A Long Weekend and Stitching Update

We had a lovely long weekend here in the UK as Monday was a bank holiday. I am shattered as I was out on the Sunday and Monday performing with Section 5 :)

I have two stitching updates. First my Vervaco bookmark.

I really like how this one is turning out. It is very pretty and looks so much better than the photo on the packaging it came in.

Secondly my Castles in the Air by Papillion Creations.

It's not a brilliant photo so the colours don't show as bright as they should. The part I have stitched since starting again is the green diamond bit. I will take some close ups soon and post them here in my blog.

Every May Bank Holiday at the beginning of May, Hastings celebrates Jack in the Green. The whole town heaves for the weekend.

Getting ready to drum up Croft Road which is a horrendously steep road!

The tall man is my partner Colin.

This one was taken on the Sunday. We are heading off to our annual drum off with other groups.

The drum off at Butlers Gap.

Me, Jackie, Bev and Sam.

In the procession.

I had just the most amazing time. I ache so much today and  my head feels a little delicate. I am not a big drinker and I consumed quite a lot over the last couple of days.  Mainly neat spirits from my friends hip flasks!


  1. Looks like you had a great time. DH and I go to the Ren Faire every year though there are no drummers. :-(
    Enjoyed seeing your stitchy updates!
    Blessings, Donna (ILCS)

  2. Looks like you had a great weekend!

    I love the bookmark, very cute. The Castles in the Air is gorgeous and I can't wait to see more of it!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate each and every one.
