Halloween stitching in Belgium and goodies from Birmingham

Hi to one and all I can't believe it was March 30th the last time I posted. Things have been so busy and my health hasn't been so good I am on the waiting list for a new left hip.....have to put up with pain until then!!!
I have just had a week in Belgium with the hubby and got a lot done on my Halloween SAL from Gaynor at Stitchers Anon over in Ireland
The day before I went on my hols I visited  the quilt festival in Birmingham with a trip from my local sewing shop and got a few bits and bobs
while in Belgium we visited a beautiful town called Ypres where they have the war graves from WW1 they are beautifully kept. It was a really serene place and makes you think of all those that sacrificed their lives. The entry into Ypres is the Menin Gate where at 8.00pm every evening they remember those that lost their lives and do a bugle call

My last venture at my sewing class done in a day ....well proud of myself!!!
not too good a picture, it's a sewing wallet with 2 side zipped pockets and a clear middle pocket so easy to put together
Well it's getting quite late here and I know I will have an early start tomorrow as my Grand-daughter is staying she will be up at the crack of dawn.
For any of my blogging friends reading this please  if I can get at least 10 comments the first one picked out will receive some goodies as it is so long since I posted.....hope you  haven't all forgotten me!!!! happy stitching xxx Bev
