DORSET ART WEEKS







Dorset Art Weeks opens tomorrow 26th May until 10th June.  I am exhibiting my things with a group formed for the Event Allsorts Textile Artists.  We are exhibiting at Highway Farm, on the A35 out of Bridport, Dorset.  DT6.6AE for those with Sat.Navs.  We have been busy for the last couple of days setting up our things and making ready for what we hope will be a successful event.  If you are in the area please come and say hello. There are some fabulous things on display including Joy's fabulous felt creations and Hilary's beautiful quilts.
Hope to see you there.

NEW ARRIVAL

 Linda and I have just returned from a few days selling and buying in France.  We stayed with our friends Ticky and Nick who were eagerly awaiting for Rosie to produce her foal and so were we.  Wednesday arrived and we were due to travel back to the UK and still no baby.  A 7.30 a.m. telephone call this morning brought the wonderful news.  Rosie had given birth during the night.  Isn't this photograph wonderful.  I must admit I shed a tear.  What a relief that everything went without a hitch.  Can't wait for our next trip to see the new arrival.  I still don't know whether it is a boy or girl or what its name will be.  All will be revealed soon, I hope.
Our shopping trip was a great success and we will be taking our new finds to Stroud to the Antique Textile Fair at Bisley Village Hall the weekend after next.
