Hello friends,
Well what a busy summer , time is moving on so fast .
I have been making item's for the garden and craft show , coming up the end of this month.
I have made a felt bird and knitted rabbit , just stitching it up together , poor rabbit is running around with no head & arms so I had better sort him out today . I also have to sort out what cross stitch to enter.

My sweet peas are very late this year , the ones in my header are from last year , I have just picked 4 from the garden.
I am loving spending time in the garden each day I always go around and de-head the dead flowers makes them bloom again so very important.

I have been home most of this week we just went out one day for lunch and a look around the shops always find a few bits .
I am always looking for things to set my cross stitch on and this week found allot , some boxes and wooden hangers and a magazine to show you how to make a kind of house , so next year look out for a few different items.
The fun will start in the winter.
At the moment I am working on gifts for the end of the year .

So first today here is a lovely heart made by my friend Lily .
Lily is a beautiful stitcher who comes to my cross stitch club .
She makes such beautiful item's .

     And my lady from last week , and the little amount of stitching I did this week , you can blame the headless rabbit.
                                           Last week 

                                                This week

This Victorian Beauty can be found in the Cross Stitch Gold out now.
An the designer is Lesley Teare .


 Another gift from a sweet friend Yvonne.

              Thank you for the wonderful gifts .

                    A few early sweet peas love the colour.
Thank you all once again for all the lovely comments 
I will leave you for now , so you can walk into the garden .
I need to make DH a coffee he is cleaning the conservatory roof and it is a big job , I think he will leave the other side until tomorrow , have a fun weekend hugs June.

Bye for now.
