Finished in time for Rheged on Saturday

Well here is the final version of the wall hanging for Keswick Embroiderer's Guild. I just want to thank all of you who helped out whether it was stitching or advising or designing, it could not have happened without you all.

Pat and I went to Portinscale on Saturday and showed it to Elizabeth who's husband Charles had designed the lettering (Keswick) in the Arts and Crafts style for us. His contribution was essential to the look and all the more precious for us because he was very ill and sadly died before the hanging was finished. So we asked Elizabeth to put the finishing touches to the wall hanging in memory of Charles and I know she was pleased and very proud that his work was part of it.

I know that you will all share with me that proud moment when the wall hanging goes on display at Rheged on Saturday for the North West Regional Day. I hope to see you there as it promises to be a splendid occasion.

Hi Sandra, thanks for your appreciation of the banner and my efforts, I think I was 2nd but they took my certificate away because it said 3rd... Anyway, I enjoyed the day and the speakers and will put Parbold on our bloglist as soon as I have a minute going up Great Gable tomorrow ...
