As the song from Gilmore Girls says “So welcome to my little corner of the world”. It’s all about me and my crafting – focusing around my love for stitching and sewing along with anything else that catches my eye. So welcome, grab a coffee and happy reading.

Mamma Mia

Well last night was a rather soggy one spent on the pitch at Worcestershire Country Cricket ground watching the open air screening of Mamma Mia. I went down with my best mate Sarah armed with waterproofs, picnic blankets and some yummy food.
Sarah (left) and me huddled under a brolly
Fortunatly the rain stayed off for most of the film so Sarah and I sat there with a lovely glass of wine (or two) and some nibbles and had a good laugh. loads of people were up and dancing at the end of the film and walking away speculating what we'd see in the wet next year. Guesses are most welcome. So far they've shown Grease and Dirty Dancing. Sarah and I thought maybe the John Travolta version of Hairspray as it needs to be family friendly and with a good soundtrack.
Our Picnic
And so to Craft, whilst sewing up the height chart earlier in the week,  I made a little decoration for my cloakroom. I did alot of the sewing on the machine and spent an hour this morning finishing them off. Hopefully i'll have a pic soon. As for the stitching I shall be starting a little design for an ATC swap that my fellow blogger Deb is doing to raise money for Fibromyalgia. See her blog here. I can relate to this illness so much as I have M.E. This will be the first ATC that i've made so i'm excited and a little nervous about it too.

Lastly the question...
Day 10: Do you have a favorite pattern or designer?I love Sheila Hudson's floral designs, but really I go for the design more than the designer. Margaret Sherry does some very cute and funny animals, I'm not a big fan of her cats, They are brilliantly drawn but I wouldn't want to stitch them, but then i'm not a cat person at all.

Thanks for reading and have a fab bank holiday weekend folks!
