Stelling Minnis Art & Craft Show
We popped out this morning to visit the Stelling Minnis Arts & Crafts Show, really an excuse to get out of the house. The colours of the trees glowed in the damp conditions. The show was on a small scale and was mainly a selling exhibition and mainly pictures by the local art society so the quilts were at one end of the room and here they are.
The Minnis is a very interesting place being unenclosed common land, grass, trees and scrub with houses dotted about as the original commoners' cottages would have been. The former inhabitants would have grazed their animals on this open land. Now they walk their dogs!
