I'm Back!

I had a great time, made lots of new friends, didn't have to cook, discovered some fabulous textile tricks and techniques, took lots of photos which I will need to sift through . . . .

The Bunbury Forum was very well organised. I had never been to a residential one before - I certainly plan to go to the next one. There was so much happening that I missed a lot that I shouldn't have, but I found it difficult to stop working on the pieces Jane Dunnewold was helping us to develop to go to a talk. I certainly didn't miss the newspaper or TV. There was computer access - I never found the time to use it.

I have unpacked, done three loads of washing, flipped through the last week's papers (YUK! those headlines!) downloaded my photos and read some of my emails. Kevin cooked dinner - he deserves a medal.

More tomorrow.

Hi Fibrous Joan :)
Unpacked & 3 loads of washing!!! I am impressed. I have spent the past 24hrs hugging my family, the kids haven't stopped telling me that they love me :)
The past week was indeed an amazing experience and a creative space in my head I will returning to again & again when the textiles & merkins are pushed aside for the internet or boring TV.
You do know I am going to be stalking your blog from now on ;)
Yours in fiddling Xx Shirley
