Yorkshire lavender

I visited the Yorkshire lavender nursery/visitor centre, I was amazed at how many types of lavender there were. Some for cooking ,some for the oil, ornamental, French lavender etc etc ! It is refreshing to see a sign that actually says please touch ! The scent was amazing ...............so relaxing . 
It also amused me when I read the sign for pruning back the lavender, giving the date 15th Septembember between the hours of 10 am and 11 am , why those times I don,t know ! Does anyone else know ! 

Poppy fields

I went up into the Yorkshire countryside yesterday and came across this beautiful poppy field. If it hadn't been a farmers cornfield I would have been tempted to run right through it.......lovely !

Travelling journal

It's not a great picture but I have been adding to my next journal. It just had to be on the Tour de France again as I was stitching blindly in the car travelling the cycle route . Of course I was not driving at the time !!! It is titled Tour de France through the Yorkshire countryside.basically  I took some ivy leaves and buttonholed around them and placed yellow bike spokes in the centre and added a few more detailed stitches . It is now posted off to the next person and I cannot wait for the next one !

Tour de France

Yesterday we decideded to go along the route that the cyclist are going to take. In 4 wheels I hasten to add! There seems to be a great party atmosphere already whith many yellow bikes ,knitted bunting, and loads of flags . I have been stitching away inspired by the route which I shall add to the travelling journals .

Summer end of year exhibition

Here are a few of the students work , I got distracted half way through taking the photos and I missed taking the the rest of the stands before they were taken down so I apologise to the rest of the students . The show was excellent and Diane and myself were very very proud of the students this year.
