Start of the new year at Castle Textile Centre City and Guilds Patchwork & Quilting and Embroidery

It is always sad to have said goodbye to the students who have spent the last four years with us but it is fantastic to receive the new students full of promise and exciting things to come . Here are some of this years students but I think some are skiving in the kitchen !!! They will start with the 2 year certificate course with Diane and then come to me for the 2 year Diploma course if they wish. Can you spot my teaching colleague Diane? Does she know she is in her 'Where's Wally '   outfit ? I admit it is feint but it's a red and white striped t-shirt

At the boutis museum I met these two lovely ladies. I could not speak French and they could not speak any English but we spent a lovely hour and a half together.
Then we finished a perfect afternoon with a perfect cake that just had to be done .

Boutis museum

I have just spent a lovely week in the south of France. While I was there I visited the Boutis museum. Unfortunately I was unable to take photos of the Bouitis which was disappointing .i just loved the old building whith it's big door handle.
