Anyway we met up outside the church to visit their annual Art Exhibition, it's quite a large exhibition compared to the others I've been to this year. Some interesting art in all sorts of medium, some I wouldn't let into the house at any price. It was good to look round with someone who has done lots of art things - we mostly have quite different taste in what we like.
I was feeling extravagant and spent out for these two. Now I need to find some frames, and decide where to hang them, somewhere where I can add other little pictures as I find them. They are .....Original lino prints, hand printed on Japanese Hosho paper using vegetable oil based ink, then hand painted with acrylic.
Last year I took lots of photos, but this time photos except general ones were Not Allowed, shame. Makes life difficult for bloggers.
The church puts on a good refreshment stall with home made cakes which have to be tried .........then home.................. I was glad I'd parked in the shade, even hotter yesterday than Sunday.
All through the spring I'd been watching the thatching being done on an old house that I pass on my way through Eye when I go swimming.
Now being on foot I got a photo of how good the new thatch looks. That's EYE CASTLE - or what's left of it on the mound or motte behind and the church tower on the right.
A good way to spend a Bank Holiday Monday morning, thank you Rachel for the idea.
Thank you to everyone for comments yesterday about the flower festival and jigsaws. The charity idea for arrangements was certainly different and some lovely colours used in the arrangements. A jigsaw puzzle has been started already - with 6 to do I thought I'd better get going.
