Glad Tidings - Shepherds Bush Part 2

I mentioned in my earlier post that I had also completed 'Glad Tidings' the Picture as well as the little fob, and so without further ado - Here it is.......



......again this was a wonderful small sampler to do, I really enjoyed every stitch and the rich warm colours of the silk thread was a joy to use. This was of course a kit and I haven't changed anything about it - Yep you heard me right I haven't changed a thing, I loved the fabric and the design and the colours -- OO I could go on and on LOL!!

I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas, I did, I was expecting it to be quiet for me as this was my first Christmas on my own, but it turned out not to be so. The 2 eldest nephews turned up on my doorstep this was after I had had lots of phone calls from my mum, dad, sister and smallest nephew and neice. (Mum and I opened presents over the phone together, which was great fun and quite a giggle).

They stopped by me before they went to their grandmothers (Marks mum), I was so delighted to see them, then after their Christmas dinner they turned up again and we spent the whole evening together, it was a wonderful surprise and I really enjoyed their company.

I'm so glad you had an enjoyable Christmas. Both opening presents over the phone, and your visits from your nephews, sound like so much fun!

Oh wow Su this is just soooooo beautiful! I got this one for me last year and got sidetracked on other things and seeing yours inspires me to get mine out! I just love everything about this and yours is prettier than any other photos I have seen of this! It makes me so happy to have something as lovely as this in my stash! So glad you had a nice Christmas! It helps when you have a supportive family and I didn't but am so much better off now after about 20 plus years later. Your stitching is gorgeous!!

Happy new year,
