I finished a little gift for our son in his new flat, I wanted to stitch something but nothing girlie - I found this online and it's perfect He gave quite a chuckle when he opened it.

Tuesday I did a very small bit on my September Drawn Thread as I had hurt my ankle and felt a little out of sorts. It's all ok now but I just didn't feel like doing much.
Wednesday was stitching night in the Parlour on Needlecraft Haven and I started a new house on my CCN Santa's Village table cloth - North Pole Post Office. It's stitched over one so doesn't look much but this little bit took all evening.

I just managed to finish the June Monthly Christmas Challenge in time for the reveal - the design for June was Coroncina Noel" by Luli

Today I have been sorting out the wine for the next round of tasting in the Scout 100 Challenge - it's Europe this time but not France as that has a tasting of it's own in September.
Last Friday was our 25th Anniversary party, we've had some lovely cards, thank you everyone. I bought some lovely ribbon yesterday that has silver hearts on and says 'All my love' which I've used to bundle them up - we still have the family ones out. We had a super evening meeting friends and family, some of whom we had not seen for over 15 years.
