"With Needle and Thread."

Hello,

Friday Night with Friends was on on Friday evening. There were 22 ladies from across the globe stitching up a storm. Thanks Cheryll for hosting this event.


I worked on a small cross stitch from the designer Casa Mia. I chose my own colours for this.Please note there are some extremely cute designs that are available for free from this site.

I missed the first bit of the opening ceremony of the Olympics but I was thoroughly impressed with what I saw. So glad to see that the environment took centre stage. Hopefully this will give our politicians the shove in the right direction. Off my soapbox now and back to watching the Australian ladies playing Hockey.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Happy days.
Bev C

Wonderful stitchery in your colours. I like it and should make cross-stitch in the next time. Long ago i did a lot of great ABC Samplers.

I couldn't see the olympic opening live, because in Germany it startet at 1am and i had to sleep ;-))

Greetings
Iris

I've been doing a bit of cross stitch lately - thanks for the link, I needed a nice little tree. Back to knitting while the Games are on. Such a terrific time waster!

I do so envy your stitching with friends group… for its regularity, its supportive elements, for the joy.
You have stirred me to once again have a cross stitch project next to my parlor chair, usefully and enjoyably getting my hands on projects while watching some sort of program in the evenings. thanks.
