The map is lace and is located on the side of a canal! Chocolate & lace... Excellent!! There were around 300 guides, brownies, guiders and trefoil guild members there as well! All from Tadcaster, York, Doncaster & Selby areas. May even end up giving a talk on lace to some of them!
Of course, being a lacemaker and craftaholic.... I had to take something with me didn't I?? Give you 3 guesses.... give in?? Shuttles!!!! Sat in the bar on both of the evenings and in the morning... tatting. I had any number of people coming up and asking what I was doing!! It was fun explaining! I even ended up tatting mini trefoils for the guild ladies to put on their teddies which had been guarding their drinks!! VBG. One lady thought I was sewing my fingers together!
Anyway, here's what I was doing on the boat.... the small motif is from Jane's site, and the earrings were a present for Agnes's birthday on Monday. Yes I know there's only one.... somebody forgot to take a pic of one and so.... 'reconstructed it' and turned it into a different pair!! The pattern is here.
Do you think I've been busy???? LOL
