We did manage to capture a few London photo without the smiling faces getting in the way. We were so lucky in that at Buckingham Palace the mounted police were escorting visiting Diplomats back to their Embassies. The state carriages looked splendid - a real treat to see.

The stitching and beading that everyone brought to show was stunning - I'm not sure who stitched what but it was all so beautiful.
As always we had a book exchange, a raffle (the money goes to keep Needlecraft Haven advert free) and a Goody Bag exchange. The theme this time was Saints (as a tribute to the pub' new name) I made lemon muffins and chocolate and orange cupcakes for the exchange (St Clements in the nursery rhyme).

Angi was my Goody Bag partner and my Book Exchange partner - her bag was themed on St George and was full of items to do with England. My bag was themed on St Ambrose the saint of Bee Keepers and Angi won mine so a good swap. Angi was also my Book Exchange partner.

We found a lovely tea room in Moreton-in-the-Marsh called Mrs T Potts - super cheese scones with onion chutney and cream cheese. As the photos show it's been an amazing week with Dusty here - I will be very, very sad when she goes home but we have already made plans for her return !!!
