Two down, two to go.

We had a good morning at Writtle, we have managed  to get a lot sorted out.  It was lovely to see the blue sky after the grey skies yesterday, couldn't resist a picture of the sky through this tree.  I thought it was a walnut tree, but on looking up the name when I got home, found out it is called Indian Horse Chestnut.
 I collected some of the nuts for Diane  to draw or paint for her project.
I have manged to stitch two sides to my sample vessel, not sure when I will get the other two on.

Thank you. Writtle College is a wonderful place, I really enjoyed the two years I spent their studying City & Guilds in gardening.
