Thank You

Wild Garlic
You can't get rid of me that easily ....  I have now got round to setting up my own personal blog, not that I have done much stitching recently.  Thank you to everyone not only for the card and leaving gift, but also for making my time with the Pannal Textile Group such an enjoyable experience.  I shall miss you all very much.  I am going to use the money to buy some plants for our new garden.  The picture above is the wild bit with the stream.  It is currently full of wild garlic, but the nettles, brambles and Jack in the Hedge are sprouting at a rate of knots.  I am back up in Yorkshire for a few days soon and then I will have the Malvern Spring Quilt Show to look forward to when I come back.

Work in progress

I decided to downsize the pages I was working on as they seemed to take a lot of work to fill them up.  Wrong decision!  I now have to do lots of pages to fit all the work on.  Should I go for minature next time or maybe A2?
