June, Orts and a little bit of holiday

We had an amazing time in France - far too much good food, speciality beer and wine. Here's a few photos:
The view from our bedroom window
Nick snapping the harbour
Our favourite bar
On our picnic on the last day
Me and the Chemin de Feu steam train
These are the benches we sat at most evenings with a beer or
bottle of wine (the photo is taken from the other side the estuary -
the benches are the beige squares under the trees)
We really did have an amazing time - especially trying many beers in the Au Vieux Port (not all in one night) I did put photos on facebook and there are some in my online album AimetuClare.

Whilst away I stitched The Drawn Thread - June - but I'm not finishing it until I have stitched July, August and September so I can finish them altogether. I am very behind with these but they will all be ready for next year :) 
The Drawn Thread - June
I have not started another project but have one ready to go (and I might get a bit done after writing this) As always it's a gift so I can't share it just yet BUT it needs to be done quite quickly so you won't have to wait long.

Needlecraft Haven is very busy at the moment - we have just finished the Holiday Exchange but I have to finish mine off so no photos yet. The Autumn Exchange and Spooky Exchange are both open, the September monthly challenge is up and the 31st Orts jar photos are up. Julie hosts the UFO stitching and now that Strictly is back we are Strictly UFO-ing - I have mine ready to go on Saturday.

Here's my Orts jar - I'm very surprised at how full it's getting - but then I have stitched an huge amount this year already.
Orts Jar - August 2013
And finally an apology - I am very out of touch with everyone's blog with being on holiday - I will be blog reading now I'm back but only new posts or it will take forever. I'm sure there will be lots of stitching news.

Thanks for popping by Aimetu's Stitching and reading my latest news.

Looks like you had a great time, I must sort out a UFO for Strictly

Lovely pics of your hols, I like the one of you on the train, I could imagine you waving the spotted hanky.

Great stitching, am wondering what you've chosen for StrictlyUFO, could it be a SAL that you started and have only done the border and a little?? the name escapes me but I know what it looks like lol.

Love your finish.

I couldn't moderate Barb's post but this was her message - ooh la la Clare , sounds as if you had a super time. I think I must mail you about the exchanges . Note to self to do that tomorrow.
