Slow progress on the stitching front...

..this piece has progressed a little..still some work to do on it though..
..I haven't been stitching too much lately..we spent a couple of days in the garden digging out some shrubs that were past their best (gee some of those roots were hard to get out) and then did some replanting.. must have been too much for my stitching arm..I was getting a pain in my elbow as I was stitching have given it a I feel the need to get on with some projects that are waiting for me..

A Friday spent with Friends

One of the good things about being on holiday is that I'm able to spend Friday with a very special group of ladies who make up the stitching group I attend.  Usually I just get to call in after school each week.  Last Friday was special though, as we made a whole day of it.
We went out to a special little place called the Crafty Byre.  What a little treasure of a place it is, they run some classes, have a lovely selection of fabrics to tempt you,  and from this week the Christmas Shop will be set up..with even more lovely things to buy.
We all took a plate and had sorted things so we had morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea covered as well as some nibbles to keep up our energy!
We had a mystery bag waiting for us...
It was a great day with lots of talking, lots of eating...this is the first time I have worked with felt and this is what I achieved ...
 I had a fabulous time.  It wasn't too hard to see who had been distracted by talking and who was able to multi task and keep stitching at the end of the day ( not me!).
