Busy, busy!

We have had a busy old week - engraving, printing and organising mostly. And a spot of letterpress too. Remember the Pemberley notecards we printed ages ago? I always meant to make them into a series, so here is the next one - a nice quote from Northanger Abbey with a vintage block.

'A woman especially, if she have the misfortune of knowing
anything at all, should conceal it as well as she can.'

We're hoping to perhaps print these tonight so the ink will have plenty of time to dry before the weekend, then tomorrow we have Jon's new engraving to print.

Otherwise, we have been busy working! Here I am attempting to teach some students something useful at Wimpole Hall yesterday - they all seemed to enjoy themselves despite the downpours.

We love walking round Wimpole Park - the lovely lake and folly and the cattle too :-)

Do you take the students around the walled garden?

Thanks Andrea!

Celia - we love Wimpole too (even in the rain). The students were supposed to pop their heads into the walled gardens during the afternoon 'free time'. I suspect they all made a beeline for the tea room! We went in and had a walk round - will have to go back again in a month or so and see how it's all progressing!

Hi! Decided that I should leave a comment to say most of us did make it to the walled gardens!
