I'm Back!

I'm back from my holiday in Chapel St Leonards. Had a lovely time. The weather was lovely until Thursday when it absolutely threw it down but it didn't stop us we still had a fantastic time. We visited Natureland, Church Farm Museusm and visited the beach and played cricket. I managed to get some stitching done whilst the boys went to the Fun Pool on the site we stayed at. The lighting was fantastic and I really enjoyed watching the boys in the pool and slide whilst I stitched. This is my new start and progress on Blue Ribbons Peppermint Twist. I have to say I'm quite pleased with how much I got done.

Today I started my first "weekend project". I was too tired yesterday after driving home to do any stitching because I had a very late night on Friday as at the site where we were staying Shawaddywaddy were on. They were fantastic. Yes I know I am sad lol. So this is just one day's stitching which I don't think is too bad between washing and cooking etc.

This week I am going to restart my LHN Ornie "Red House in Winter" so keep your fingers crossed for me that I actually manage to get this one done as I soooo want to. It is one of my favourites although I think I may have said that about all of them lol.

Until next time, happy stitching.

Lesleyanne xx

Love your start on the Blue Ribbon design. It is going to be absolutely beautiful when its finished.
Good luck with the LHN Ornament. I don't think I can pick a favorite although I like anything with a house.

I remember going to see Shawaddywaddy in concert when I was young and I had a signed poster on my wall for years!!

I really do wish I hadn't looked at your blog, I now want that peppermint twist design, it looks great.
