Hello friends .
Well June is bursting out all over the garden has gone mad and  there are roses everywhere .
Today it's been sunshine and showers but we could get outside .
I have had more time this week to spend with my friends and also time with my crafts .

The little stitch below is a joy to stitch it's by La Comtesse & Le Point De Croix , I used a 28ct grey 
evenweave .
and DMC threads . The material you see is the one I used for the backing.


The photos are not so bright with our weather today 

This is a short post today so will leave you to join me in the garden .
Thank you for the lovely comments and enjoy your weekend and have fun.
