Alice Saltiel Marshall hosted us for my birthday, and then talked me into a Gelli demo while I was there. What fun. I was obviously being terribly bratty, playing the violin at someone I'd just met!

After pulling some prints, I encouraged those attending to do the same.

I was delighted that Marjory won the door prize (more about that in my next post), given that she drove an hour and a half to attend the demo!
And of course, no visit to the Marshalls would be complete without some hi-jinks, as evidenced by this photo. If John were a seamstress, he could be checking the length of his woolly gift to me, but that's definitely not the case.
Our day ended with a fabulous dinner party, topped with a birthday pie (thanks for remembering I'm not much of a cake fan, Alice!).
As always, a wonderful visit, tremendous food, fabulous company, and the occasional glass of wine - how could life get any better?
