Some of you asked me earlier on in the week what I was up to with my sewing machine, well here it is.
As an Ambassador for the Royal British Legion I am always on the look out for ways to raise much needed funds the Royal British Legion in particular 'Combat Stress'.
So whilst I am not stuck behind a viewfinder I am letting my creative madness tun riot, this is a latest order which will be posted off to Derbyshire just in time for Christmas.

Well so now you know.

A huge thank you to you all for you very kind comments and messages following yesterdays upload, an a special mention goes to Eric (Gypsyman) for his UA.

I sincerely hope that you all have a great Silly Sunday, for me I think I shall take the wife and camera for a walk.

Highest regards Nathan

Love the colour's in this carefully Crafted Trio Nathan, and the Sacking type BG makes a perfect back drop for them. Smashing and amusing shot.
