Tag Tuesday after a busy weekend!

Umbrella


in 
'Up & Down Buttonhole Stitch
The thread is 'Spring Garden' by Chameleon threads

Not a lot of stitches beginning with 'U' so only one stitch to note here and I got a little pen mark on the fabric which is unfortunate, silly me!

Now to start thinking about my 'V' tag now, another difficult one!
Not many letters left.

We left at 5am on Friday morning with our little Monza feeling a little bit sad.
Having met with her new owner at a Service station halfway to make the changeover in Darlington, she headed off down south to Cambridgeshire. The weather was a bit rough over the Pennines especially, it was so windy and our poor little Monza was put through her paces.

On the way back we stopped off at Alnwick as the weather brightened up browsed round the Antique and charity shops. We also visited the the fabulous 'Barter Books' store housed in the old Alnwick train station, what an amazing place! with freshly brewed coffee on offer all the time next to the blazing log fire, the children's book section was a most welcome place for Charlotte and we sat and drank our coffee while she buzzed around on a Wheelie Bug :)

Sunday was my Birthday I began the day with a trip along to the local car boot sale with David there were lots of little bargains to be had and I was tempted by a few well it was my birthday!
 I will take some pics and post tomorrow. 

 I was fortunate to be able to spend the rest of the day with quite a few members of my family who decided to visit, it was a lovely sunny day if a little breezy, everyone enjoyed seeing our new caravan and the boys got together for a game of football in the park next to our house.
Chinese take-away for dinner,  it was delicious and I got some lovely presents and flowers and birthday cake! all a real treat thanks to everyone for making it special :)

How sad to say goodbye to your lovely caravan after all your hard work, but I am certain the new owners will love it. Fantastic that I sold so quickly and now you have a new little home on wheels to enjoy! As always I am in awe of your stitching, so beautiful.

Ahh, **Happy belated Birthday** Yvonne! Wish I'd known *hug*
Sounds like it was celebrated in fine style and no cooking - Bonus! That 'Barter Books' store sounds fabulous. Look forward to seeing pics of your new caravan. :0) Mo xx
