Making an exhibition of ourselves: Ten Plus Textiles’ latest show is up at Nantwich Museum (there’s a photo on their site at the moment, follow the link, then click on ‘Exhibitions’ in the left hand list… the page has no unique URL unfortunately). The preview, on Saturday 3 May 2008, was a great success, lots of visitors, refreshments and work was sold!!! (Not mine I hasten to add!) The exhibition was officially opened by the Chair of the Board of Trustees,who gave an interesting speech too.
The joy of life… in a window!!! After the preview, I went to St Mary’s Church in Nantwich (Ken, Diana’s husband recommended it). Almost opposite the side entrance is a modern stained glass window, erected as a memorial to a farmer by his wife. I sat in the cool church and looked. It is beautiful. Colours so bright and throughout it’s dynamic design, all life is represented. Take a look at it in the church, if you get the chance. Here’s a link to the church web site, if you scroll down, there’s a picture of ‘The Creation Window’, but it couldn’t possibly do it justice.
…Then the not so good news… my health has been a bit shaky and I’ve found out I have angina. But I’m on medication which is helping and I’m learning to manage the symptoms better, thanks to some information from our local library… I do love that place! So things aren’t so bad, I’ve a good excuse to get out and stroll in this lovely warm weather! =D
Open University… I’ve started the short course ‘Design and the Web’. I’ve just completed Lesson 1. Yaaaaay! It’s been fun and I’m learning…. I do love learning new things!
Good wishes to all!
