How is everyone today ?
I hope you are having a good day , I love Sundays I like to do all the little things that get left in the week and the hours go much slower .
Well my crafting is really cut down this week , I pulled my hamstring a couple of years ago and it is so painful and now I have pulled it again , it's my own fault I am always climbing up steps on to walls up in the garden and I have to stop it I think I am still 20
 ha , I am so lucky I feel so fit and well and do the most crazy things .
So this week I have been in allot of pain , it hurts to sit the only time the pain goes is if I stand up or lie flat ,well that's no good  if you sew.
Today I am feeling a little better so will try and stitch today before my team play ,we lost last week ,hope we are better today.

So first up is one of my SALs loving this one .
                                By Ricami di Marula .

                Slow stitching on the baby stitch.
                     Hoping to get lots more done soon.

A new buy a Set of 3 vases from Next I thought they would look nice with Spring flowers next year.

Poor garden took a beating this week after the storm and winds we had lots of rain.

Many thanks for all your lovely comments enjoy the rest of your day .


  1. {{big hug}} poor you June, I hope your pain is soon a thing of the past.
    Very pretty lavender stitch, that's beautiful.
    Your header pic is delightful, really summery.
    Have a lovely week, even if it means you have to be restful xx

  2. June: I am so sorry you are having pain, I hope it goes away very soon.
    I have not started my Lavender stitch just yet, I hope to have it started this evening.
    I am looking forward to seeing the Baby Stitch design.
    The vases are lovely, so sweet.
    As always your garden photos make me smile.


  3. Hello June, I hope you get better soon. I am working on the rose house. Just started the house the other day. I will do the lavender stitch later maybe next month. Not much happening here. We did take Camy out to Turo yesterday and it was a good thing because it is raining here now. My friends have gone back to Ontario, they left yesterday morning. It was a good visit. Your garden is beautiful as always. Take care and rest up. Sending you big hugs.

  4. Sorry to read about your pain. Hope it will be gone soon.
    Lovely stitching and beautiful pictures of your flowers.
