Hello friends ,
We had such a wonderful weekend  , so busy and when we were home we spent in the summer house relaxing ,the weather was just beautiful.
I have been watching all the birds playing and singing and feeding their little ones , I saw the humming bird moth for the first time this year , and so many butterflies in the garden.
Nature is such a wonderful gift .
So not too much stitching this week but I did stitch a little bit.

I did finish this one from last week of one of Dany's designs .

My Lilly of the Vally are now in flower.

I also worked on Vera Mouse this week.

We put another hanging basket up on the summer house.

Beautiful poppy

Still a few daffodil's around

I still can't get over we are already well into May time is going faster than ever .
Tonight  will be watching the TV  and a little stitching and knitting which I can't show just yet you will have to wait until after our garden and craft show.
Thank you all for your lovely comments from last time .
I do love to hear from you all, have a good weekend 


  1. Your stitching as always is lovely. I do so love your garden, I have gotten lots of different bulbs and seed packets of flowers to put in my garden. We moved my peonies yesterday to the front of the house in the new flower garden and it did not hurt them any. they are just starting to grow. I am trying to do alittle at a time with my bad back. Do some one day and rest the next and repeat. We are just starting to get some warm weather. Hope you have a great weekend. hugs

  2. Lovely little finish and wonderful progress.
    I like the flower photos from your garden.
    Have a nice weekend.
    Hugs, Manuela

  11. I missed you June! But you are back with your nice cross stitch and wonderful flowers from the garden.

  12. Such pretty stitching and finishing - been making the most of the good weather and spending time in the garden bought some plants today for the back border that we cleared last year so I can go for a cottage garden effect - fingers crossed they grow :-) enjoy the rest of the weekend xx

  13. Your garden looks beautiful as always June! I love your summer house with the bunting and hanging basket - so pretty.
    Dany designs such lovely flowers and your new finish is perfect.

  15. I love the idea of your summer house - it must be a lovely place to sit and relax and enjoy nature.

  16. Such pretty flowers and cross stitch. I've not done cross stitch in a long time, but do enjoy seeing it. Saw you on a friends blog and thought I'd pop in for a visit. Always nice to meet new bloggers.

  17. I like the pretty subtle colours you have used on the lily of the valley piece, and the gorgeous garden flower photos.

  18. What a beautiful finish, June--so soft and pretty! And your Vera the Mouse piece is growing nicely. I'm glad you've been able to sit outside in your little summer house--it sounds delightful! Things are warming up here, too, but are still a bit on the chilly side. Hope you enjoy a lovely and relaxing weekend!
