We are off to London on Friday for a couple of nights and then Paris for a few more. It is a special holiday as its or 25th Wedding Anniversary next Tuesday and we will be in Paris to celebrate ( a bonus of me leaving work as I would not have been able to have to actual day off)
Anyway I have finished my travel wallet today - I had the idea from my friend Mary who stitched me a project case for an exchange one autumn. She kindly sent me the instructions which helped although my wallet is slightly different. I did a bit at a time over three days as I have been quite worried if it would work. Today I have finished it and I love it :)

To mark our anniversary we're fundraising for Pancreatic Cancer in his memory - and help our future generations - our just giving page is https://www.justgiving.com/NickClareHearnden25th/
There's a few old photos on there too :) I still have my dress, flowers and veil. They will be out at the party with our album - I'm sure we'll all have a chuckle at the 1980's fashions :)
I haven't done any shareable stitching but I have been creative. Over the last few months I have begun wine making again and now have a demijohn of dandelion wine steadily clearing and rhubarb wine still bubbling away.

Yesterday I collected a bucket full of elderflowers - some to make cordial and some to make wine. The cordial is done; I've made a large bottle for us, a smaller one for my Mum and frozen the rest.
The wine is now fermenting in a bucket until we return from France but here are the flowers in the saucepan with lemons. The kitchen smelt wonderful.
