#88 Since When Did A Little Rain Stop Us?!

Good evening everyone, I hope you have all had an enjoyable weekend?

Yesterday was my good friends anniversary celebration BBQ, when I woke in the morning there was blue skies and already the sun was shining away...but, in true British style by the time the celebrations began it was raining and windy, did we let that stop us? No! So there we all were under a gazebo eating our beef burgers, lol! It was a fun night though, and lovely to see everyone, fingers crossed next time the sun will be kind enough to shine.

On to stitching! Again this week I continued work on the wedding sampler, I didn't get too much time to stitch really but there is still definite progress from last week.

Last time it looked like this...

And here it is now! (Please excuse the shadow of my arm across it!)

As of 14-04-13
Not too bad, you can see the start of the bike now :)

I hope you all have a great week ahead!

Happy Stitching!
