Stitching & flowers what could be better.

Hello sweet friends ,
On this sunny day in May . What a wonderful time of the year this is.

Well another busy week for me , I thought I would have so much time when I retired but no life seems to be getting so busy.

I did have time to think about nature this week, I got on to our town country bus to go and meet a friend for coffee , and how wonderful this was  seeing the new leaves on the trees the wild flowers covering the banks and hedges , buttercups , bluebells , white daisy's and many other beautiful wild flowers , watching the little robin and a few other birds playing in the bushes and then a short way around , seeing the sea coming into the estuary with fishermen getting their boats out , and after another bent ,  field upon field of yellow flowers what a beautiful sight , and I thought how lucky and blessed I am for that moment with nature .

Thank you once again for such lovely comments , and a very warm welcome to new followers.
You are so kind and I am so happy to share some of my world with you.

The reason that we are so busy is that my DH is the new town mayor this year . So there will be many duties and events to go to , like this morning .

So I have had very little time to read many blogs the last couple of days but I will be coming around this week to see what you are all up to.

So I dug into my baskets of to do finishes and finished this one this last week.







  Such a sweet stitch .



Printemps Au Jardin by Danybrod.
Stitched on 28ct cream and assortment of threads. 





Stitching and flowers what could be better. 


And my SAL with Angela.



Just made it this week 3 threads per day.
------------------------
And look what my lovely friend Lynda sent me for my Birthday next month .
She sent them early because our posts always seem to take forever .
Lynda said go for it and open so I did and wow how she always spoils me .
Lynda has such a big heart thank you my sweet friend I just love it all .










                                  Thank you so much Lynda , and for your friendship.

                                                 
                                              Yesterdays showers on my tulips.



Walking by this lake this morning ,  how still it is.


Just a couple of household jobs then I am hoping to get an hours stitching in .

Take care everyone , have a happy and fun week.

Ready for May.

 Hello again my friends , another week passed by far to quick  again.
It has been a cool week with the odd days of sunshine .

My hand is still playing me up but at last I think it's on the mend slowly.
I changed the bed cloths today with the help of my DH I was in fits of laughter my DH has never changed the bed covers . Well I have never seen anyone make the bed this way . It took him a few min's to put the duvet on he was almost inside it too.
I had the best laugh for years it was so funny. 
He is learning new things every day .

We have a long weekend so I am going to make the most of it ,  we have a street market in the town Monday so I want to go to that to see if there are any new plants to buy.

I took another item out of my basket of finishes  , and carried on with my SAL I am doing with Angela , just 3 threads per day , and I stitched a Christmas ornament for May. 


                    So first up ,                         Hoppity by Stone and Thread  



I used some Variegated thread on 28 ct .





A pretty rose edging




The sun was very bright so not a good photo.





My SAL is growing after two weeks.


          And my Christmas Stitch ready for May. I made a few changes .
