Hi everyone hope you are all enjoying the wonderful weather we seem to be having here in mouseville :)
I went away down to my friend Abi's which is abit like escape to the country where her house is as it is really beautiful :) for a few days r&r as there was a stitching show on at the NEC. It had the costumes from the film the duchess on show which we all admired and then we shopped there till we dropped and met up with some friends, one who came back with us Ally :) and then we stitched and yackked and did some more stitching. Abi and i are doing a stitch along everytime we see each other of the Jane Greenoff's "the embroideress" which is a really good job we are as i think we got the charts pre amendments !!! the hemstitch square caused an awful lot of problems and i've still got to finish off the weaving n doves eyes :)
the photo shows what i did while i was at Abi's :) i am now enjoying this piece more only 3 more pages to do ..lol .
Ally and I came home back to my pad on the sunday we set off at 1.45pm and got home at 8.45pm eeekkkkk !!! it was a horrendous journey part of the motorway was totally shut of and we had to do a detour around chesterfield re joined the motorway to hit some roadworks agghhhhhhhh.... all we can say is thank goodness for classic fm and american hard gums and a bit of galaxy chocolate !
well needless to say the next day we were both shattered and spent the day recovering and pottering around my craft room coming up with ideas on how to improve the layout :)
