1st Blogoversary

Well this is the end of my 1st year of writing a blog I have enjoyed sharing with people what I have been stitching and showing all the exchanges I have received from other people. thank you to all the people who have left comments I enjoy reading them, I do spend alot of time reading other blogs there is alot of inspiration out there you get so many idea's from seeing what other people are doing.

The other weekend I attended a workshop by Jane Greenoff of The Cross Stitch Guild with my mother, it was actually a weekend workshop but as it was only in Leeds which is 20 miles away we just attended for the day.
Jane is above(in red) showing a Lady what to do.

Since it was so close to Christmas it had a Christmas Theme, there was two projects which we were given I decided to do the Christmas Biscornu decoration which is above.

Here is my Mum she snipping her threads on the Hardanger part.

Here are some of the other ladies and off course there was a shop to add to our stash, I was very good I didn't buy anything but my Mum did.

Your Christmas biscornu looks so pretty. I bet you were having a lot of fun at the class.
