An away-day adventure in Winchcombe - while cake toppers were being created here in Chippy, Claire was off on an adventure of her own as part of the Wool in Winchcombe event. Hosted and organised by Jane, owner of the Winds of Change Gallery, Wool in Winchcombe is a celebration of the town's wool trade heritage. Knitting and yarnbombing was the order of the day for us,but there are all kinds of other activities going on - including needle felting sheep with Gretel Parker and the Big Knit - alongside a super exhibition of all things woolly at the gallery itself. Highly recommended for anyone wanting a trip to the most beautiful part of the Cotswolds. Find out more at www.windsofchangegallery.co.uk
