A lot about nothing in particular ....

Since finishing my endangered species cards I haven't had much time for stitching, but since I know it's all too easy to get out of the blogging habit I thought I'd post anyway. I want to say a huge thank you to all who left such lovely comments on my previous post, it was wonderful to have so much encouragement in connection with a project that meant a lot to me.

Last night I officially became a member of the Swindon and North Wilts Embroidery Guild, another lovely bunch of stitcher ladies! I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone over the coming meetings. I've signed up to do a day workshop with them in November which I'm looking forward to.

Speaking of workshops I've had two cancelled on me these last couple of weeks grrr, both were being put on by the same organisation and had to be cancelled due to lack of numbers. It's such a shame as I was really looking forward to both, one was Creative Knits and the other was a felting workshop. Nevermind in a couple of days I'm off to take my Janet Bolton fabric collage class so that should be great! As I don't like to blog without pictures I thought I would share a couple of pics of a beautiful bouquet I had from my work friends last Friday. I think I mentioned a while back that I had a promotion a work, it's hard to explain but at the time it was a part time promotion and last week that became a full time promotion, sadly it meant moving to another team. Even though I've only moved a few desk rows down my old team gave me a wonderful card, some flowers and gifts to celebrate my new job, they are so sweet. I don't always like my job but thankfully i work with some lovely people which sometimes makes all the difference when you are having a bad day! Before I go, if you are feeling Autumnal I just have to say you must visit Mark's blog (link in the side bar) as at the weekend he went out with his camera and took some lovely pictures of all kinds of fungi which were sprouting in Savernake Woods.

Lucky you - not just for the flowers, but the Janet Bolton class. Have always admired her work.
Marks photos are fabulous - but then they always are.
