Well it was cold but sunny to start with, then it poured down, then there was a hailstorm. Swarms of people came in to shelter from the weather, use the toilets and warm themselves in front of the fires but not many people came to buy, it seemed. Having said that, I covered my costs and made just enough to pay for my train ticket to London and my entry to the Quilts Exhibition at the V & A - my next treat later this month. So it wasn't a complete washout and I had some visitors to help make the day go more pleasantly. Emily and Steve dropped by, then went and fed the ducks. Wendy came over and sat stitching with me for most of the day. I met some really lovely people and booked again for September!
John's travelling buddy Richard was back from Crete on Sunday, having been delayed for an extra ten days due to the volcanic ash fiasco. We're looking forward to seeing some of the 200 photos he took so we can check out whether they actually did any work! John doesn't set out for home until May 11th so he still has a week left in the sun.
