Well hello to all my friends ,
on the second week in April , we have had a few nice days this week so yes I have been outside working in the garden. It's getting very busy out there , with bees buzzing and birds singing and each day something else pops open .
The bluebells will be out soon and forget-me -nots also the Lily of the Vally. I really love Spring .

But today is dull damp and cold so I think I will watch the sport and stitch today , unless it gets better.
I have a new finish to show you and a some gifts from friends.
But first I would like to say a big THANK YOU for your kind comments from the bottom of my heart from my last post.
So here we go . I have so many stitched item's but sometimes I don't seem to have the time to finish them , so this is all going to change and I need to dig in to my basket . 

       This is one of Dany's charts with just a few changes .

                                       I stitched it on 28ct linen cream
                                   and a mix of different threads .

                The fabric at the front is the same as the back .

My friend Ann gave me this lovely Easter gift after club

Lovely garden mugs for Hubby and myself and some beautiful daffodils , thank you Ann they will be well used this year .  
           And from Nathalie another lovely gift thank you so much.
                   Hoping you had a lovely birthday .

Lovely cross stitch and magazine and Easter serviettes 
and beautiful card.
 My friend Margaret stitched me a sweet card .

Thank you , I am so blessed with the amount of  lovely friends I have , through out the year they send me such sweet gifts . Thank you to you all for your kindness you know who you are  Bless You.

The sun is coming out so maybe we can get out side and empty the Summer house of the garden furniture.
We will wait and see if it is going to stay out.


This is the straw liners the birds a taking for their nest building .

Look at your daffodils now Ann they are just beautiful and so large .
Wishing you all a great week with lots of stitching.


  1. Well June, once again your weather makes me envious. On Wednesday we had around three inches of snow fall in a few hours and it froze overnight so didn't disappear quickly!

  2. That is a gorgeous summer crds stitch design. Finishing is my least favourite part but if I can get them finished in a couple of weeks I consider it okay. x
