Well I'm back from the show, worn out but happy!!! I spent loads of money, got some nice evenweave, buttons, bibbon, a good deal with the magazine Cross Stitcher (3 issues for a £1) and a lovely chart of a naked woman (I know it sounds odd) but I love it its just stitched in black and grey and mostly just the out line of her body all except her hair which is a solid area of stitches, I'll take a photo later. I'll stitch her on white EW , I have a piece that has a little sparkle in it, so should look nice.

Hi, aren't I clever!!! just worked out how to get a nice background. took me about an hour, back wards and forwards I had about five saved but had to work out that I had to remove one before I could change to another, anyway I think this is nice for now. Eileen
well here I am about time too!!!! I'm just no good at writing on blogs. I've finished quite a few bits of stitching, several ornaments for my group (can't post a picture of them all, as i havn't sent them out yet) I've also sent the biscornu to my partner in the Tiny Treasures group. I've also done a lot of stitching on my Indian but havn't taken a photo yet.
I had a lovely St Patricks Day evening (Tuesday) Mick and I met up with friends we havn't seen for years so I really enjoyed catching up with all the news.
It was my Granddaughter's birthday on the 13th so we had a nice week-end going out with her and eating lots of cake (she is 3)
The best news is I'm going to a stitching show tomorrow!!! can't wait, I go to two a year, so i hope to stock up with some even weave, which I can't get near here (only white or biege) and I'm sure I shall find lots more to buy.
thanks for dropping in
