By the cannal:

Yesterday Janet and I went to East Lancs area day. The speaker was Liz wall and the venue was Oldham museum and Art Centre and what a venue indeed. Situated at the side of the Huddersfield narrow canal in the village of Uppermill, it was delightful. During lunch time I popped outside to take some pics. The weather was glorious and a proud family of ducks showing off their eight little ducklings they were so cute. We had a great day filled with gorgeous quilts, lovely fabrics and lots and lots of laughter. Liz Walls work is certainly breathtaking and whilst I have seen some of her pieces several times it never ceases to amaze me. The afternoon was a work shop with Liz making a postcard size piece of her work which depicted birds in a tree. It was great and everyone enjoyed it immensely. My birds look like the birds from in the night garden. All will be revealed later as it is not quite finished. Janet and I ended a perfect day with a scrummy yummy icecream from the icecream parlour across the road, delicious.
