Hoping you are all keeping safe.

Anther week, and trying times for all of us. I hope you have managed to keep going and keep safe and that the stitching is good therapy.

Over the past few weeks I have been adding new sections of my part series for you to work on and the response has been wonderful. It has been an absolute joy to see all of your pictures. Thank...
