Back from my holiday feeling refreshed and recharged :-), had a fantastic time shame couldnt have stayed for longer lol, wasn't allowed to take my stitching with me :( so tried to get as much as i could done before we went and been catching up a little since getting back:



Up close of 'Old Kent Road', 'Community Chest', 'Whitehall' and 'Income Tax':


Up close of 'Kings Cross Station', 'The Angel Islington', 'Chance', 'Euston Road' and 'Pentonville Road':



Up close of 'The Jail'

Bothy Threads - Row of Christmas Fairies



A while back now i wrote to one of the magazines i subscribe to (The World of Cross Stitching) and my story got printed and as a prize they sent me this kit, i started it (well i say started i did a couple of lines lol) then it just kind of got forgotten about, but a group ive joined on Yahoo called Friendly Stitchers has a UFO (Unfinished Objects) Day every Thursday so i thought i'd pick it up again and i must admit im quite enjoying it :) and its a nice distraction from my Monopoly Board.
