It's Summer time .

 Hi all,

Well I missed a week , I have been busy in the garden soaking up the sunshine and planting lots of summer plants .

And I can't believe we are almost a week into June . I have been stitching a little and doing lots of sorting out in my craft room , I start then find things I had forgot about well that's not good news for me I have so  many  beautiful things waiting to be stitched so I started to put them in order for whats next  big mistake because I want to stitch on all of them  I now have box's every where . So that was a waste of time when I could have been stitching , so I will try and just shut my eyes dig in and see what comes out .

I am now set up for the week another WIP from the box , and 7 smalls  to stitch on this week then next month I will add one autumn one and two Christmas smalls and see how this goes .

So here is what I stitched on the last week .

       Milk paint Sampler  by Mary Garry's Sewing Cabin , it was sent to me by a dear friend who I  sadly lost  not long ago and I found it when I was sorting and only had the one side to finish , so I will make it in to a new needle case that I can look at each day and think about my dear friend , I stitched with the silk threads which I now just love .


                                                                      I love these soft colors 

And now the month of June the roses are out and I picked one with some mint 
for a beautiful smell in the lounge .
And popped it into a pretty cup.

Just a few of my lovely pink roses out now.


                       Enjoy your week hope to have more stitching to show next week

  2. I'm so sorry about your friend. That needle case will be a lovely remembrance of her. And your roses are gorgeous-- I can almost smell them!

  3. Happy Birthday! I read on Jo’s blog that you are celebrating this month. Your little sampler is very special and I can almost smell your roses.

  4. It's so sorry to loose a friend, but your stitchery will remember you always.
    Your sticheries and your roses are wonderful, really romantically.
    Have a nice sunday!

  5. Nice idea to make a needlecase to remember about your friend.
    Your roses are wonderful. I love the pink colour.
    Have a nice Sunday, Manuela

  6. Your needlecase is so pretty and will be a nice remembrance of your friend when completed. Your roses are very pretty.

  7. June: I have a few Mary Garry's kits, I do have this one and should get to stitching it.
    Happy Birthday to you.
    June design is beautiful, I bet it smells wonderful with fresh cut rose's.
    Thank-you for sharing the flower photos.


  8. Dear June, Glad you are having nice weather...but yoour rainclouds have come to visit us ;-)) I, too, get sidetracked when I "organize" my supplies. Find thinges I had forgotten and want to work on right then and there...
    Happy stitching,

  9. What a gorgeous lovely pink post June & those colours in your sampler just take my breath away - my absolute favourite pastels. Your garden is beautiful! xx

  10. It will be a beautiful needle case with lots of memories.
    Oh your roses are so far, with us it's only buds so far, but I'm already looking forward to the blossoms.
    Have a nice week. We will have rain today and tomorrow, so time for our hobby. Martina

  11. la custodia per aghi sarà bellissima, mi piacciono molto i colori così tenui

  12. Dear June,
    oh, how well I know it, even with me there are stacks of patterns that I would like to embroider, I have made a list in the meantime, so I can at least make a catch once in a while.
    Such a beautiful post, great embroideries and wonderful flowers à la June!
    Hugs, Jutta

  13. I'm so glad you've had nicer weather and have been spending long hours in your garden, June--your roses are spectacular. Obviously they benefit from your tender loving care. I do love the Mary Garry piece--such a charming design and soft colors. I hope you have a lovely week ahead--we will be heading down to (very hot!) Florida to work on my in-law's house again in preparation to rent it. At least it is air-conditioned :) Happy stitching and gardening, June--and a big wish for a wonderful birthday at the end of the week ♥♥♥

  14. I am glad you finally got the sunshine I sent over though I am still waiting for the rain! The Milk Paint Sampler's colors are very pretty together. The roses are so pretty surrounding your rose piece. Ha ha about organizing your stash; I also think it is helpful but a bit of a waste of time. :)

  15. It's a nice idea for a needlcase, so you always have a reminder of your dear friend. When I clean up my workroom there are always new surprises. I find forgotten embroidery pieses or started patchwork. that's life. Your embroidered June , next to the rose in an charming cup I like very much what a beautiful setting. Whising nice week with lots of sun, Anna

  16. Roses are my favorite flower and yours are beautiful, dear June.
    The delicate colors of your needle holder are very beautiful and the picture of the month of June is romantic!
    A warm greeting, ciao Susanna

  17. Pretty roses June and I like the soft greens of the needlework pattern.

  18. It's a lovely idea to make the needlecase so you will be reminded of your dear friend whenever you see it. I love the mini over one Sampler the woman is holding too!

  19. hoe beautiful and captivating your rose are. they have to smell good. nice garden
    a warm greeting
    curly lace wigs

  20. It’s always nice to have reminder of friends and the colours of the little sampler are soft and sweet , as the little Rose cottage is. The roses from your garden are wonderful.
    Have a nice day, ciao,

  21. June ... sending you birthday wishes.
    Your soon-to-be needlebook is beautiful. Love the soft colours. It will be a perfect reminder of your dear friend.
