Yesterday, after a rather leisurely breakfast with the weekend papers, Ian told me to grab my camera, purse and coat as we were going out on a mystery tour. Not one to pass up a chance getting out of the house, I was dressed and ready at the door before he was.
Our short drive took us to Southwell, about 15 miles from where we live and a small market town.
The object of the visit was the Quaker Tapestry Exhibition which is being held at Southwell Minster until the end of February and consists of 39 of the 77 panels that make up this modern tapestry charting three centuries of social history.
The panels are 25 by 21 inch and were stitched by over 4000 men and women between 1981 and 1996 in crewel work on specially woven wool cloth.
We followed our visit to the Minster with a wander round the shops, especially the second hand book shop and of course the sweet shop.
On a different note, Photos from the Giant Patchwork Exhibtion in Langres, France 2004 can been seen here on Biker Teds blog and if you are NOT Squeamish, you can see the update photo of my arm here- I did warn you !!!!
News Flash, its just starting to snow- I always get excited at the propect of snow as we don't often see it here so Ian has just dashed out to feed the birds.
