I’m back from a lovely week away in Grasmere with 7 lovely friends and 2 DH’s.
We have laughed, eaten, stitched, laughed, eaten, stitched, walked, eaten, laughed, photographed, eaten and laughed.
We’ve admired the stunning scenery in the fabulous warm and sunny weather.
(Yes I am talking about the English Lake District in late September – early October).
I’ve got some lovely memories, loads of conkers, two pieces of work underway and have got stuck in to learning the idiosyncrasies inherent in the new Bernina software.
This is the hotel. Our work room (all newly built) is the building on the right hand side.
The path leads directly into Grasmere and a certain Art Shop.
Yes, that Art Shop.
One of the best.
Opposite the hotel is Allan Banks, a unique National Trust Property that has suffered some fire damage and they still have the doors on display.
Fabulous textures and colours.
The view from the house is STUNNING.
When the sun shines in the Lakes it really does have a natural beauty all of its own.
A walk up the hill …
… gives a natural sculpture.
And another set of textures and colours on this door.
Couldn’t be in the Lakes without a trip to Keswick and a walk along Lake Derwentwater.
The work room and my gorgeous, funny, lovely, inspiring friends.
Thank you all for a lovely week.
