Sandra McF and I drove up to Carlisle last Sunday. The local branch was exhibiting in Tuille House, in celebration of their 60th anniversary. I had hoped that the roads would be more quiet than during the week and we made it in just under 2 hours. We passed an awful accident on the southbound motorway , and the police had closed it further north, The tail back was miles but fortunately cleared by the time we returned home. Linda one of the members and also a trustee was on duty and several other members were stitching so it was a very relaxed but welcoming exhibition. We were really impressed with the wide range of techniques and quality of work. I had to write to Gill to tell her how much I admired her autumn leaves. Do call if you can make it.
