One of the new members to the Pannal Textile Group recently emailed the above picture and these comments:-
I am sticking my neck out a bit as the newest member but I so enjoyed my day, I thought you might like to see how much.  Last year I tried to start a project on the theme of the Lindisfarne gospels and the Book of Kells but I got all the books out, sketch book and pencils, paints, etc and just looked at it for a couple of hours and decided that I couldn't do it.
I have now made an 'ideas' page which I am really pleased with although I am still struggling with the drawing.  I am now onto my page 'proper' and that is coming along quite well.   I now need to go and do some housework as I have abandoned everything to get this far.
 Love the stitched samples on the page - hope you are all taking note?
