I bought some flowers last Friday, i thought they were never going to open but then this is what greeted me when i walked in after work at lunch time
Such a beautiful colour, so intense
I stitched this free design a while ago but only got round to putting it together at the weekend, and yes, I'm blatantly exploiting the beautiful flower to show my stitching!
Summer, and Winter in harmony ;-)
Finished with a beaded edging
Last time i mentioned a new stitching group i was trying to get going. I left flyer's in all the local libraries, Sharon at Betty's put one up in her shop and took names of anyone interested and finally we have around 11 people who have shown an interest. I've been in touch with a local community centre and there is a room free on Wednesday evenings, so it's looks like it is going to happen at last!
So my question is, do you have a regular stitchy/craft group that you go to, or organise? What sort of things do you do, (apart from the obvious stitching that is), do you have raffles, birthday lists? I just need to pinch some ideas if i can.
Thankfully all the pointless rioting has stopped, but not before countless £'s of damage was done and well over a thousand arrests. I saw on the news tonight that for those that are not given a prison sentence there may be community service, lets hope they follow through with that, it might do them good to put right some of the damage they caused. DD is still on working 12 hours shifts and will have worked 15 days / nights without a rest day, but she has stayed safe, which is the main thing. Thank you to those of you who left messages wishing her well.
Until next time..x
