Weekend stitching!

I put a few more stitches in Tante Minna. I am really enjoying stitching this one! The picture shows the width of this sampler and the scissors give you some perspective of exactly how tiny it is. The scissors are 'Roo' scissors which were given to me for Christmas last year by a dear friend. Aren't they gorgeous?

I downloaded Part 3 of the French SAL, Guimauve et violette and immediately stitched it up. This is such a pretty little piece and quite different from my usual colour palette.

Last week we went into Canterbury and decided to come home via the 'pretty route'. We came through the small village of Fordwich so I took some pictures of the charming buildings in the village. The above picture above shows the Fordwich Arms, a very popular pub/restaurant. Just check out that unusual chimney. It was a shame that we had already eaten lunch as I hear they do a really good meal here. Maybe we can make a return visit?

The is the Town Hall which is immediately across the road from the Fordwich Arms. Isn't that an amazing building? Click on the picture to enlarge it so you can read what the plaque says.

Nearby is this quaint little house called 'Give Ale Cottage' - quite apt I thought for being next door to a pub!

The other property shown at the top of this picture is just around the corner from the others. I do love these old buildings and I'm so glad I had my camera with me so I could share them. Again this picture is clickable for a closeup view.

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    Love TM! What color(s) are you stitching it with?

    The scissors are really pretty. Nice work on both samplers -- pretty as well. I'm always amazed at the tiny samplers you do. I'd go blind stitching that small!

    Nice scenic route on the the way home. :)

    Lovely stitching update - really like the colours you're using on the French SAL. Great scissors and I love the pictorial tour.

    Lovely stitching. Love both samplers. Also the colors you chose.
    I'm drooling over those Kangaroo scissors since ages. I saw them in person when the producer had a stand in a craft show here in Australia. The 2 colored one is on my wish list.'
