Hello everyone

Just popping in to say hello and introduce myself.  I'm Sue and I live in Derbyshire with DH and our three cats, we've been married for 35 years today, all of them lovely. We've three daughters, four grandchildren and another due on September 10th.

Other than cross stitch I love my garden, like to read, knit, bake and I sometimes have a dabble at making cards.

Looking forward to getting to know you all, it's amazing that there are still blogs out there that I've not found before which is a nice surprise as I love to see what other stitchers are sewing.

Best wishes,

Sue x

Temporary Address Change/Group Changes Too!

Hi RAK Members!

Just wanted to let you all know that I am having to get all of my mail re-directed once again due to construction issues at my building.  I'll be sending out a new Member List later on tonight with my temporary address.  If you want to mail out any RAK's to me for the remainder of this year can you please use the temporary address.  Sorry for any confusion :)

I've made a few changes to the group.  I will continue to be hosting this blog and any future requests to join should still be sent to me (Angela) at apxstitch at gmail dot com.  It is no longer a requirement to send out the one RAK in the first year of joining this blog.  It's too confusing to keep track of it and it defeats the purpose of this blog which is to share kindness with others as you choose to.

If you have any questions please let me know.

RAK received!

Thank you so much Carolyn: your wonderful RAK arrived yesterday.   I love it.  It was perfect timing as I was as low as I could be waiting for my hospital appointment.

Thank you so much.

RE the hospital: it went well.  My surgeon came to see me even though he was meant to be on annual leave and I have had all sorts of tests done and will get the results next week.  He is an amazing Dr and I am really lucky to have him.

So all is well (or better than it was).

Carolyn sent me my three favourite things.  Tinkerbell and Daisies and the Sea!

A Tinkerball folder, a Tinkerbell Notebook, Tinkerbell tissue paper, Country Cottage Needleworks Surfside Cottage charts, which has the sea and the daisies on it,  the linen and the threads needed to stitch it.

It is all perfect.  Thank you so much Carolyn xxxxxxxxxx  It really did make a difference to my day xxxxxx
