Hello friends well I am back now after a few weeks away , had a wonderful holiday and a good rest .
Sunshine every day and my batteries are charged ready for getting back to my stitching .
I did take a little stitching with me but only a few stitches were made .

I love to go away but it is always nice to come home.

Can't believe my garden is still in full flower , so after some washing I was outside putting in some spring bulbs.

We went shopping and they have so much Christmas things out in the shops feels funny coming back from the sunshine to find Christmas is on the door step .

But first it is Halloween I am working on two designs at the moment so will show you soon .

But first I joined in Mii's mail art exchange and here is what I stitched for Lynda.

         The little girl I found in an old mag a friend sent me ages ago.

                 And the rest  I made up , and a few odds were taken from other charts.

And I added a few extras 

   I  know Lynda loves collecting stones and I found this one I thought it was so cute.

 And when I got home look what I found a lovely mail art from Lily in Malaysia

Thank you so much Lilly I love it and all the goodies .
Love the key holder too.

Also a big thank you to Mii, for running the exchange.

 Here are a few of my holiday photos and instead of flowers from my garden I send you some from my holiday .

Thank you all for your sweet comments , have a good weekend I will be back with a little more stitching and more photo's

  28. Oh, June, the photos from your vacation look spectacular--I'm so glad you and Ron were able to get away and relax together :)

    Love the mailart that you created--that has always fascinated me! I would be afraid that mine would get eaten by the postal machines!! Hope your garden continues to bloom a bit longer--at least you'll have some glorious spring flowers to look forward to since you planted so many bulbs!
