"If you can count the number of projects you have going , you need to begin another, so you have a varied range of complexity from the very simple 'mind-less' ones to those that demand undivided attention." (Laura Early).

Outings (1)

Hubby had last week off work, we hadn't got any holiday plans as such so decided to have some fun days out instead , but , I still haven't posted about an outing from a few weeks ago , so will do that first and then come back to last weeks later . There will be some cute pics though .

 Recently hubby discovered that there was a local military history museum not that far away from us , it's amazing how things can be on your doorstep and yet you still don't know about them .


So , off we went to Thoresby with the intent of looking around The Queens Royal Lancers and Nottinghamshire Yeomanry Museum . We also took along a picnic for afterwards , thinking we could spend some time in the ground of the Hall later .
  Sadly ,we timed it to go when they had an event on , so would have had to spend £4 each to have our picnic in the grounds. Bit of a pain as entrance to the museum is free , so we sat outside the courtyard for lunch instead. We may go back at another point for a walk round the grounds.

 I'm not particularly interested in the military history side , but Hubby and the Boy are , and it made a nice trip out . I did however take quite a few pics of the colours and uniforms , well, fabric and thread have to come into it somewhere , right ?









Sorry for the glare , spotlights and glass don't really mix well .
  The details on these pieces were amazing , just wish I could have gotten closer to some of them , but they were quite high up on the wall .

 Not done much stitching over the summer holidays , in fact I haven't even picked it up over the last couple of weeks . The holidays have flown by though , I can't believe the kids go back to school in a week and a half . I will be back soon with more photos of our outings.
 Thanks for dropping by ,
 Cath

The stitching look brilliant, we have Fort Nelson on our door step, which is free and great fun for our grandsons, loads of guns, tunnels to run around. We also have loads in Portsmouth and Gosport.

Looks a great place to visit Cath, my DH would have loved this. Better make a note of it and ask if he knows about it.
