Hello friends ,
Once again a big thank you for the lovely comments .
We have been out most of this week so not much time for  some of my hobbies .
It is just warming up after a cool week and late yesterday afternoon we had showers more like Tropical rain .
So the garden had a good water .
 I worked in the garden for a few hours today .
Then I thought before I start my stitching I better put a blog on.
The birds seem to have settled down now , and there should be lots of babies soon .

So this week I have been working on my SAL.
 Stitching allot of the boarder .
I have also been catching upon my knitting .

So lets show you some photos first is my SAL .


This is so pretty the linen is a cream more like a pale lemon , but really does not show on the photo.

I found this one in my old box so it will go in my basket for finishing .

Almost finished the baby blanket 

My first grannies dish cloth 
Thank you Lynda , you sent me so many in the past and they are so useful .

Now over Easter I saw this blanket and fell in love with it .
So yesterday I sent for the full pack of wool to crochet it.

I did buy this branch of apple blossom in the week it was not cheap but is large and very pretty it looks so real .

Now back to my real plants my tropical plants are flowering and growing like crazy .

They will be going outside after next week .

So after the rain I will take you into the garden .

Roses are coming out all over now 

                                              Hanging baskets ready to go out soon.    

Hope you all have a happy and wonderful week .
Thank you again for your comments .


  1. Your garden as always is so beautiful. The blanket looks great. I like your stitching.
    Love the colour of your granny square and the apple blooms look so real. Well, worth the price. Have a great weekend hugs. We have cold wet weekend here.

  2. The SAL piece is so pretty, so delicate. I love the flowers and the vines. Love the little stitch with the fairy and the bee - looking forward to seeing how you finish it. As always, your garden is breathtaking!

  3. Very pretty blanket...and of course your stitching is lovely. Thank you for the garden walk, your blooms are so colorful.

  4. I love the Tea Pot design it is so beautiful, can you tell us in your next post who the designer is?
    I love the little fairy she is so cute.
    The blanket is beautiful, I am looking forward to seeing you work on it.
    I thought the apple blossoms were real, they are beautiful.
    Thank-you for sharing your garden flowers with us.


  5. This SAL looks so romantic, pretty motifs, delicate colors - I like it very much.
    Oh, the new blanket looks great, beautiful colors. Are you going to take the same?
    Are the yellow flowers a Dipladenia? I got one of my husband's for the wedding day, in red.
    Have a nice Mother's Day and let yourself be pampered a bit.
    Hugs Martina

    Happy Sunday

  7. Hello June,
    your SAL looks so romatic. I like it.
    Your flowers look great. You must have, so we say in Germany, a green thumb. I love flowers but have no good hand for my garden. I am always happy when it looks tidy.
    Have a happy day and hugs

  8. Thank you for your lovely blog. You always cheer me up! I love the blanket and it will go so well with your decor - definitely your set of colours! Your garden is so much further on than ours up here in the north. Thankfully the weather is warming up though. Have a great week x

  9. Les plantes et fleurs de ton jardin sont superbes !
    La pluie leur a fait du bien.
    Bisous ma chère June et bon dimanche.

  15. If you enjoy crocheting blankets, take a look at all the lovely ones on Attic24 blog. Free patterns with wonderful colors. I taught myself how to crochet from YouTube so I could make some of Lucy's blankets - on my third one now ��

  16. A sweet knitted blanket for your new arrival and such a pretty one you are to be crocheting shortly too.
    The SAL is so you ....
    love and blessings xx

  17. Your SAL is looking so pretty, lovely colours. Nice work on the blanket too.

  18. Ciao June, ci credi? Qui piove e fa freddo, è arrivata anche la neve! Tempo perfetto per restare in casa a ricamare. Bellissimo il SAL, prosegue bene.

  19. Flowers are gorgeous! My purple Iris are starting, but we just don't have much else going right now for the color that you have. You're pretend flowers (apple blossoms), truly look real. The SAL are all so cute. The blanket you're going to make is really cute, will you be using those colors? I like the variety of stitches in it, lots of texture. Right you are, you just can't have too many cotton cloths.

  20. I like your SAL embroidery with the tea cups and little house. Gorgeous crochet blanket colours to keep you busy. A joy as always to see your garden. It´s raining here today.

  21. Woooooowwww the flower of your garden are...super! I like the little teapot stitched too. It is a very nice pattern.

  22. Your SAL looks so lovely, and your fairy is precious.
    The baby blanket is so beautiful and the new will be pretty.
    More beautiful flowers, the colours are amazing!
