Thought I would share a couple of pics from my trip to Barry Island, South wales on Friday Night. Went to visit a couple of friends I met on JAF (Jonas Armstrong Fansite) a couple of years ago... we are now firm friends and hope things stay that way.
This pic is of Janie, Sue, Lucky and myself. Janie and Lucky I met on JAF and I met Sue for the first time that night. She has a very good taste in music so we got on great!! Lucky has a brownie in her mouth which is making her look a bit evil but I think its quite a good picture!
This next pic is of Janie, Sue and myself. I really didnt want to be in that pic so was kinda edging to the edge of the sofa but they managed to get me in lol!We had a drink, watched Mama Mia and had a right laugh - it was a brilliant night. We then stayed at Luckys house and then I caught the train back to Bristol on Sat morning.
Looking forward to seeing them all again soon!

Thought I would take this chance to show off some of my previous cross stitch finishes. Am not the best at taking pics of my work so apologies for the poor quality of some of the pics.... any tips greatfully recieved :)
This first piece is a section of Lilly of the Valley by Rachel Anderson. The chart was made by Heaven and Earth Designs.... I just love that website - there are some beautifull pieces on there! I finished this middle of last year and it took me just over a month. It was part of a round robin I took part in with 3 other ladies.
This next piece is called Cool Cats, cant remember who the kit was by but I think it was Sunset or another American companyIt was a christmas present from hubby a couple of years ago and took me about a month and a half to complete
This next piece (left) is a Mirabillia design and is one of my favorite finishes. She took me ages to complete, over a year I think but was definately worth all the hard work I put it. She is Beautiful.
This next item was an exchange piece I made for Eva in Canada. I Stitched thedesign and made it into a small decorative cushion. This is a tatty teddy design and it took me approx 1 month (dreaded back stitch took forever!!)
Next is two of my winnie the pooh pieces. I love these designs and were a joy to stitch (blocks of colour and very easy to follow charts!
Thats it for now, thanks for reading :) x
