Cakes, tea and stitching...oh my!

Hi all,

Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine, although where we are in Surrey the weather broke yesterday. It's pretty overcast today but no rain....yet!

Happy Fathers day to all the dads out there. I have sent Michael, his dad and brother out for a game of golf this morning to celebrate. Seeing as I lost my maternal grandfather last month, we are playing it a bit lower than usual with my parents as mum is understandably a bit vulnerable today. However, I'm not neglecting my dad, have planned to take him out to a pudding restaurant in our town during the week while mum is at work. Dad does love his puddings so I can't think of anything better to treat him with!

I'm only new to the WIPocalypse scene so I can't really post a before and after, so here is a picture of where I am up to currently with my Boofle wedding sampler for my friends wedding. I'm really leased that I have got that much done since Tuesday! Can't wait for exams to be over so I can spend my days stitching during July. Going to be heaven...

Don't forget to comment and let me know if you popped by. Have a good day! ~Summer
