And so this week to Newark … where after a little confusion courtesy of postcodes and satnav, the correct school was found. It had a most splendid Minton tiled entrance hall! Absolutely too good to miss. So Chris promptly got her phone out (very elderly, but has a camera of sorts) and started to take pictures. Chaos and confusions all around from those not born or brought up in the Potteries (which was pretty well everyone except Chris) … we’re already running a bit late, we’re trying to get set up, and you’re standing there taking photos of a floor??! (Barbara has caused similar confusion taking pictures of Minton tiled doorsteps in London – does no-one understand??) So, with apologies for the poor quality and blurriness, here they are –
Plenty of quilt ideas literally underfoot … One day we might get around to doing something about all our tile ideas, inspiration and heritage! Meantime we’ll keep right on procrastinating.
