Tomorrow we are off to the Lakes for a week, the weather forecast seems to be rain and cold nights so if you can send some sun our way as we're camping :)

Of course one of the most important things about camping is making sure everything is packed (remind me to tell you about the time we managed to leave the tent pegs behind). I have no idea how much time I will have for stitching but let me tell you I'm going well prepared.I have this little tub which doesn't take up much room.
but now it's packed to the gills with 12 postcard tops waiting for some hand stitched embellishment, plenty of threads
My little UFO cross stitch that I told you about a couple of weeks ago
this cute little embroidery design (I'll find the blog link for you when I get back)and there are a few more surprises besides.
I've also stocked up with a few new magazines
and this great book that I picked up the other day.
It will be interesting to see just how much (or little) of this I will have done when I get back.
Hope you have a lovely week, I'll look forward to catching up on my blog reading when I get back. Before I sign off I thought I'd share this picture of Hector sitting on top of the cupboard door, he used to do this when he was little seems like he's having a second kittenhood!

See you in a week!

I hope you have a wonderful vacation and I wish you warmth and sunshine for your week up at the lake.

Wow, Hector certainly is the climber. He reminds me of my late cat Abaroo, she was an Abysinian who loved to climb to the top of anything and everything.

Have a great holiday and we'll see you on the blog in a week.

Love your holiday kit and hope your hands dont get too cold to use it! Stay warm and dry, and have a lovely time. At least the scenery will be spectacular even if the weather let's you down.
