Just a quick post before the duck races!!!!! lol

Hi there bloggers - this is just a very quick post before we go down to let all the ducks race down the river...........

Went to a great workshop yesterday at the Blackmore Vale Embroidery Guild.  It was run by tutor Jan Tillett and was great fun.  We were doing machine embroidered flower borders and this is what I came home with at the end of the day - I did add some hand stitching last night but that's all.

Thanks to the lovely Kate at Downrightcrafty who suggested this would be ideal for the
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge this week so am going to enter it.

Hope you've all had a great weekend.  Will be back during the week with my LIM challenge card and another couple if I have time.
