When I drove down to the workshop at Committed to Cloth, I went earlier in the morning than I needed to so that I could visit Chartwell - the home of Sir Winston Churchill.

The weather was horrible and Chartwell was overcrowded.  Going round the inside of the house was really difficult - there were so many people and it was hard to see what was on display.  However I still managed to get some reasonable photos.


I moved on from the crowds at Chartwell to a nearby gardens - Emmetts Garden - where I had the garden to myself.  I also had a fabulous cream tea.


This was the view of the South Downs!

Thanks for joining me today.


  1. Great photos Bernice. It is many years since I visited but it's well worth it. I am also jealous of the commited to cloth trip! :)

  2. I can feel the peace settling as I gaze at your final picture. The gardens are amazing with metallic caladiums? and what is that plant with drooping red bells? or are they called umbrels? Beautiful pictures! After walking down that gorgeous garden path with the white chairs I don't think anything could get me up from a short sit-down except a clotted cream tea. Magical way to begin a day.
