round of applause to the police

they've caught our burglar !!! They came over to take a statement from DH last night, he was a young man who had addictions and was sleeping rough in one of the unused sheds, they caught him in the early hours of Monday night/Tuesday morning, so it looks like we've seen the last of all the tools etc, but WELL DONE to the local bobbies for their hard work on this occasion ...









It was Kathy's Birthday yesterday so i can now show you the 'secret surprise' i stitched for her. The design is 'Love' by JBW and is stitched on 28ct linen 'waterlily' using DMC variegated threads. I'd seen one of these on another blog and thought it would make a nice gift
