Whilst on the subject of exhibitions, I have been asked to mention an exhibition by Foggy Furze Quilters. This will take place at Foggy Furze Library, Stockton Road, Hartlepool on Thursday 10th and Friday 11th June. Entry is free and there is to be a raffle (first prize a quilt) in aid of the RNLI. If any readers are in the area on those days I am sure it will be well worth a visit.
Finally, to the dandelions. I had a friend staying with me last week and spent lots of time out and about visiting local attractions and, thanks to the mainly good weather, country walks. Is it my imagination or are there more dandelions than usual this year? Some roads were lined with them - very sunny and cheerful - and I wondered if our cold winter and late spring has perhaps provided good conditons for them. The down side is that they also seem to have taken over our lawn!
