I have now finished stitching my SAL Giumauve et Violette. I'm not sure what I will put in the space above the garland in the centre - the designer suggested a charm and I think I have a Fleur de Lys charm somewhere in my stash which might suffice. I'm not sure of a 'final' finish!
Last week we took a trip to Canterbury and I took a few snaps. These show a marked difference between the old and new buildings in the city centre. The 'older building' is, of course, Canterbury Cathedral.
We also popped into a shop for a bottle of water and noticed this lovely display of 'old fashioned' sweets (candies) - check out those sugar mice - how I loved these as a child. I resisted buying any as I am not sure I am up for a pure sugar hit!
We then drove to Westwood Cross in Broadstairs as I wanted to go to Hobby Craft and after a quick lunch at Frankie and Bennys we decided to go see the new Jason Statham movie - Killer Elite. As you can see from the above picture DH arranged a private showing! Not really but we did get the cinema to ourselves and the movie was great.
On the way home we stopped so I could get a picture of the Viking Ship at Pegwell Bay. This ship has been there for as long as I can remember. Isn't it wonderful?
This year there seems to be a vast amount of spiders webs in my garden with the most enormous spiders. I keep well away and used the zoom on my camera to get a couple of pictures!
I'm sorry for the mish-mash post today but I have been holding these pictures on my desktop and have at last found time to post. All the pictures are clickable for closeup views.
Thanks for visiting
