April sun

What another lovely sunny day, May get some stitching done.
At the weekend I went to the Dalby Crafters monthly meet up, I haven't been since October and after a phone call with my friend Wendy, It was decided it was about time we returned. Since we last went they had changed venue, from the scout hut to the village hall, It is a bit smaller(The doors are tiny) but lots of bright natural light. It was a lovely day, I got lots done.

I did a design by Paper Panda
I also started a design by RowanDean I bought at Olympia Knitting and Stitching show.
It is called Echinacea "Paradiso"
I have also stitched on Winter Sampler By InkCircles, I will share a photo next time.
Thank you for stopping by

I am a bit of a Dreamer at times, and wish that I could find something I want or need easier. One of those things would be to find a café where I could go and stitch or Craft for a couple of hours without being made to feel that I need to move so others can sit where I am. And for it to be a light and airy space and a nice atmosphere.

Once again I am apologising as I have no stitching pics to show, but I do have some Crafting to show.
I have been so busy with work, I have managed to fit in some crafting even though it was for work!
I have done some papercrafting for awards at work for Inspirational Women Of the Year, Derby and Derbyshire. Here they are all lined up ready to be awarded! It was a fantastic night!

I am going to the Olympia Knitting and Stitching show on Sunday, Can't wait!!

I hope you are all well!! xx

An Update

I am currently at a friend's house teenager/house sitting, so she can go out and enjoy herself, which she really needs! I have done as much as I can on the crochet I showed you, I bought six balls, well it does not go very far, I am hoping I can get some more of the same dyelot next week!
So luckily I also brought this with me, It's not wool but textile yarn called Boodles.
Not sure what I am making with this either will have to see, I was going to make a bag but need to look for a pattern for that.

I am still trying to get back into blog reading, I have been doing but not commenting.
Thank you for visiting!

Okay New Starts for a New year

First new start is Welcome by Alesandra Adelaide Needleworks
And the second new start is a well I am hoping to be a sort of shawl/Scarf thing but just using the basic granny Stripe from Lucy's Attic.
I am using Sirdar Kiko super chunky wool Shade 0413 and size 10.0mm hook.
I am hoping to sort out a monthly craft group at where I work but not sure if there will be much interest, Hopefully if I market it properly then it will happen.
I have been very busy since last year, I am working now and I moved house so still trying to get sorted. I think that is why my interest in my crafts has come back.
Well hopefully my posts won't be so long in between!

A New day and a New year!

I am hoping to start posting again, I have started a new project '*sigh* why does she not finish her UFO's I can hear you ask' Well maybe one day, I have to start small, as I have not got into the swing of doing all the time ...Yet!

Today I went to the annual meet up in Nuneaton with the ladies from Needlecraft Haven. I actually stitched the last letter on the piece I started last time I went to Nuneaton, Just the back stitch to go.
As always these days go to quickly.
Lots of chatting and stitching done.

So sad

I always hoped that this day would never come, Cathey of Pumpkin Patch has passed away, I haven't blogged very much lately but I need to post this, as she was such an inspirational lady, to read her posts when most people would be down, she cheered you with her positive and funny view of everything and gave you a reason to enjoy life. It breaks my heart to know that her 'junior' will not have this inspirational lady in his life as he grows. But I am sure his family will let him know what a lovely lady she is.
Caring about others when she herself was battling cancer.
When I see Pumpkins I always think of Cathey, the past year I haven't been apart of the blogging community but know that everyone will be sadden by the loss of  'Pumpkin'

My thoughts are with her family and close friends.

If you are one of the very few who have not had the pleasure of knowing Cathey Please visit her Friends blog to see some wonderful photos of a truly Inspirational Woman.
