A Busy week........

Here we are at the end of another week, and it has been a busy one here in the patch.

Our eldest son graduated from Sheffield University this week.
5 Years of studies and gaining a first class
Masters in Mechanical Engineering.
Congratulations and well done,
we are such proud parents.
No Pressure now on youngest son when he goes off to University in 2013.

On the creative side I have been busy making a gift for my mum.

I did a workshop with the Embroiderers Guild a few weeks ago with the talented Mandy Pattullo 
 entitled "Precious Memories".  It is a collection of recycled fabrics and memorabilia from the 
past together with a photograph printed onto fabric.  It is complimented with hand and machine embroidery. 

I have called it "Mother and Daughter", the photograph is my grandmother as a baby sitting on my
great grandmother's knee.
As my mum is in nursing care now I thought it would be something nice to remind her of the past.

Congratulations to your son. I had a brief trip down to Sheffield this week and saw a lot of graduates getting their photos taken outside The Firth Hall building next to Weston Park.
