Thank you! We enjoyed our busy day too. It is a sign of how engrossed everyone was that the biscuits were untouched and we only had 3 cups of tea all day. That is so unusual! Look forward to seeing you again!

Many thanks for the review. I'm happy that you enjoyed the weekend - that's our first aim achieved. The second you all managed and that is to take home not only a basket but also the knowledge and enthusiasm to keep weaving!
