from round the dolls she has made into a book.  They look a bit like forensic body drawings!
