Sew Lovely . . . . . . . .



My friend Maureen was 70 recently and over the years has made some amazing cross stitch picture so I thought a sewing themed card was just the ticket.   I worked I worked with Maureen for over 10 years until her retirement several years ago. 

I love making sewing themed cards and have made a few recently – in fact we made 2 different sewing themed cards at our March craft class in Long Eaton.




Our Tower Bridge Experience at Easter

On our recent trip to London on the Tuesday before we left Joe and I went on our Tower Bridge Experience before we headed north and home.  Tower Bridge was an iconic structure from my childhood I’d walked over it many times and travelled under it on boats on several occasions.  But never until now had I been in it!!

After our Tower Bridge tour we nipped over the  St Katherine’s Dock where we had a wander about taking in the ambience on a truly warm spring day!! and guess what we spied?  Yes you’ve guessed:
