Tonight't the night! In our town the new WI (Women's Institute) starts tonight......... And there's high excitment here!
My friend has set this up - and it's a new WI aimed at the 'younger' age group. I imagine tonight we'll just plan what we want to get up to over the next few months, but it will be good to get involved in something new.
Mark has been busy taking the mickey out of me and singing Jerusalem very loudly..... the tune of which I now have stuck in my head (so I am getting very anxious that I will march into the hall humming that tune and sound like a real banana!)
I am aware that some of the content of this post might only really make sense to English readers - not sure if you have the WI in all other countries too? (I'd be interested to know)
Quick photo while I'm here
These cottons were my mother's day present...... when I got up (after my tray in bed of hand made cards and flowers etc) there was a treasure hunt all set out for me to find all these new cottons.... which was great fun for all of us! I have used some of the cotton and as I feared it does have a tendency to snap - but I am sure I will be able to make use of them for hand sewing.
And a sneak preview
Can you guess what these are? More details in due course
OK I'm off to the WI.................................
