SAL update and a Mini Adventure

My stitching of the Camille Jullien SAL on 64ct linen with Tudor Silk thread is coming along slowly but surely! Apologies for the poor picture it looked fine onscreen but now looks a little blurry. I will try to get a better picture for the next update!

Last Sunday we had another Mini Adventure. If you remember last May we went to France *here* but this time we stayed local and did the Ham Sandwich run. You may wonder what the Ham Sandwich refers to - it's nothing to do with food but refers to two local places - Ham is a tiny village and Sandwich a town in Kent - see the road sign! We started from the Transport Museum in Dover *here* and drove cross country to finish up at the Viking Ship *here* where we had a Teddy Bear's Picnic. Most people had brought along a bear to join in the fun so there was a competition to find the best bear chosen by Georgia. As Georgia is my grand-daughter, my bear Winston, was not allowed to be in the competition but I am sure he enjoyed the day out and for those who are wondering, he was allowed to travel inside the car and not on the mirror! After an enjoyable lunch part 2 of the rally began which was another cross country route to finish at the Hornby Centre *here*. Part 3 took us again cross country to a final finish at the Griffins Head, Chillenden *here* where there was a BBQ and the prize giving. We didn't win as our mileage was under what it should have been - I guess we took a shortcut at some point ;-)  It was a really fun day and we are already looking forward to the next Mini Adventure!

I'm off to the dentist now - wish me luck!

Thanks for visiting
Take care
