Stitching in the bad weather

 We have just returned from two very relaxing weeks holiday
We used our caravan which we have owned for about six years for the second time
The weather was lousy while we were away I think the only thing we did not get was snow
The wind blew a gale ,rain, hail and one day in the 30s
Any way while relaxing in the van I managed a good bit of stitching
My grand daughter has requested a horse quilt so I have made a start

Just finished

 I have just finished this framed stitchery which will be a gift for a special friend for Christmas
I found the pattern in an old edition of Handmade and it is a Clare Bower design
Next week we are heading off in the caravan for a couple of weeks of R and R
Looking forward to it
Spent a lovely day in the garden today
The weather is much improved

 Bit late in showing what I got up to on Friday night when I joined Cheryll and the girls for a lovely night of sewing
I stitched the binding down on this Charity quilt
Thanks again Cheryll for the motivation
Thank goodness the weather is starting to improve
The winds have been horrific and we have lots of trees down so a big clean up to follow
