Monday was a glorious day after the awful rain over the weekend. I took my godson from Canada who is staying with me,to the train and then drove past Padiham to our new venue , and new branch name Pendle. I am delighted at the success of this branch, very friendly members and producing lovely work. Our Xmas competition was to create a book cover.and there were many to choose from , but our amazingly hard working Secretary , Joan,found the time to make a lovely piece and was presented with a small gift by Sue our Chair
We ate another very successful Jacobs Feast and then had to stitch our names onto a pre assembled badge. Thank goodness I have a short name., because we were then given a quiz to complete.Patricia sitting next to me won with 12 correct answers but I was quite pleased as I managed 11 correct and I had finished my badge too. An exchange of hand made cards and I was ready to leave. We no not meet in January so look forward to my next visit in Feb next year!!!

On Thursday, I braved the awful weather to go down to Altrincham . Sandra had kindly invited me to tea and then we went to the opening of their exhibition. I was really impressed by the venue and will find it hard to explain, but will try. The place was right in the centre of Altrincham, called Art with a Heart. Two women were in charge of this charity where they encourage art and heritage.They rely on donations and work with an incredibly small budget but was to make art accessible to everyone. The room was huge and divided into many smaller area but I was there to concentrate on the Altrincham embroideries.
I have a new camera and am still learning how to make the best of it so some lovely work did not photograph too well.Do call in the centre open Thurs to Sunday, 10.00 till 5.00pm. The embroideries will be there until17th Jan 2016.
