Another new start!

Those of you who have been coming here for a while will know that i'm on the committee for the annual fruit and veg show and the stitching club always make gifts for winners to keep to accompany the trophies (these have to be given back each year). This year it's my turn to stitch the gift for 'Best in Show'. I've found a lovely floral alphabet and have made a start in plenty of time for the show 5th September, its from Donna Koolers 555 fabulous cross stitch patterns.
We're still having wet and windy weather here, not nice at all and its turned really cool, what better place to be than nice and cosy and curled up looking like bookends on the sofa in the conservatory!! I think i might join them in there this afternoon and put a stitch or two into Beatrix ....

What a lovely new start and nice that you get something to keep when you have to give the trophy back!

We had a wet and cool weekend, today is looking beautiful but I might just stay in and stitch anyhow!
