I was lucky enough to have the chance to stitch on Lynda's Travelling Pattern - Busy Needle. I got it stitched up over the weekend and loved it. Sassy Brass is the loveliest colour in the entire history of thread. I love it! I have ordered a box from BoxyLady and I will attempt my first ever box finish...eek!
After that was done, I wanted to work on a WIP/UFO. I had a flick through my box. Roots and Wings caught my eye. A few hours later that too was complete, including the little buttons. It's lovely, really bright and colourful.
Some of the clues were in around Bakewell Parish Church which was beautiful. The church was open to look round. Parts of it date back around 1000 years. Inside there was a board that charted the history of the church and detailled when different bits were added to the church. Even the children were interested!
And finally...no visit to Bakewell is complete without a visit to Wye Needlecraft. I was REALLY good and only bought 3 things. One was High Hopes (Just Nan), Honeysuckle Courtyard (Patricia Ann) and Summer Garden (Country Cottage Needlework). The Patricia Ann one is going to be for Colin's parents for their Golden wedding anniversary in a couple of years.
