Our mini break in Hove II

Arundal and Jan

After a good nights sleep and a good breakfast we decided that we would go to Arundal for the morning.  We ventured into the antique shops only, we were too early to do the Art Trail, and we were only going to be in Arundal only for the morning.  We found somewhere for lunch of Bacon, Brie and Cranberry sandwiches, the best we have ever had!

After lunch we drove to Hove, we were meeting a lady who I have emailed and spoken to on the phone for many many years but have never actually met.  I used to cross-stitch for her, (I crossed-stitched many pieces, but this one was my favourite).    We were due to meet her at 2.30 but we arrived early, and because we didn't know the area, we found Tesco and we had two hours free parking, enough time for afternoon tea and a natter, so I rang her to see if it was convenient for her to meet half an hour earlier than planned which was OK.  Where we had planned to meet was full and people didn't look like they were going to move, so we went somewhere else instead.  The lady in question wrote these books. This is the lovely lady, we didn't actually take photos of each other.


  1. A beautiful red and white stitched piece. I have Jan Eatons book of crochet blocks, it was a lovely gift from a crafting friend.
    Wonderful picture with the reflections in the background...very artistic.

  2. Sounds like you had a lovely time :-) dee x

  3. How nice to meet up like that. I'm off to meet my friend in a couple of weeks, haven't seen her in about 2 years although we speak on the phone.
