Secret Stitching 1 Revealed

Leena received the small birthday present I sent to her earlier this week - her birthday isn't until tomorrow, but who would have guessed that Royal Mail would get the parcel there in only one day?? So here is the secret photo - Leena has some lovely photos on her blog as well, so have a look there if you're interested.

And - wonderful news about the tube strike: it's been called off! I would have made it home on time yesterday, if only I didn't have to work late, and if only an earlier train to Reading hadn't broken down, causing half-hour delays in its wake...the joys of commuting. Are there any? Oh yes, I remember why I do it when I walk outside my door and see the big field there :)
And further wonderful news - I think all your hopeful thoughts for our weekend away have borne fruit - not only have I found somewhere coastal and secluded for us this weekend, but I've also found somewhere completely unique: we're staying in a lighthouse for two nights right on the coast in Wales!! I'm SO looking forward to this :) I may not have time for stitching, and I don't think we'll have any internet access, so I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I will post some photos of our lighthouse next week.
Happy stitching and thanks for dropping by!

Simply lovely. Some of you folks are incredibly talented - I'm quite impressed. We're off "camping" (in the motorhome) leaving today at noon. Back on Sunday, as work will return for some on Monday.

Hope your lighthouse is a wonderful adventure (in all the positive ways).
