Hello to all my friends far and near ,
 Hope you are enjoying a lovely early Summer or early Autumn in other parts of the world.
We have had a very busy month so I have not had the time I like to spend on my PC, with all the things we like to do in the summer months . We have also been busy in the garden planting and weeding also going out and about.
We do live a very busy life , so some times we do like the odd hour in the gardening and sewing it is the perfect way for me to relax .
But this week not to much of this
So I do apologise to some of my friends I may be a little late with my letters  please forgive me you know who you are. I will be catching up this week.
Well my PC has been off for a few days , and now I have lost my bloggers I follow and all my extra bits , so  I will have to find them later , oh PCs are so much fun I almost put it in the dustbin today .
I lost my pictures I put in this morning and only just found them again ,oh life is such fun !!!!
Ok lets get started , I have not stitched allot the past few weeks but I did stitch another one of Dany's I love her charts so much.

                                          Peonies  by Dany       

Stitched on 28 ct
Using a dmc var and Prickly Pear by Crescent Colour es .

With my Peonies just out in my garden.

I sent this little pin cushion to a friend it is in back stitch.

My lovely stitching friend Lynda send me a lovely gift look at all this monthly place mats , thank you my stitching sister .

                She stitched so many beautiful ones.
                A whole year of flowers .

        Look what we found on our way to lunch one day

  7. Gorgeous gorgeous flowers!! Such pretty cross stitching, very sweet. The year of flowers...what are the little squares? Napkins?

    Tatted snow flakes soooooooooo beautiful. Not a craft I've tried, but I do like to look at things made using that craft.

  8. Oh my word June, everything is so gorgeous. Your garden didn't seem to be hurt from all that snow you had and the bad storms.I know you will have put a lot of energy and time into your garden and it has given beautiful results. Love the header picture.

    1. Thank you Shirley , the snow I think has made the garden better.
      Maybe it was full of food ha.

      Enjoy your day .

  9. Hi June, Gardening is something wonderful to relax. I like that too.
    I like your motive of Dany very well, a tolels Finsih.
    I also like the pincushion, sometimes in a different technique.
    Nice gifts from Lynda and Sis. Again, great pictures of your garden.
    Big Hugs, Martina

  10. Toutes les fleurs de ton jardin merveilleux et de tes broderies nous montrent que l'été arrive malgré beaucoup de pluie et d'orages violents.
    Merci pour ton partage ma chère June.
    Je te souhaite une semaine heureuse et t'envoie toute ma tendresse.

  11. quanti bei fiori sui ricami e nel giardino!

  12. Oh my, June, you are such a busy lady. I'm sure you will never suffer from boredom, lol.
    Such a wonderful garden needs a lot of attention and you have to spend a lot of time in it planting and weeding and watering. But what a delight to see the results of all your work, isn't it?
    I love the peonies you stitched after Dany's pattern. And so great how you finished the little pillow with that delicate piece of lace.

  13. Gorgeous precious flowers June, hope you are not suffering the violent thunder storms as we are in the north of Spain, such heavy rain to spoil delicate blooms, Love your pretty pincushions, especially the one done in back stitch and what amazing gifts from your generous stitching friend.

  14. I'm so sorry you've had such computer problems, June! I hope it behaves itself from now on :)

    Love your pretty pillow and what wonderful gifts from Lynda! I imagine that took her a lot of time to finish...

    Your blooms are amazingly beautiful--just love all those luscious colors. We planted a peony last year, but it only has two blooms--hope next year will be better.

    Happy June to you, June!!
