The Fair City of Edinburgh

We had a lovely weekend in beautiful Edinburgh,  visiting my oldest friend for a special birthday party,  to add the the excitement, she and her partner have just got engaged and while we were there grandchild no 1 arrived! Talk about a hat trick! I created this October embroidery to  mark her big birthday, ' S for Sarah'.
