Oh my! Its been ages since I wrote anything here. The main site has been taking all my attention.

Anyway I wanted to share a wonderful surprise I was given the other day. My husband had been chatting with a couple over the pub, and had mentioned to them that I do embroidery.Well, they are moving house very soon and wanted to find a new home for a special little box.

When he came home and told me what had been kept in the box for many, many years my face must have lit up like a Christmas tree! Waiting for a week until they met again was like torture.

This is what turned up…


The box contained Marie’s grandmother’s embroidery transfers. Tons of them! Of all sizes, subjects and S’s. My guess is that Marie’s grandmother’s name began with S, or maybe one of her children. Quite handily my mother’s name also begins with S, so she may well get something personalized for Christmas.

Do you want to peep inside the box? OK, as you asked so nicely, here you go….


There is enough in there to keep me busy for years! Of course I will share my results with you either here or on the site…


I will try not to leave it so long before I write next time.
