Off to Dorset

Its May bank holiday weekend and 8 of us girlies are off to Dorset on the South Coast of England for a long weekend. We go every year and it's great fun. This is what we stay in (picture of 2 of my friends from last year). My sister and i fly down to East Midlands airport tonight, stay overnight with a friend and then the 3 of us drive the rest of the way tomorrow, about a 4 hour drive. We're booked into a Spa on Sunday which will be nice. Hoping to hire boats another day (weather permitting of course) and we go out every night. Fun! Speaking of fun...you'll never guess what i started last night? Tap dancing lessons!! LOL. Havent been tap dancing since i was about 5! I went with my friend and her mum and it was great! Wasn't sure if i would enjoy it or have enough rhythm but it was fine! Will definitely go back next week.

Been another busy week with little stitching but here's some slight progress on EMS Rose Sampler. I find this one hard to put down!
Have a good weekend!

Tap dancing, wonderful!!! I've ALWAYS wanted to start tap dancing, but I haven't found any place here where I could learn. I know there used to be a dance school where you could learn tap dancing, but they don't have it in their program anymore... Good luck and enjoy :)

Have a happy weekend, it sounds like fun!

Happy stitching

As I type this you are probably not that far away from me as Im quite near EMA. Hope you have a wonderful week in Dorset.

EMS is lovely to stitch part 5 was out this morning and I am itching to get it started.

Tap dancing...fun! I took tap for several years when I was younger and I really liked it. I haven't taken any formal lessons since, but I do still tap around the kitchen (the only hard floor in the house) sometimes, trying to remember steps. My recent "discovery" of musicals from the 40's and 50's has gotten my interest back up as well. I would love to take lessons...but I don't think anyone needs to see me in a leotard anymore...LOL!

Oooh, how great to have a girls weekend away! I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Tap dancing lessons are supposed to be excellent excercise, how fun.

That sounds like soo much fun Enjoy!
BTW I found an old PS pattern called St. Nicholas from 1988 and remembered that you liked Santas and PS. If you do not have this pattern and would like it please email me at drewsgrands@hotmail.com and I will send it off to you.

Have a great time! I have had a recent opportunity to do tap as well but I have not signed up cos of the kids :( Maybe it'll come around again for me. For now though - I'm just too tired.

Your weekend sounds wonderful. I hope you have a fantastic time and that the weather cooperates and is beautiful for you.

Your Rose sampler is looking so pretty. There seem to be several single color designs popular at the moment. I'm doing one much smaller than yours, Schoolgirl Lessons by LHN, but I'm totally loving not having to change floss colors all the time, makes for a very relaxing stitch.
