I have got one other finish but cannot show that yet. July wordplay has been started and this is as far as I have got.
Please excuse the hoop marks but the iron has not been out for the past couple of days.I am really enjoying this one. I know it has an American slant but I like it anyway. American designers do such lovely designs and I just cannot resist. I have seen a few by Country Stitches lately that I like.
I started Courage on Monday with Sally but she has got so much further than I have.I also started a new one in the parlour last week .
This is Cherries and Berries by Country Cottage needleworks, over one so it is very twee. Tonight is parlour night so I shall be stitching on this.
Thankyou so much for your kind comments on Caitlins' Lavender Cushion, she was thrilled with it and said it would rest on her pillow.
On Sunday with it being Fathers Day we went up to Graeme and Sues for lunch. Her parents were there too and we spent a lovely afternoon with them I think Misty enjoyed the attention too.
She was very interested in the water feature Hmmm any fish in there?
A little sunbathing .
She has grown so much.
The roses have started to bloom in the garden and the smell is delicious.
This is a rose called Blue for you, and really is this colour.
This one was moved from the other side of the garden,where it was overgrown with brambles,looks as if it survived. This Physiocarpus is just coming into flower.
The man who cleared our garden last year came and planted more plants on Saturday The bananas we thought we had lost we still have one. He replaced the ones that did not come through the winter.
Well my dears I have taken you through the roses etc so now I think I shall go indoors and make a cuppa. Would you like one.
Love this mug. So we started with tea and ended with tea.See you next time, with a few more stitchy bits hopefully.
Take care and a little note would be wonderful.
