No Sheila, I never worked in Bristol. I am from outside London originally but retired here in 1997. Perhaps we have met through Needlework Shows or exchanged a few words at Street sometime. I do feel sure that we have met somewhere. Our Embroiderers' Guild meet at Ashcott, near Street. Anyway isn't it great that we meet people from near and far through this website.
Sheila. I just realised how close we live. I am in South Somerset not too far from you. In fact, looking at your photo I wonder if we have met somewhere as you do seem familiar. Do you visit some of the Craft Fairs or do you belong to the Embroiderer's Guild.
Hello Sheila thank you for your lovely comments I enjoyed knitting the scarf it was the first knitting I had done in a long time and I did it in an evening. I have enought thread left to knit another so maybe I knit one for a friend. I love you pictures, I will have to look at your blogg and add it to the one I follow. Happy stitching Sue
Hello Sheila, thank you so much for your kind comments regarding my map collage gifts. I have more information on my blog. I also made a little gift box from it. It was not 'my idea'. So that I'm not being repetitive, I'll point you to my blog for further information. It's fun to do, and I'm already thinking of different ideas for paper and fabric.
I could not help noticing tht you mentioned some exciting textile shops in Bristol on Julia Shahin's page. I will be travelling through Bristol on my down to the Cornish coast soon. Could you be so kind as to give me some post codes so that I may visit them.
kind regards Claire
