 Hi Friends ,
Well how did we get to November ? I have never known a year go  by so fast and here I am trying to slow things down but how can I .

Well our weather is not to bad , and the past week we have had some lovely summer days and a couple of cold nights , but all in all not a bad week.

My flowers are still blooming they just won't go to sleep .
I cut back some more roses and bushes , and do you know there are bulbs trying to pop up for Spring , our seasons are so mixed up.

Thank you to all who left me a comment I love to read them all , and knowing you still enjoy reading my blog , bless you.

Ok lets show you this weeks stitching .

                          Tralala les amis du pere Noel
                   Stitched on Jobelan 28ct called Bone.
Now which material will I use for the finish ? I like to ponder for a few days and keep looking until in my mind I say yes that's the one.
Last year I stitched this one but never did finish it but now I have.

The designer is Maryse .
It is part of a bigger chart but I wanted to stitch this one into a ornament.

I do love this little Autumn plate.

So cute.
In the garden.

Have a good week my friends .


  1. Oh that darling mouse! And you know I love that pink stitching. :D I love the pansy in your garden. Thank you for showing that. My favorite flower. There are planters of them down here on Main Street. I am glad!!

  2. Lovely little mouse June and I love that plate too. I'm such a fan of Brambly Hedge.

  3. Your garden is never ending with blooms most of the year. I also love the mouse and the sleigh. I so love all your stitching. big hugs

  4. Aah what a sweet little mouse. Both fabrics are lovely but I think I like the one on the top left. It seems perfect for that stitch. The sleigh stitch is beautiful. Love the white pom pom and the colors of that stitch. As always you have the prettiest flowers to show us. Have a great week. RJ@stitchingfriendsforever

  5. Lovely Tralala little crosses. I think the fabric on the top right would be ideal for your finish.
    The sleigh finish looks pretty too. You have been busy and creative :) I have just found wild pansies in my garden and actually thought of you! You are right, the flowers are confused with the seasons.

  6. June- your stitching is so delicate and pretty. I love both your little ornaments, but the sleigh is my favorite. You really created a gem there. One can almost feel the snow!
    Thank you for another lovely walk in the garden :)

  7. Oh June what a lovely Christmas mouse, can´t wait to see the finish.
    Oh yes - the finish at your little cushion with the sleigh is perfekt. You are so creative.
    Thanks for your flower-Pictures.
    Have a nice sunday - Martina

  8. Hello June,
    the little mouse is very cute.
    I like your little sleight looks wonderful.
    Have a nice weekend.
    Hugs, Manuela

  9. Love the colours of your sled stitching :-) I planted a bulb lasagne and have shoots already I didn't think I'd have anything to show for ages xx

  10. Nice cross stitiches :-)) and you make lovely assembly everytime. The Autumn plate is soooo sweet and your flowers beautiful even if we are at the beginning of November.

  11. I love that little mouse. I think either fabric will complement it. That sleigh ornament is so pretty as are all of your beautiful flowers. Ours are blooming still also. There are buds on my geraniums even. What a pretty Autumn plate also.

  12. The Autumn plate is so lovely. Beautiful crosstitches, love the sleigh and look forward to seeing the final finish of the Christmas mouse.Our Spring here has been long, cool, wet, get the odd "summery" day as a tease then it all goes to custard. I must say though the gardens are pretty with all the lovely flowers as yours is still.

  13. I love your three autumn pieces in your header. Such a lovely deco, wonderful colours. Great autumn plate, too. This would be a great design to stitch.
    Your Christmas stitching and finishing has started. Great new Tralala design that you finished. And the piece by Maryse is so beautifully finished.
    So nice to see that you still have flowers in your garden. Nothing like that in our garden now, all the flowers have disappeared, even the asters. Those frosty nights lately were just too cold for them.

  14. Ta bannière est superbe !
    Sweet kisses my friend

  15. Pretty finishes, love them both.
    What a pretty Fall plate to display.
    As always, your flowers are beautiful.
    Have a great week!

  16. Great finishes. Love the sleigh pillow, the colours are just so pretty, pink and grey are such a lovely colour combination. It really look icy.
    Have a good week.

  17. The mouse is just darling, I love the plaid on the lower right! Looking forward to seeing what you pick for the stitch. Love, the pink accents on the sleigh!! Such a pretty stitch and I have taken a small part of a pattern and made an ornament too. It's fun to adapt patterns. Your flowers are gorgeous and this has been the fastest year ever but I bet we say the same next year!! Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Mary

  18. Hello my friend, Your stitching is perfect as usual.The little mouse is really cute and the sleigh so pretty. We have a bright sunny day here today so off out with Effie later. The garden here is still in all its greenery but as you say the roses do not want to stop. Take care and have a good week.

  19. Such a gorgeous ornament - I can see why you liked the pattern. Your garden looks lovely - and I agree that this year is going very fast! x

  20. your stitched cushions for autumn are marvellous! with all those browns, and oranges, and pale greens...marvellous! and I love the flowers in your garden. In Italy the weather is still warm and today on my balcony I found my FIRST sweet peas!!! I have to thank YOU for this because I had seen them on your blog many times and I wanted to have them so I bought the seeds in Holland this summer.. and now I have my sweet peas!!! Thank you. love. titty

  21. Sweet little Christmas mousie.
    The little pompom trim is so perfect for the sleigh pillow.

  22. The header is so pretty. Love all of your fall pieces. I know, how is it November. Your flowers look great.

  23. June: Again you give us beautiful floral photos, thank-you for sharing with us,
    I love your pom poms on the sleigh ornament so sweet, I have stitched the Tra La La design it is a sweet pattern, I am not sure which fabric you should use they are all lovely.


  24. I absolutely love the grey and pink of the Maryse piece.Two lovely finishes and gorgeous flowers❤️

  25. che bello ricamare gli ornamenti di Natale, sono meravigliosi

  26. Aww... your little mouse is adorable, June! And I do love the sleigh--pink and gray have always been one of my favorite color combinations.

    I know--I can hardly believe we are through the first week of November. I have never, ever had such a busy year and I can only hope that 2018 will slow down for me! Hope yours does, too!

  27. Все вышитые дизайны мне очень понравились! И фотографии прекрасные! Я очень люблю ваш блог и ваше творчество! желаю удачи!

  28. Oh June, I love your latest finishings. Especially the sleigh is adorable! That colors and the finish - all so perfect together!
    Thanks for showing!
    I hope you are fine and don't have to much stress!


  29. I love how you finished that gorgeous sled design, it's so pretty! Reading the comments it seems everyone has a different choice for the sweet mouse's fabric so it shows you really can't go wrong with any of them. Hope you find time to finish it before Chrustmas.

  30. I think this is one of the most significant information for me.
    And i’m glad reading your article.
    But should remark on some general things, the web site style is perfect,
    the articles is really great : D. Good job…

  31. Your finishes look wonderful, I love the sleigh design :)
