Lovely sewing day

Yesterday I had a lovely time with the Leamington Spa Embroiderers Guild.  The idea was that we would develop our hand embroidery skills by picking a card with 3 stitches listed on.  My first three were Thorn stitch, Van Dyke stitch and Basque knot.  My head really hurt by the end of the day, but it's a really good idea and make you look at things differently.  It's also good to try the stitches with different threads.  I really enjoyed spending time with such a lovely group of ladies.
We all bring a dish along for a faith lunch.  I made Summer Vegetable Couscous.  It was yummy - and healthy too.

It's a beautiful day today. It's not raining YAY. I took a photo of the poppies.  Although they're flowering nicely, you can see the relentless rain has battered them.
Now DH has a bit of an issue with one of our garden visitors.
He's rather persistent and loud!  He doesn't seem to get a sore throat or tired!
So - enjoy the day and I'll post again soon.
