This design is called Peace Inside by Midsummer Night Designs. I loved this from the first moment I spotted it. Our home is out in a country village and we love to sit and watch the birds each morning. Our door is always open to friends and family and we do love to entertain. Being a cat lover, I was thrilled to see a little cat stitched in the piece as well. I've yet to have this one framed but it sits very nicely on a tabletop easel.
This little piece just seems to embody our home and I'm very proud to display it.
And now for my news - here are a few more of the gifts I stitched for colleagues at work.
|Dee - who collects headgehogs and I had no idea|

|My gift for the Staffroom - it hangs next to the clock !!|
I had a great last day at school - no cover lessons which made a lovely change. Allthe students left at lunchtime and all the staff went to the main hall for speeches and presentations, not something I find easy but it went ok. Altogether there were 16 people leaving so the presents took a while. Quite a few people were retiring (like me, but they were slightly older hee hee) and some moving onto pastures new. A few tears all round but it was a great atmosphere and lovely to see everyone to say goodbye.
I was overwhelmed with gifts from individual members of staff; the cleaners had also bought me a gorgeous scarf and Sue had made a beautiful card. here is the mantle full of my cards - I have to keep re-reading as there is too much to take in.
|Nick gave me a card too - so sweet of him.|
School had had a collection as had the English Department - I couldn't believe how much people had given as my gifts were amazing; Lots of Cath Kidston items as well as a huge french sign, I'm not sure where it will go but it is beautiful.

Straight after school Nick and I caught the train from Nuneaton to London Euston and on to St Pancras as Nick had booked us on the Eurostar for a 3 day trip to Brussels. It was amazing - the whole day was very emotional added to by Eurostar who just finihsed it off perfectly - I have blogged about our travels on my other blog Aimetu's
Thanks for popping by - I should have some more exciting stitching news soon - if you'd like to see all the gifts I stitched for my school colleagues they are in my Flickr Album.
