Wrekin Embroiderers Guild

I have just returned from Shropshire, where I spent two action packed days with the Wrekin branch of the Embroiderers Guild.
Ha! What fun I had!
I was looked after so well, thank you so much ladies.
Below are some of the pictures I took of members work. We were making Embellished Books and I was wowed by the inventiveness and skill of this very friendly bunch!
My sincere apologies for not including all the book covers, I haven't mastered quick photography with my iPhone and some of the pictures I took were very out of focus . . .sorry.
Anyway, please feast your eyes on these lovely works of art!

Hidden corners

I had a lovely wander around the hidden corners of Alcester, a most interesting small town in Warwickshire, not far from Stratford upon Avon.

It's one of the few towns around here that still has a variety of individual shops, including a craft shop, a really good knitting/fabric shop and a vintage treasure shop.

It was late afternoon and the sun was being savoured by everyone including the tiger in the last picture.
I love these crooked little houses and spent a while deciding which one ,would one day be mine!
