As the sun was shining brightly, I decided against getting back to my school reports after breakfast, instead I went to Hyland's House to see the E.H.A. exhibition.(Essex Handicrafts Association) My daughter went armed with sketch book, pencils and camera to get in some drawing practice ready for starting G.C.S.E.'s next year. The grounds there are full of wonderful old trees. Within a very short time of getting there, it turned too cold for her to draw, so she waited in the car with Hubby, while I enjoyed the exhibits. Photos are not allowed to be taken inside the house because of the flash causing damage, which was a pity as there was some lovely work on show. It was lovely to see so many people I know who are involved with textiles, so as well as enjoying the exhibits I also enjoyed a good natter. Denise from Craft Arena was there, and she has had some new Valdani threads in. Guess what? One of the new colours is just the right very dark green have been looking for. for some time. I now have a stitching project to take to work with me!
I have now finished my reports and can start playing!
