What an exciting couple of weekends I have had. Last weekend was the Jayne's Attic weekend away in Bedfordshire. It was wonderful! I learned some new stitches:
Met some lovely people:
Amanda and I had a great time.
I was a little nervous about going away with people I didn't know from the internet but I shouldn't have worried. Everything was fine and I would definitely do it again.
This weekend was even more exciting. It is my dh's 40th birthday today and last night I booked us in at the Wizard's Thatch luxury hotel in Alderley Edge. It cost a huge amount just for one night but it was so wonderful. It is a 300 year old cottage that is covered in roses and flowers. Inside it was timber beamed and laid with wooden floors. There was a lot of nostalia inside too. Framed pieces of old newspaper clippings and pages adorned the wall, some from as far back as 1700s. The four poster bed was spread with red and gold sheets and tapestry curtains. Fresh flowers filled the rooms. I didn't want to post all the pics as there are so many but here is a slideshow for those of you who wish to see them all. As you can see of the ones of me, I still need to lose my baby weight :(

And finally, here is my first tin!
Not a fantastic tin topper I admit but a tin topper no less. I tried to put a scissor holder in the top twice but the lid would just not shut down!! So I ripped the top out in the end.
So this is me. I am speeding away on my pif although had a slight dilemma with the ribbon that came with it as there wasn't enough but a massive Thank You to Leena who kindly sent me more so I'll be getting on with that tonight or tomorrow.
Have a good weekend. xx
