SUNNY WEEK.

Hello friends,

 How are we all ? enjoying wonderful sunny days I hope.
 Thank you to all who sent me those wonderful comments .
I am still trying to play catch up with your blogs .
This time of the year is always a busy time for us in the garden all the seedlings are almost ready for planting when the Spring flowers fade.

It's been a lovely sunny week here and I did manage to sit for an hour a couple of days inside the summer house it was bliss stitching and watching my little birds playing .

Hello to my new followers hope I get to know you more and take a look at what you are all stitching .
I love to see what others are stitching and the way they finish their work , I can spend a full day looking at stitching designs and when my stitching  mojo is low , I soon get excited again and start looking at my charts and off I go again can't wait to start everyone of them just wish I had a few more hours and could stitch faster ha.

We had a day out today , and look at what I found in a shop it will go in the summer house .
I thought it was so cute , DH and I were looking at the lovely colours in paint,  I think it will be a soft green and cream colour. Will show you when we get started.



I was going to make one , and maybe I will but I fell in love with this one.

 Can't show all my stitching today but here is my WIP .



At last it is starting to grow and branch out love the colours .
                                           Tulip's by Luca-s

Thank you Nathalie so sweet of you , love the magazine and the chocolate sheep are yummy.


Into the garden we go.


I can get all my garden furniture in here but we have different levels so we can move about this is if we want the shade .

Easter Blessings.

Happy Easter to all my dear friends .
Well another crazy week here , it's the time of the year that is very busy for us .
But I did get a day out with a dear friend of mine this week and that was wonderful.

We have had some very strong winds  this week almost felt our roof was coming off one night .
It did do lots of damage to the garden lots of plants blown over and broken big pots and they cost a  small fortune to replace .

We have some of the family coming  over for dinner over Easter so that will be wonderful.

I wanted to spend some time in the garden today but it started to rain so thought I would put a post on instead.

I put some Easter decorations up and and finished one little rabbit stitch . I have done a little more on a few WIPS but will show you those next time.

Thank you again for your lovely comments , and a big hello to my new followers.

Is anyone here watching the new Poldark series , I love it , I use to watch the old one over 30 years
ago ! but love this new one , the new Poldark is very handsome , just my type ha .

Well say no more back to my stitching



This little rabbit I have called Smile she make me smile when I look at her.


The little rabbit was from part of one of  Passion Bonheur charts.


 Dresser is  ready for APRIL.







The one below I stitched a few years ago now.

 This week I had some more lovely gifts.
