Of course going to Quilt Shops meant that I did buy some fabric!!!!!!!!!!!!! Will take a photo later, when I have some good light.
|Anne and I.|
Saturday we met my niece, her husband and 2 small children. We spent the day exploring the Beamish Open Air Museum, which is a living history museum of the north of England. It was very overcast and drizzly, but there is so much to see and do, that I'm sure you could take a few days. We saw how coal miners worked, went on a very ancient type of steam train, saw how dentists were in the late 1800's where you paid for morphine and laughing gas before you had the treatment in case you died whilst in the chair. The instruments looked "ghastly". There were all sorts of old fashioned shops, houses, farm workers cottages and lots we didn't see.
So sorry I've not posted lately, but I have no proper internet access where we are staying now and am madly doing this at MacDonalds. I may not get a chance to update till we get home and I'd had the first part of this post as a draft. (Photos take so long to load that I'm just writing instead). We've had wonderful times so far, but leave on Tuesday 7/10 and this week, we seem to be doing a lot of catching for farewell outings with family and friends. Thanks to all who have commented and I'll try and do the odd catchup on your blogs when I can. Take care all and have a great week.
