Catching up since my last post....

It has been a while!  Time has run away from me as there seems to have been a lot going on, so I thought I should catch up a bit!  As a result, this is going to be another long post!  What have I been doing?  Well, I had a long weekend trip to Thessaloniki in Greece to attend a friend's wedding.  The weather was hot and the wedding was beautiful.

We had a lovely day visit to a beautiful National Trust property called Stourhead (which is where they filmed some of the 2005 version of the film Pride and Prejudice).  Such a beautiful house and gardens.

Then we had two and a half weeks away in our camper van travelling through France down to the border with Spain and back.

We travelled back via Switzerland.  The first time I have been back since we moved back to the UK in 2021.  It was lovely to see it again.

I have also had a couple of trips up to Norwich to visit family including a quick visit to help my daughter move house.  Needless to say with all the travelling from place to place I haven't had a lot of time to stitch but, I did take my watercolour paints to France and you can see some of my finished sketches here on my 2023 projects page.

I am hoping that things will settle down a little now and I will be able to get back to my needlework projects.  I did attend a Regional Day held by my Quilt Guild on Saturday just gone and followed that with a workshop on Sunday with guest artist Kate Findlay.  I loved the workshop and was delighted with the piece I made.

I just need to get it framed!

Well, that's all for the moment.  Hopefully I will have more needlework projects to show you next time!  Until then.... 😊 xx
