Progress at last

I have stitched the second one of the Anniversaries of the Heart by BlackBird designs. I have decided to do these in 'fours' rather than one big piece with all of them on.
The first four are going to be my own children using the months they were born. So these two are my sons born in January and February. 

And I have stitched a little of LHN natures beauty. I am stitching this in a SAL with stitching sisters in Needlecraft Haven on Wednesday evenings.. so I will be happily stitching this evening.

Here's the progress on this design by Sudberry. It is a Welcome sampler with a cat. I love this..

So I feel I have done really well in November because as well as my stitching I have made my hall and landing curtains which I found more difficult than I remember when I was younger... but they are up and look fantastic, which I would expect as it is Laura Ashley material.....

The colour is a little more acqua than the photo shows, but they match the paint and wall paper.. Laura Ashley of course! I think I have been furnishing my homes with Laura Ashley colours for years!

Happy stitching all

Come and join 12friends

I have my own yahoo group, called 12friends2  and  it has been going since February 2003. Its a chit chat group for women and we love to hear about each other....our families, our grand children and what we do through our days and weeks. We have members in NZ, US, one in France and several in UK but it would be nice to have some new women in the group.
It would suit some one who likes to tell about their life and what they like to do..and who has the time to spare to post messages through the week.
So if you live alone, or has time in the day when you feel the need for company come and join us. The only rules we have are the usually ones, which good women would adhere to without being asked!

The button to join is on the side bar..
We cry with you in your sad times and we are always there..
But if you come and join us,  you will go to bed laughing at the silly things we do and say and wondering what next??

Lest We Forget..

I have attended a lovely service this morning at a local cenotaph, so many people were there.  The names of those who were on the cenotaph were read out, and even the traffic stopped.
Sad day for many who I am sure are weeping in their hearts when they remember their men who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
