We had a wonderful weekend in Yorkshire. Saturday the weather was cold and windy but at least dry, so we wrapped up warmly after lunch and went to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. We walked for miles and returned to base feeling very hungry. Luckily our hostess is one of the best cooks I know so it was not long before we were fed with an excellent meal. Sunday we awoke to the sunshine, it was a beautiful day and we spent the morning in the garden - with three boistrous dogs there was no chance of sitting back and relaxing lol, there was always a ball or a stick on your lap and an appealing face wanting you to play. After an excellent lunch we went of the The Victoria Tower where we had excellent views of the surrounding countryside.
We got home about half past six yesterday and I think the stitching break had done me the world of good. I was just bursting to stitch and out came UFO. I got the wee bee (he has lovely twinkley wings its such a shame you cant see them) and the bird done AND I stitched two Ivy leaves, so Julie and Karen should be pleased. As for Mr Stick well I think he can forgive a lot of sins for that.
Cyn asked a while back if she could see a bigger picture and not just the letter I was working on,
so here it is just for you Cyn.
On a completely different thread I went to meet Coll this morning of CollsCreations and we got on so well I ended up staying for lunch. She is coming to me next month and I am really looking forward to meeting her again. It was lovely to meet someone who was on the same wavelengh and we talked stitch, stitch and more stitch all the way which was lovely. We also did a lot of laughing and I always think that is a good thing and I am sure we are on our way to becoming firm friends in time.
