Lovely day in Yorkshire today. We went to the quilt Museum in York where they have some costumes from Downton Abbey, The Duchess (my that Keira Knightly is slender) and some related to the Bronte sisters. There were interesting old quilts from the same time, 200 to 100 years ago and the fabrics used are fascinating.
One had been rescued from being a tractor warmer and another from covering a motorbike!
We then drove through the beautiful countryside to Harlow Carr, the RHS garden on the edge of Harrogate. Not only beautiful gardens, especially the kitchen gardens which were imaginative with innovative willow weaves, but also an excellent shop full of very reasonably priced hand made goodies produced by local artisans.
My talk tomorrow..
