We are half way around the world since my last blog post and we have crammed a lot in as well as enjoying some downtime! Plus a couple textile and related exhibits that we enjoyed!
Our first stop was York to get over some jet lag and enjoy a bit of the city – its a lovely place but very crowded in the older, historic part. We walked at lot, got a new SIM card and slept!
We had hoped to visit YorkMinster but it was closed for the mourning period. We were able to attend Evensong – a lovely service with a wonderful choir. The steps and lawns were full of floral tributes – I read some of the notes, they were so moving and heartfelt.
There was also a small exhibit in the cafe, titled Sketch by Origin. Two of the artists used textiles and I’d encourage you to check out their websites:
And drove around narrow country roads, expecting to see James Herriot at any moment.
I am so fortunate to see these art works and I hope you enjoy, it’s worth while to follow some of the links!
