What a wonderful way to be welcomed back to Columbia rd!
Yes as some of you know I have been out of the country traveling for two weeks I visited Brazil ware I took much inspiration from all the amazing colors and most of all the simple wooden houses.
But as soon as I touched down in the Uk again I was straight back to 158 A Columbia rd to meet four keen Makers ready to Embroider Yes I run my Embroidered Story books workshops on Saturday Morning I even made time to bake a fresh Lemon cake for all to enjoy with a nice cup of tea while we stitched and chatted away! So I was joined by Lynn, Hellen,Tatiana and Leigh Yes A Big Thank you to Leigh who took these gorgeous photos for me.
