Here's a few I can remember : Mercator, Hippos, Seasonal food, Culpeper's remedies, Shipping forecast, history of Newark, Maypoles, Tai Chi, flowers in bridal bouquets, weddings, honey, inspirational quotes, blue (the colour, not the boy band!), Italy, worms (this was a change from her first idea of Henry VIII !).
Made me think I ought to have a project of my own, I was going to choose Northumberland, but have narrowed it down to Dunstanburgh castle which is one of my favourite places on earth!
I've gathered lots of info, and done a rough of a first piece - will put it on here when it's looking a little better.
