Hello friends ,

Well I am happy to say The Garden Craft & Hobby Fayre was a great success , the weather was beautiful , it was raining until the show opened  but the sun came out and it was a hot day when we closed it started raining again so how lucky we were.

It was allot of hard work and my DH was chair so we were there working on setting up 3 days before  with our team.

Thanks to the team & friends it was a wonderful day.

So here we are going into the Summer's end

But it will be so sad to say goodbye to Summer maybe we will get some wonderful sunny days this Autumn we have done the last few years .

Not allot of stitching but I have been trying to stitch if I can find a few moments which have been very rare this week

I am also working on a couple of exchanges before I have a late summer break , and then it will be full steam ahead for lots of winter stitching.

I have kitted up 4 big bags of charts so I am ready for the Autumn & Winter , my needle will be steaming hot ha.

Ok here is a little freebie I found Here.

 This is so sweet not sure how to finish it yet , I may make it into a pillow it is for one of my friends she has no PC.

I think the material matches well just have to find some other bits to add.


 I had a few gifts from two of my lovely friends at my club last week .

 First up a lovely tiny  Knitted Teddy.

Thank you Marion I love Ted .

And from sweet Mo a runner, this is also vey beautiful.

Thank you Mo .
She knows I love little girls and sun bonnet Sue is one of my favourites .

And my sweet friend Reba sent me these lovely hand made cards , thank you sweet friend just beautiful.

Beautiful 3D

And another of my favourite's I just love rabbits well we both do.


 Well I never won any thing for my stitching this year at the show , but I am so happy some of my ladies did, sorry I didn't have time to take photos but a friend gave me a couple to show.

The flower and veg Judge .

 And here is what we won my DH won 3 first and 3 second and 1 third on veg , flowers and photography.  Well done hubby.

And here is mine

For Floral art , Floral and Photography.

2 first 1 third and 1 second and a personal message from the judge about my 1st for floral art .
Not bad for little old me.

 The Vikings came .

The Vikings 
Oh how great they were  they set up a Viking village and put on a great show they stayed other night .
They also brought a couple of wolf dogs and a large Raven the children loved them .


I will try and get a few more photos , I never had much free time to take any photos.

 One more show tomorrow and that's it for this year.
Just a little walk today the garden is still blooming like mad.

Well that's it from me folks .
I will try and catch up with my blog reading this week , hope to find a few more hours in the day .
Thank you all for your last comments always love reading them all ,  take care all.
