Brilliant weekend.

Happy 4th of July to all our friends across the pond in the US. Hope you have or have had a great time.

I went along to the Open day at Urchfont College yesterday and in the photo is Anna.. check her blog here.... the eagle eyed amongst you will see her recent piece of work Muse 1 on the wall behind her.

There were not as many exhibitions as in previous years, which was a bit disappointing as I took Kath along with me. She is first time visitor to Urchfont Open Day. It was however good to catch up with all my mates and also buy some goodies from Art Van Go. Their stand is always so manic at Festival of Quilts or Ally Pally.

I was wondering how my granddaughter was getting on at her Feis in Bristol in her new dress, and so when I had arrived home, they paid us a surprise visit.
It was the Wales and West Feis.. so quite a large number of competitors took part.
She had won two 1sts, a 2nd, 3rd, 4th , and a highly recommended.... I was so proud of her and here she is with all her medals, trophy and sash. It is the first time she has ever won a sash, and the 1st time she has managed to win two 1sts in one Feis. In all she had danced 9 times, and was quite tired!
