Amberley in the sunshine!

Today we took the 5 mile trip along the Downs to Amberley Museum & Heritage Centre for a day of children's crafts, (no, it's not all about me!).

We couldn't have asked for more perfect weather, 20 odd degrees (it's April!) and not a cloud in the sky.

The kiddies got the chance to make a wheel, try some wood-turning, beading, glass painting and printing as well as going on a steam train and open-top double-decker bus.  Picnic and ice cream, a lot of walking, button pressing and water pumping... fantastic!

***WARNING...lots of photos***

See if you can spot a theme in my subconscious picture-taking!

If you ever get a chance to visit, it is a great day out for families and old codgers alike; lots of old engines, telephones, buses, steam-rollers, narrow-gauge railway, televisions, old-fashioned appliances, woodland skills and pottery!

And finally...


  1. What a great day out - are you planning a mosaic??

  2. I'd be bumping the kids out the way to get a shot at wood turning. Always wanted to have a go at that. Sounds like a brilliant day out.

  3. Possibly a bit of a quilt block theme?? Looks like a great day out. Postcardcwent in the post today :-)

  4. looks like a great day out, and all those lovely shapes fitted together...reminds me of quilts a little bit....xx

  5. Great to know you had a wonderful day :
    It looks exactly like my type of museum, it's a pity it is so far away.
    I can see interesting textures and lots of inspirations for quilts in your photos ;)
