Fun Day Out.

Wednesday night my friend Pammi asked me what i was doing Thursday. "Nothing" i replied. She then asked would i like to go & have a stitching day with Joy. "Yes, sounds good" So off we set on our road trip down to Joy's house. On arrival we found that Nikki had dropped in for a visit as well. The morning was filled with laughter & chatting. Nikki had to leave before lunch as she had stock to make. I guess you are wondering did any stitching get done after lunch then? I can tell you no that the afternoon was filled with more laughter & chatting.

Whilst at Joy's i got her latest pattern,
Her gorgeous Doctor's bag. Though i really think she should've given me the beautiful black one she made. :) hehe

We then went for a drive over to Nikki's home where she has her shop situated. I purchased a few things there,
Some lovely patterns &
fat 1/4's plus gorgeous cat & birdhouse buttons. Then we had more laughter & chatting with Nikki. Such a fabulous fun day. Thanks girls.

As you saw in my previous post i'm in an online group who swapped Christmas stockings. I can now show you what i sent my partner Jenny,

The front. I used either running postman or hugs n kisses Cottage Garden thread for the embroidery.
The back.
Happy Stitching,
