Remember way back in July, oh so many weeks ago when the days were longer and the drought was set in and I had returned from two days at the Garden Literary Festival held at Chatsworth this year. I have written about the Literary Festival and the talk by Tom Stuart Smith after which I said that going to Hepworth Wakefield to see his garden was now on 'the list' of must-visit gardens.Sew Different sewing retreat in Cleckheaton. Days where I can combine my loves of gardening and sewing are always treasured. I checked on the map and decided it would take thirty minutes to get from there to there and so it just had to be. My daughter was coming on the sewing retreat with me and she did not need convincing that this was a good plan.
