Yesterday I dug my passport* out and headed over the M62 to meet up with several stitching friends. It was an interesting drive as there where some very strong winds passing over the top of the Pennines but that was more than made up for by seeing the full arc of a rainbow over Halifax.

Pausing only to pick up Rachel and a three week old Henry on the way, we arrived at Pat's house where we were joined by Paula, Lindsay, Kate and Rachele. There was much merriment, conversation and an awful lot of laughter. Some of us even managed to put in a few stitches!

Looks like you had a fun time, Karoline.

Just caught up with what you've been up to, and I just wanted to say your Coffin Buzz is absolutely to die for. Rosie is, as ever, super sweet.
