Nellie has almost finished.
The second workshop was quite different but still brill. The shop was smaller so less participants. The girl's and I managed to sit around one table with a huge pile of cakes in the middle. Each table had their own stitching tutor which worked out really well. Nellie and I are quite competent so Betty and Belle got her attention. Betty stitched and so did Belle!!! and they loved it. I was so proud and pleased that they had stitched especially Belle as she is a creative girl but not normally in a stitchy way. Quite often she becomes frustrated with sewing but with the patience of Jessica our lovely tutor there she was back stitching, satin stitching and french knots. Nellie said to her in a joking way 'welcome to the family' it was really funny.
In our goodie bag we got the specially transfer printed hankie/scarf, the threads, a hoop and instructions. We also got 15% discount on goods purchased on the night and a raffle ticket.
Belle won the raffle on our night out. She was so busy stitching she was oblivious bless her. We had to shout out. She won a union flag zip purse, soldier badge and crown badge. She was very pleased and we grizzled a bit - in a funny kind way.
I bought the soldier skirt it was the last one in the shop and I will now be twins with Lou as she bought one too.
Betty treated herself too.
We had a really lovely family stitching session and the girl's were very grateful for me taking them to stitch, going out for pizza and generally spending quality time together.
Have a good one.
