Although this might seem a little late, today I'd like to tell you about our St Georges Celebrations. You might think that has nothing to do with textiles but I will come on to that in a minute so please bear with me.
There was nothing arranged in our part of the world so we headed off to a little town called Barnoldwick where I went to school a very long time ago. They were having a little event and we wanted to be part of it. As well as all the obligatory bunting, there was a little fairground for the children, several stalls and some entertainment laid on for everyone. We had a little look around the town shops, had a little bite to eat and went to listen to the brass band playing in the square. They were surprisingly good and we enjoyed a relaxing little concert.
I loved watching them weave, they looked so 'Little House on the Prairie' and I quite envied their weird but wonderful weekend lifestyle. They even drank water from a pot pitcher poured into glasses made from cow horns! I couldn't resist taking a picture of the little girl who they had with them. So cute in that costume- don't you think?
