August Owl finished and a Day Trip

Hello Everyone and welcome to my new followers.

I have finished my Oakhaven August Owl SAL.  I can't believe that there are only four to go and then it will be finished!!  How time has flown this year.  And here's a picture of what it looks like so far.

Day Trip

I've been to Coventry on a day trip on Saturday.  And as you all know me so well, my camera was at the ready and I took lots of pictures.  Here are just a few of what I took.  The first picture shows old and new parts of the city.  The last two shows picture of Coventry Cathedral, Old and New, Inside and Outside.  At least the weather was kind to us and it did not rain.

PS.  My flowers are looking even better now that the lilies have come out.  And here's a picture for you to see.

Happy Stitching Everyone
