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.
