Blue sky, sun and silly festival hats
Mark King - the Slap Bass King
DH watched most of Level 42's set through his binoculars, Mark is one of his Bass Heros and would love to play slap bass like him - sore finger allowing!
More silly festival hats as worn by the Darlings
Rocking all over Guildford!
This is the second time we saw Status Quo at Guilfest - this was the best!
The Fabulous FEZHEADS
Chopping a Fezhead in two
Good Old Music Hall magic tricks, Sand Dances and Comical Music
When DH grows up he wants to be a Fezhead!
Should they ever need a three fingered bass player he's their man!
This event starts on Friday afternoon and goes on until Sunday evening, camping is available - tent or camper van, but we usually choose the best running list for either Saturday or Sunday and then book a day ticket. Would have liked to see the Human League on Saturday night, but just couldn't face NDubz. We decided the Sunday was more our style of music!

Below is an overview of what I did at Urchfont.
There are no methods or explanations of how they were created - my fellow Distant Stitchers know how I created the fabrics and in respect for Ruth Issett I won't be telling you, go do your own Ruth Issett Workshop you'll thank me for suggesting it!
Making marks and lines with black
Some of the black marks can still be seen in the coloured fabrics below
Creating something with the fabric you have manipulated.

As an icebreaker Hazel suggested we make ATCs, place them in a coded envelope and then we chose a different envelope and spent time finding out who had made which one from the clues on the envelope and what we might have been wearing.
Above are all the different styles of cards created.
So tomorrow...a day of rest?
Darling Husband celebrates his birthday and
Darling Daughter has her prom, so probably not!
Ruth Issett was brilliant
Off for a lie down in a dark room to recharge the batteries
It was great to meet up with old friends and meet new ones
Thanks for making this year fun, as always
Blogging soon with photos...
