Great Meet Up at Nuneaton

Wow what a fabulous day - 13 of my friends joined me in Nuneaton for another Meet Up. We meet at my school in the library which is a brilliant room for stitching, so light and airy, in fact we had natural light all day, I did not put any of the lights on.

Some of my friends are staying locally in hotels, some are travelling home by train and some are driving. It's a great day and so exciting when everyoine travels over - some from quite a long way. After the Meet Up we went to a local pub and had a three course carvery, for £3.50 (yes honestly) and it's always delicious.

Here we all are busy stitching away :) and we are Kathy, Paula, Lynn, Julie, Maggie, Joyce, Hazel, Tracy, Chris, Tina, Lynn, Vicki and Angie.


This is the exchange bag I put together and Lynn won. We played a "right/left" game to swap bags which was very funny and revealed some right left problems LOL


And this is the chart I won in the exchange from Paula - thanks I love it :)


There were so many gorgeous piece sof work displayed around, this is my display which includes Lynn's RR - she was surprised when she spotted it hee hee


and finally this is the Important bookmark kit I put together for the day. It is now release for sale to raise money for my charities on Aimetu's Stitchery. With the raffle and the kits I sold I have been able to add another £40 to the charity pot - thank you everyone :) 


I have had a fabulous day - I'm so looking forward to the next one in the Autumn - thank you :)
