 These embroidered squares will be made into a tablecloth to be used on NW Regional days.  Michele King bravely volunteered to design and embroider our Merseyside branch square, and she has made a lovely design which she has now completed.It will now wend its way to NW Regional Chair Val Coleshaw. Good work, Michele!

June to view the Quaker Tapestry. We had a very enjoyable day with sunshine all the way! The Quaker Tapestry Exhibition Centre staff were very friendly and informative, and the cafe served delicious food as well! Unfortunately we were not permitted to photograph any of the embroideries, but many thanks to Gill Roberts for the lovely photographs of our group.

The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference.
