I just wanted to tell you about a stitchy friendship I have. I met my friend, Nicola (right), when our eldest children became friends in pre-school. We have so much in common and both love to stitch. Since our youngest children have started school, we regularly get together for craft days. Sarah Taylor, Isle of Wight Alison says: That’s lovely, Sarah. Bonding over cross stitch is one of my favourite ways to connect with people!
