Hello friends ,
What a lovely week we had, can't get over how hot it has been the last few days , it makes you feel so good that bit of sunshine.
Well here we have been busy , never much time to do all the things I would love to do, but I do try to take a few hours from the chores for myself and family .
I have been doing more in the garden this week with the weather being so good. 
So just a little sewing to show this week , and some beautiful gifts sent to me and the garden that is going mad with blooms .
Our tomatoes and veg are all growing away too.
So lets start with a bit of sewing first .
I stitched one more little girl on my SAL and here is one from my finish to do box that I am back stitching before I make it up , most of you have seen it before.
I am trying to back stitch all the squares then I will make into a little pillow.

If you look close you can see my thread so a few more to do then it can be put together.

My SAL I  need to start miss April next .

 And this last week I recived some lovely gifts I still say I am so blessed with wonderful friends.

What a wonderful Easter package every thing is just wonderful the chocolates are so good Hubby keeps asking for more .

Thank you Titty for the lovely goodies  every thing is on display right now around the house.

Beautiful little rabbit is hanging on my inside tree , I love rabbits .

Your little top is under my flowers.
