A Finish and a Week-End Away

Hi Everyone and Welcome to my new followers.  Time has flown and last Week-End I was away in London.  But first I want to share with you my finished piece called "Wish Upon A Star" by Andree Langhorn.  I received the kit from Mary Grace as a Christmas present.  It came from Cross Stitcher, from the December 2007 issue.  I stitched this while I was away in London and finished it off when I got back.  The kit had plenty of threads/floss, so I might stitch it again.

"Wish Upon A Star" by Andree Langhorn.

We went down on Friday and arrived in the afternoon.  The sun came out and we had blue sky with a few clouds.  At our hotel we were fortunate to have a room with a view of the Thames and Tower Bridge.  So we set out and explored our surroundings, taking lots of photo's as we went along.  Unfortunately, Saturday and Sunday were a bit of a wash out, as the rain came down, but we made the best of it by visiting the V&A and the British Museum.  We noticed quite a change in the temperature as  London was 14 degrees and when we got but home it was 5 degrees or though it felt like 0 degrees as it was so cold.  Winter has returned!!  It makes me wonder if we will ever get some nice hot sunny weather this year!!

As usual I want to share some of the photo's I've taken.  I'm going to try a new Photo Collage Maker and hope it will work.  Here's a link if you like it

Until Next time, Happy Stitching Everyone
