For the record.


This is so that I remember the gorgeous weather we are having.
I wonder if we'll look back on this Summer as fantastic or not? It certainly took a long time to get started..I can remember wearing an anorak and wellies at the beginning of June and putting the heating on. But we really can't complain at the moment. 
The felt group , last Friday took full advantage of the sunshine and went out for lunch to The Glass House at Stydd Gardens near Longridge. 
Here are some pictures to try to convey the atmosphere.






 Here's my Goats cheese tartlet.
 And smoked salmon pate

Back at the Village hall I was working on mounting my finished stitched pieces.














Rather wordless post.
Hope you enjoyed it.

What an idyllic setting - it speaks for itself in your lovely photos.
If this is all we get this year I think it would count as a good summer, especially after the late start and memories of last year.
You have mounted your pieces beautifully and know just where to add stitch for maximum effect.

Yum - that tart looks positively delicious and eating it in those surroundings wouldn't be a hardship at all.

Those felt pieces have turned out absolutely awesomely wonderful! I love where you are taking the techniques you recently learned. Am also resolved to make haste to the gorgeous glasshouse, which I didn't know about before.
