Banjara bags and monsoon rain

I seem to be falling into the typecast British person - always talking about the weather!   But it has been seriously like monsoon weather for days.

Last Wednesday I drove to Ashburton in Devon to take a workshop on Banjara bags.   A two hour drive, but allowed an extra 30 minutes for unfavourable road conditions.   The countryside and roads awash with water, and the rivers overflowing their banks.   The hilly bits of Dorset shrouded in mist.

Banjara bag project - loads of stitching involved here, just the thing for 
wet weather work, even better, sitting stitching in the sun!

The lovely ladies of Ashburton West Country Embroidery Group at the end of the day.
Banjara bags - work in progress on the table.   

A glimmer of hope, evening sunshine - note rain on window!
