Finally caught up yayyyy

Hope you are all well and had plenty of crafting time.  I have been away to the UK for a holiday and to my fantastic baby brothers wedding, we had an absolutely wonderful time, the Wedding and my Brothers new Bride was stunning so was the weather which was surprising for this year.  Welcome to the family Emma..  and thank you, you two, for such a memorable day.

I also was besides myself when I found out that there was a Stitching and Quilting show on at Harrogate Show Grounds the day before the wedding and I was at a loose end that day as DH and DS went off with the wedding party, clay pigeon shooting, which DH won by the way and DS came second, their first time too.  So they dropped me off on their way, I had a fantastic time, it was like a kid being in a sweet factory, such an experience for someone that has been deprived living in Ireland where stitching supplies are practically none existent.    

 I have been trying to catch up on my 'Around the World in 80 Stitches' Designed by Papillion Creations I didnt get a chance to stitch the last three parts until these last week or so.  I found these three parts so much easier to stitch than the first, must have got my mojo back. Yayyy Cant wait no until part 7.

I also managed to catch up on my other SAL 'Confetti of Hardanger'  designed by Abi Gurden and is running with the stitching group 'Specialist Stitches' This is really fun to stitch, which I am attempting using just two shades of a pale pink/peachy Perle Cotton.

This last piece is a small Coaster which was a little freebie from Abi Gurden when I signed up to her new SAL 'Confetti of Hardanger'  Cute isnt it, not that I will use it as a coaster, would hate tea to be spilt on it.  Until next time xxx
