Stitching to show

Life has been busy. Ive been down in London, been busy with work, running a lot in preparation for the 10K, running youth club etc etc Oh and my good friend Sherri had a 10lb10 baby boy!!! Congratulations Sher if you read this, not sure if you read my blog or not! He is adorable!

I love the lighter nights now too. It's not getting dark here until about 9pm at the moment. It's great for getting more stuff done! Not much free time to blog or read blogs but im getting there!

I have been stitching as and when time allows. I finished my first square for the Quilts for breast cancer group This is a design that was in the Gift of Stitching online magazine in September 2007.
and i also finished page 1 of the EMS rose sampler
This is such a pretty piece. I really enjoy working on it!

Thanks so much to those that contacted me about sponsoring me in the 10K. I really appreciate your support. Both of the charities im running for are cying out for donations - The Haven having recently lost local council funding and Footsteps because of all the unrest in Kenya at the moment. You can visit my website www.justgiving.com/cherylthomas

Tonight i am in a charity fashion show to raise money for The Haven! Got 6 outfit changes which is always a bit stressful! Should be fun though.
