A beautiful cold sunny morning, with the autumn colours looking spectacular along the road as Graham and I went up to the ‘Art Unequalled’ show at the Maltings in Ely.
My friend, stained glass artist Naomi Brangwyn, was participating, and said she was having a great weekend. She certainly seemed to have a good steady stream of customers while we were there! She had some lovely Christmas pieces in amongst the sea themed ones. I was very taken with the glass mistletoe hanging. To find more about Naomi’s work check out her website at www.naomi-brangwyn.com
It was a very good varied show and we enjoyed looking round. I particularly liked the hand made textiles of Maggie Gibbs, trading as Daisy Dumpling and couldn’t resist a pair of her crochet fingerless gloves made from British wool , merino and silk.
It is impossible to have too many fingerless gloves . . . . ! Maggie comes from Northamptonshire and her website is www.daisydumpling.co.uk
After a nice lunch in the Riverside Restaurant we had a wander round the cathedral – it seemed a shame not to as we were right there, and I haven’t been there for a couple of years. Here are a few photos for you to enjoy . . .
The late afternoon sky on the way home was wonderful. The colours, especially once the sun had begun to set, were breath-taking seen across that huge flat Fenland landscape – which is almost all sky.
Hope you’ve had a good weekend, too 🙂
