Gawthorpe Hall Gardens

On a sunny morning about a week ago, I joined other embroiderers for a wander around the gardens at Gawthorpe. At first glance , they might not be the most manicured or even extensive, but they are a hidden treasure. The ranger was so informative and enthusiastic of both the flora fauna and also the buildings. We had a lovely time and I took loads of photos that could be used for the CBP project. A taste of them below.....
The classic view
Our starting point, a huge barn outside and above it , inside.
We were all fascinated by our guides knowledge,
Even a robin stayed to pat attention.
This is my inspiration for a smocked piece for Bolton and a hand felted piece for Pendle.
Lovely countryside and then finally the room where our exhibition will take place
