What's up Pussy Cat?


Hands up to all those stitchers out there that have followed Helen and Gail as they trekked alll over Europe showcasing their talent and teaching their skills? They posted regularly on FB so if you've missed it you'll be even more envious, as was I, to learn they visited Tone Finnanger's Studio!!

I'd have squeezed into a suitcase had I have known they'd get to visit the home of Tilda!

But being the lovely friend that Helen is, she thought of me and bought me home a surprise....


...it's in Norwegian but I don't care cause look what is inside!!!....

..it's autographed just for me!

Can you tell I was grinning like a cheshire cat when Helen gave it to me.

Thank-you so much Helen, I'll have to make something from it now.

P.S If you visit Helen and Gail's blogs, you'll find a couple of free patterns to download!
