Just got back from a fabulous weekend at Alston Hall with some of the lovely ladies from my sewing group. Oh my goodness! I have literally eaten the equivalent of what would feed a small family this weekend! The food was amazing! Back on the diet tomorrow for sure….
For anyone not familiar with Alston Hall, it is an adult education centre set in a large Victorian House in Longridge, near Preston. Perfect for a sewing retreat – large rooms, high ceilings and lots of natural daylight streaming in through large windows. There is a lovely relaxed atmosphere in the house, just like home from home really. I spent the entire time in my slippers and tracksuit and no one batted an eyelid.
Besides eating my own body weight in food and laughing with my friends until my sides hurt, I actually managed to make a little bag for summer.
But, alas, there are packed lunches to make and clothes to iron and tomorrow’s dinner to think about, because it’s back to work on Monday. Oh well, it was good while it lasted ….
Hope you all had a great weekend too. Happy stitching!
