Post 100 - and a great stitcher's day

I cannot believe this is my 100th post and although I have just had a giveaway I'm having another one :) I will enter everyone who replies to this blog and will be sending a little surprise gift to the person my DD picks out of a hat - good luck.

I've had a fabulous day today which is good because I've been having a bit of a stressful time which is why I've not been blogging much. Nothing really in particular just lots of stuff all at once :(.

Anyway today was a meet up here in Nuneaton organised by Lynn. All these stitchers came: Jacqui and Craig, Kathy, Chris, Tina, Hazel, Tracey, Maureen, Angie, Jan (my mum), Vicki, and Lara and her mum. We've had a brilliant day finshed off by a lovely meal in the pub. The photos say it all. Thanks Lynn it was a lovely day.


and this was my gorgeous goody bag - thanks Tina its lovely.




Last weekend DH and I went to London and had a fab time. We went to St Pauls Cathedral and climbed to the top of the dome to the Goldern Gallery. Saturday we went to a wine fair and then walked along the Thames back to the tube - it was lovely.


I received this beautiful ornament from Barbara for Miss-tree.



I have quite a few now, with a few more being made (I don't know why some of my photos are sideways,they aren't on my pc)
On the 18th October we are doing a 6 mile walk for The Dog's Trust - we'd be grateful for any donations - either on our online page or by post. The Dog's Trust helped us with our first dog and of course saved Ruby :)

Good luck with my giveaway - happy stitching.
