Stitching news

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well, it has been a while since my last post as I have been quite busy lately.

    Stitching News
    Jane sent me this lovely mail art gift to me, it was a total surprise!  
    It was full of these lovely threads and a threadwinder, thankyou Jane I shall treasure this!   
    I have started stitching this Country Cottage Needlework design that my son bought 
    me for Mothers Day. 
    Here are some close up pictures.
    I have just one more photo to show of a biscornu that my friend Connie has made, but I will show that in my next post.
    I am going away for a couple of days to celebrate our 26th wedding anniversary and my 50th birthday, I am quite looking forward to the celebrations, we are going to one of  my favourite parts of the country – Bath.
    We are having lunch at the Pump Rooms in Bath where Jane Austen used to visit quite regularly, I will update you on my return, and hopefully I will have some nice photographs to show you all.  
    Happy stitching everyone!
    Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

      Wishing you a VERY Happy Birthday, and a VERY romantic Anniversary and get-away trip!

      How fortuitous that I should stop by right before you are ready to leave. I was thinking about you the other evening, and thinking about your previous trip!

      Maybe it is because I've been working on my family tree, and keep linking back to England, Scotland, Wales & Ireland! lol

      Congratulations on the awards! They are well deserved!!
      But mostly, enjoy your holiday!!
