And the winner is ...

Just Nan's Floral Fifteen. This will be tomorrow's new start. A big thank you to everyone who voted. Scream House came second so that will be my next big Just Nan project after this one, but there may be a few smaller ones in between.

Last week was half term week. We went 'down south' to visit The Other Half's family and to be in London for the Steam Special to York. By the way I did get a full refund. So, instead of going to York, we spent Thursday in London. I hit the shops on Oxford Street and managed, quite successfully, not to buy anything. On Friday we visited Brighton for the day. Here we went on the Volk's Electric Railway, the oldest working electric railway in the world.

On Saturday we made our annual family visit to The Derby at Epsom. This is a picture of the eventual winner, Workforce, on his way down to the start.

Here is The Queen standing on the balcony of the Royal Box.

OK so spot The Queen. She is in the middle of two gentlemen, there are only three of them on her balcony.

For my holiday stitching I started something new. Called Little little village 1 and Little little village 2 these are from a series called Maggi Co's Village by Jardin Privé I used the free chart, available in the website, to join the two charts together. If you have not visited this site then pop over and have a look there is some really nice stuff on there. I have all ready eyed up my next purchase! This is what it looks like so far.

Another design in the Maggi Co's Village range is being done as a SAL here. This is the design. Start date is 14 June.

The artist is Raquel Blasco. Her blog is here.

Happy stitching

Well at least you know what you'll be stitching soon. Thanks for links to your new 'finds'. Hope you backed 'the Winner' or at least someone did!!

Shame about the shopping. I can look for ever and never buy. It's quite a skill.

Happy stitching to you.
