Saturday wash out.

 Hello dear friends ,
Today is a wash out , it's cold and raining so I am resting and maybe watch some TV this afternoon while stitching .
There's lots of sport today that's if you like sport , I must say I love most sports .
I have spent most of the week sorting upstairs and getting rid of loads of junk where does it all come from ?
So I can sit with an inner peace that my work for this week is done until Monday.
I will start today's post with a little stitch I stitched for our friend Ann who needed a hug , and I could not reach Scotland so I sent her a little something to brighten her day.

             Winter pansy from CS Collection 2006 
                       28 ct white sparkle evenweave and dmc threads , and the material you see is the backing.

    I was feeling a little under the weather this past week and yesterday I received a lovely HAPPY package of our sweet friend Lynda who is a stitching sister of mine .
My Sis brought me the four season charts well that cheered me up no end I love new stash so I have already started to get the threads together for the first chart of Spring.
Thank you so much my dear stitching Sis .
Valentines day this week so I thought I would show you some of my past stitching .
              Happy Valentines day friends for this week.

                    2015 ! where did those years go .

And a red rose for all my friends to wish you a happy 
                               Valentine's .

Just a quick run into the garden this week.
This is what I found.

Have a great week and thank you once again for your lovely comments . Well what do you know the sun is trying to come out !

  11. Your garden flowers are looking so pretty June, it reminds us all that Spring is just around the corner. It's a good feeling to get things tidied up.
    Thank you again for the lovely gift - a special something to keep.

  12. Such a lovely post, amazing flowers in your garden already. The pink camellia is beautiful. Love all your Valentines stitcheries. They will look so pretty in an arrangement on your shelf.Loved the crosstitch charts you received they will be lovely to do . Hope you have a good week.Our heatwave broke thank goodness few days ago, it was pretty bad heat wise. Now we are having rain, with warm temperatures which gives humidity++. It is jolly hard not to complain about it. I am ready to ship out and experience a bit of snow I think.Hugs to you June.

  13. What a pretty gift for Ann! And lovely Valentine's stitches! Your beautiful flowers are a very welcome sight -- thoughts of my garden is what is getting me through this winter. I'm beginning to feel a little desperate. : )

  14. Hi June,
    that's a really nice little motive, I really like the pansy.
    And the season charts look interesting. And you have already embroidered such magical Valentine's motifs - wonderful to look at.
    I wish you a beautiful Sunday
    Hugs Martina

  15. This little pansy is very beautiful and so are all the flowers in your garden. It's very kind of you to share these beautiful colours with us especially on rainy days like today. Lovely creations for Valentine's Day.
    Have a nice Sunday.

  16. Hi June, I'm your newest follower and had to tell you how much I love your stitching inspiration! Wow, what a great stitching sister to gift you those lovely charts! I wish spring would arrive here in New Hampshire USA, we still have too much snow on the ground although it has been warmer since yesterday (Sat) and raining so hopefully the snow won't be around too much longer! I'm just coming back to stitching after a too many year hiatus while I explored learning to spin my own yarn and to weave. I would love it if you could pop over to my new blog to say hello sometime... for now, hugs from rainy New Hampshire across the pond...

  17. I think we have had 4 seasons in one day here today. A wonderful gift for Ann, I am sure it brightened her day. Lovely charts from Lynda. Beautiful Valentines stitching, I can see you will have a lovely display.
