Yesterday was the stitching meet up at The Nimble Thimble, arranged through the Needlecraft Haven forum, by Tina this time, thanks Tina :-)
There were some ladies from the forum but also some that were not members of the forum but I knew through some other round about way.
I had a great time, even though my sat nav took me miles out of the way and wanted me to head in the other direction! I eventually found it :-)
Last week I had started a kit I've had for at least 2 years, a Jane Greenoff, Beautiful Borders Cushion, so that came along with me.
I managed to get quite a bit done on it, for slow stitcher me anyway, and I did have a few sneaky purchases from the shop too.
I think the Lizzie Kate Autumn sampler will be my seasonal choice for the SAL on Needlecraft Haven this time.
The Tiny Tidings are quite fun looking and I thought would make great Christmas Ornaments for Oliver's tree.
So, It's back to work tomorrow morning for me, can't say that I'm looking forward to it too much, it'll be a bit like being the new girl at school again for a day or so, and I bet there are a gazillion emails for me to go through!
At least I can console myself with the fact that I only work mornings, and that this week is only 4 days as I have got Oliver on Thursday :-)
There are people with a lot worse jobs than me, I know that I'm lucky to have a job that I do quite like, it's the getting up early and being out of the house I don't like.
I just wanted to mention the book in my last post before I go.
I don't tend to recommend too many books because we all have different ideas of what a good book is, but when I do come across something that I really can't put down well, I like to mention it.
This is the story of 10 year old August Pullman, who was born with a cleft palate and facial disfigurements and his journey through his first year at school after being home-schooled. The story is split into parts, Augusts, some of his friends and his sister, all have there own story to tell of August and their feelings.
Now this is not a sad story, although there are some tear jerking moments in there, it's a very inspiring story (and funny too in parts), of a little boy who just thinks of himself as that, a little boy like any other.
The edition I read is the re-written for adults version, (below) as the original was aimed at teenage readers, I don't know how different the two books are, I'm just saying.
I'd love to hear what you thought If you decide to read it.
Until next time
