Last weekend was our fourth round in the scout wine tasting and that's in Aimetu's too http://aimetus.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/wine-challenge-round-4.html
We are off to the caravan this weekend and will be closing it for the summer - a little early this year but the reason my blog title is 'mid trip' is because next Monday Hubby and I are off to Turkey for a week of doing nothing !! Not our usual style of holiday but we both just want a complete rest. So with going away and a busy autumn I doubt we'll visit Wales again until 2015.
I received my Holiday Exchange from Dusty this week - it's stunning. Thank you Dusty for my beautiful biscornu, threads and chart. Dusty stitched a Chatelaine design - so lovely and perfect colours which match my tablecloth.

Dusty is coming to visit us in November, a whole week which will include the Needlecraft Haven Autumn Meet Up. I'm so excited to be able to meet and spend time together after so many years corresponding online across cyber space. I did wonder if Dusty's brochure was a hint for a return visit.

Jo's novel matches Jane's and is a delight to read following the activities of the big house and how it relates to the servants. Jo said her inspiration came from reading P&P (many times) and wondering who the other characters were who appeared with carriages, posies for shoes and other items. She began to think about their life and Longbourn was written.
It was a lovely talk, with coffee and cake from the Historic Tea Room. Jo very kindly signed my well read, well used book.
Well I had best go and pack for the weekend - stitching will be a priority as I am looking forward to some stitching time - it's been missing for a few weeks.
Have a good weekend everyone, thank you for calling by and reading my news :)
