a grand day out part two

After succumbing to temptation at the spinning fair, I made my way down to the Lincolnshire Museum of Rural life. Free admission makes this little gem worth visiting.

In answer to Sally's' question, yes I did stop for tea, more than once and here is the evidence.

A pot of tea and toasted teacake £1, bargain at the museum!

Next call stop was a Ellis' mill which unfortunately closed but still looked wonderful,

I hope you have all enjoyed this short trip as much as I did.

I've never been to the Museum or to the Mill, I shall have to remedy that. The artwork is amazing and not a bad view too! :-) I think I have seen something on tv where children make very simple patterns with coloured powder like this. This is so intricate though.

I love the Rangoli design. We were in Bangalore last summer and it was amazing to watch the women placing intricate designs in front of their doors EVERY morning. I thought that they were chalk, but discovered they were pouring streams of rice powder to make the designs. As I researched them more, I have decided to use some for quilting designs!!!
