Today I gave the Madeira lecture at the Scottish Regional Day. Boy it was nerve racking but I managed to get through it without falling off the podium or dropping my notes. The talk was EXTRAV-ORGANZA and I was relieved when the presentation I had prepared opened on the venues laptop. At the end of the day I was fortunate to be able to visit the Arts complex where I viewed the 3000plus post cards made by Embroider’s Guild from all over the country. They were awesome all hung together in one room. It didn’t take me long to find Bedford’s post cards based on Germany.
