I have one final page for Halle's 'A Stitch In Time' theme at Art Journal Journey. I wish I had time to make more!!!
The little scrap of blue fabric has been on my desk since the start of the challenge.
It is from an old shirt that had several of these little embroidered squares on it - the rest have got onto fabric makes.
It's just a junk journal page using up more of my scraps, most of which were hanging around my desk area! I've been throwing on little bits I might use during my clean up!!
I need to give warning here - I took a lot of photos! We went to visit another National Trust property, Biddulph Grange, last week. A little farther away from home, and we haven't visited this place since the grandchildren were a lot younger,they used to love it here.
We were confident that the NT had a one way system established and were informed that the only toilets were at the entrance!
Th lovely cafe was closed - no surprise there.
First are the Italian gardens
The calm lake - full of fish!
No frogs on these thank goodness!
Next was the Oriental garden
I love this part of the gardens....
.....leading to ...
This is part of the Dahlia walks - best in August
One lone Dahlia in bloom
Lots of areas that couldn't be in a one way system
...a longer walkWe decided to take the long walk around the woodland area
Some wild beauty - I don't know which I like most - blackberries or the flowers...definitely not the thorns though - bad memories!!!
Some of he children's activities were closed off as they need handling, but the stepping stones were easily accessed !
I just could't resist!!
A Giant urn looking down the hill!This is what you saw earlier -now on the one way system!
I had forgotten about this surprise as we headed back - hidden in one of the little tunnels under the rocks!
This area is most impressive too
...and another roped off area
We headed back to the car park....to join Bleubeard and Elizabeth for T Stands for Tuesday
We took a flask of coffee and our mugs from home this time.
We have been out somewhere else today - but I'm not going to spoil next weeks post...it's somewhere you will recognise I'm sure...
Thanks for looking and Happy T Day! Chris
