When I do machine embroidery sometimes I dive straight in and do the project other times I test sew a piece to see if the colours and fabrics go together. Luckily for our Grandson Jacob I did just this, otherwise he would have been a bit scared of the owl I was making for him. Lets say that plainer colours work better together.
Last Monday I was so surprised to get a parcel from Bobbie Lynn for Mother's Day.
Thank you so much Bobbie Lynn.
Italy has a new citizen, congratulations to my nephew Ryan and Edy and big Sister Faye on the arrival of Emily May last Friday. Best wishes to you all.
Unfortunately there is one less amongst us, today our Son-in-law Julian says goodbye to his Nan in New Zealand. Love and prayers to Julian Ainsley Jacob Debbie Fiona Alisdair and family.
I have been reading Mrs Lincoln's Dressmaker by Jennifer Chiaverini. I am not enjoying this as much as her other novels. I have just flicked to the back and saw that the lady that the story revolves around had written her own novel. Think I will try to read that one. This one seems to be a bit slow going. Has anyone else read this book. I would be interested to hear what you thought of it. The copy I am reading is in big print so it is quick to read in that respect.
