Friday 4th July 2014.... Friday with Friends...

To all my lovey American friends and far away friends Happy 4 th July :-)  Hope your day is wonderful.

This evening I was lucky enough to stitch (virtually) with other amazing people all over the world.. see I took part in Friday With Friends... 

Its all organised by Cheryll at Gone Stitchin ...

I love looking around every ones blog to see what they have all been up to... love it!  

Guess you all want to see what I have been up to then?  Busy busy busy!!  Do you know I had planned to stitch my 'Happy' design .. but I was drawn to stitching this... I managed it all this evening!  Good going I thought.... Although on the design I was supposed to stitch more... but left it off, I like it the way I left it...

The design is called Welcome October and its designed by With Needle & Thread... it was a freebie design from 2009... here is the link if you would like it too..  HERE.  

I just have to decide what to do with it now.. 

I loved stitching it with The Friday Night With Friends :)

I have to get my thinking cap on... I think I know why I did this... you see I have on my mind that I need to stitch something 'autumny' for my next Round Robin partner... lol just seen what I typed! ha ha ha autumny!! ha ha is that actually a word?! I like it!! 

I want to say how much I love blogging and just love all the people that have taken time to look at  my blog and comment... I feel for once that I belong somewhere.. and that somewhere is here in this wonderful stitching community.  I would never of thought that so many lovely people would of just dropped in and said such nice things.. about what I get up to and what I make...

Thank You... all of you.. I really do appreciate that you take time to drop in :-) 

Smiles to you all :) xx
