Hello everyone, Yes I'm here again after a few weeks 'missing in action'. I am STILL having problems with the car again on the way to DD's and AGAIN with the brakes which this time seized up completely so another man in a yellow van was called for and this time the car has been at the garage for a week, to say I am fed up with it is the understatement of the week. I have been staying at DD's doing some babysitting and helping her with the publicity for her new job, last Monday 4 of us delivered 1,700 leaflets in the area around her venue... Phewww!!!I'm still stiff from all that walking.
Last time I promised you all a 'look see' at the NEC pictures I took so I'll start right here with a few that really caught my eye. I tried to remember to get the makers names this year so full credit can be given where it is due.Plus I have been doing some sewing and have a finish to share with you Yes I said A FINISH! Details at the end.

Now on to that FINISH, this is something I have had on the go for about 6 months, I got the pattern for the Redwork embroidery by Lenna Green as a free download when I joined the website of the Stitching Cow a great Australian blog that I follow. I fancied doing some embroidery and this caught my attention, having worked the embroidery I thought it would be nice as a small wall hanging as I quilted diagonal straight lines, then used some pretty 'christmnassy' fabric from the stash and hey presto, I even made a label using the text on my machine. I hope you are impressed as I don't usually have anything to do with the 'C' word till at least mid November then decide it's too late to start a project for this year. My current Hand sewn project is a needle case made from felt also a free download but I can't remember where from (Sorry!! if it was your blog do let me know then I can send you a picture of the finished needle-case). Well thats all for now folks.
See you soon (I Hope)
See you soon (I Hope)
