Nuneaton Meet up

Today was the Needlecraft Haven Meet up in Nuneaton, and it was in a pub called The Abbey, which we have had a meal in before, after one of the previous meet ups at the school.
What a lovely day it was, I even stitched which surprised me, as I thought I may just sit there but I was actually looking forward to stitching. Well it was a new start. LOL

Three of the ladies are missing from the photos, they had to leave early.

Lots of lovely items that have been made by several of the ladies

I especially love Lindsay's beaded items!!

Here is what I was stitching on, this was a one off design by Nia Cross Stitch
We had an Afternoon Tea Goodie bag exchange
Here is what I put together, Lindsay was the lady to receive mine.

I received this lovely box full of goodies from Clare

We also had a Mystery book exchange, where we had to wrap a book up, and then pick a book.
No photos but I gave Jodi Picoult, House rules.
Ursh received my book and I received her book
I received Me before You by Jojo Moyes which is a World Book Night choice this year.
I had a truly lovely day, even though I was worried before going, I am glad I did! It was lovely to see everyone again.

I am determined to get my friendship quilt finished, I am so sorry to everyone who sent me fabric and I haven't even touched it for months. For quite a while I have been suffering with depression and I am slowly fighting my way out. I need a project to get me motivated again, and I think that will be the one.
Apart from my SS RR I did with some ladies on the Needlecraft Haven board, I have not touched a needle for quite some time.

Although yesterday I finally made some covers for my son's Recurve bow, so he does not need the plastic bags they came in anymore.

I bought two pillowcases from a charity shop so half my work was already done, (he he) I have only used one pillowcase so I have a spare if he needs another one doing.
I was supposed to be going to my Monthly craft group today, it was cancelled last month because of the snow, and I was going except Reece reminded me about his final Archery Group lessons last night, yeah loads of notice, although my fault for not writing on the calendar!!
Sigh the joys of being a Mum!
I hope I can make the next one it seems like such a long time since I have been, the last one was where I crocheted the bag.
I hope everyone is well. I try and read blogs but I don't always comment Sorry!

Speciality Stitch RR

I have received my RR back from Mary, This was stitched on by a few ladies from the Needlecraft Haven Forum. I have put a bobbin next to it so you can see how diddy it is. I love it!! I still need to stitch my part and I am going to make it into a bookmark!
I love how it looks with just three colours! I just hope it wasn't a headache for the ladies to stitch on!!
