A day at the exhibition

I spend all today at the exhibition as I knew a large group would be coming. They were all members of the Dumfries Embroidery Guild and they were making a day of it, visiting my exhibition, then on to Traquair House. It was lovely to meet up with them all again so a lot of chatting went on too. They had barely left and more visitors arrived. They too came by bus, but this time from Edinburgh. They were allso on a daytrip, this time with the Rural Institute and were finishing their day with a meal at one of Peebles hotels. In the process, guess who had no food at all today till she arrived home?!

No matter as another large quilt was sold! I'm treating you to a slideshow of the gallery again (see below) and also to a detailed shot of the quilt Waves of Anger (also sold!), which was my blip today. There was a challenge theme on blipfoto for the week and it was anger so what better to picture then a detail of the Waves of Anger quilt as shown above!

Rather than rushing out tomorrow and trying to catch the Japanese Exhibition in Edinburgh and then return to Peebles I've decided that really I need to be at my own exhibition specially as on Saturday I will be at the Loch Lomond Quilt show.

My exhibition will also be open next Friday (27th May) evening from 7 - 9 pm to coincide with the private view of a football themed exhibition in the smaller gallery in the same building. There might be some "football widows" looking for a bit of light relief!
