Hi everyone ,

Yes  it's Monday again it comes around faster each week .

Last week was another busy one for us , we even went to see our dentist first time in two years but happy to say all was well.

The weather was sunny with the odd rain showers , some days  are very cold and the odd day was warm  .

I walked up the garden and the bulbs are  growing up and are forming already , I even saw some in bud when we went shopping last week. 

But I have a feeling we could still get some bad weather yet , a few years ago , we had a load of snow in April , so I will keep my winter jumpers on.

This week I have finished my first butterfly , and I have been working on one of my UFOs  .

We have been spending time watching the football and some great program's of the life of old film stars . that we never knew about before . We have a few more yet to watch .

Ok thank you all who entered the giveaway , and the winner is Manuela . 

Well done Manuela  can you please send me your address .

I will be having a few more give away's this year so keep watching .

Ok I have been stitching lots of smalls but can't show you  just yet but here is  another one my UFO's with a few more stitches added . 

                                                        Easter Present by RTO 

                                         And my first butterfly almost finished .

I had another Christmas gift from my friend Titty from Italy , Thank you so much .

She posted well before Christmas but our post is very slow. 


Thank you so much my sweet friend , it's yummy , pretty and very useful

                        Look what I found today the first flower of Spring .

                                            What a lovely gift from nature .

                                                     And a lovely gift from my Hubby below .

He knows I am missing my flowers , he always buys me some in the Spring months bless him.


                                        And a Mimosa .I have always wanted one of these .

                                                       BOOK of the week .


 If you love flowers this one is for you .
I want to stitch every one of them .


                                         This book holds almost every flower , its just beautiful .
I spend hours just looking at it , but have yet to stitch from it , I have a few like this .

 Well that's it for this week but look at this little fellow I came across when shopping .
                                                             Have a happy week all.


  1. Dear June,

  2. As always everything is just beautiful June. I love your new book & it looks to have some wonderful patterns in it. Gorgeous flowers from your Hubby.

  3. Hi, dear June. On your blog I see already the Spring, your easter stitchery is wonderful, also your butterfly. And it's also wonderful, that your dentist didn't find anything ;-)
    Have a nice week, Erna

  4. Quel libro è fantastico, i fiori a punto croce sono favolosi! Belli i tuoi progressi

  5. beautiful projects & flowers.
    That book looks amazing!
    Love that little Deer on your header pic.

  6. Hello June,

    The butterfly looks great.
    This book is wonderful. I have it aswell.
    Have a nice week. Manuela
    I'm very surprised that I won.

  7. I love the goat. Nice book of stitching. congrates Manuela for winning. Nice gifts and I love your stitching. have a good week. hugs Lynda Ruth Snowed in again and it rained last night.

  8. Lovely header, I can't seem to get one to work on my blog. Good news about the dentist, lovely flowers and I'm looking forward to seeing your smalls (of the stitching kind)

  9. Another wonderful and interesting post. I like your progress on your UFO.
    Enjoy the week, Andrea

  10. How nice that you are doing well. I'm curious what you've done nice and want to show us soon.
    The bulbous plants in my garden will soon start to bloom too, I'm looking forward to the colorful picture in the garden.
    have a good week, Martina

  11. Very nice reading.
    I wish you a nice day ☺

  12. I'm glad to read that your new year is going well, June! Always nice to get a good report from the dentist! I'm going in March and hope I do as well as you--I really get nervous going to the dentist.

    Love your new header--such a sweet tiny piece for January. And your first butterfly looks lovely as well. I can imagine how much you miss your flowers in the winter, but I know your spring comes much earlier than ours so you'll have new blooms in no time. Wishing you a lovely, relaxing second half of January ♥

  13. That butterfly is so pretty! The flowers are lovely too, especially the ones in the book.
    But where are you shopping that has goats! I've never seen one in our town centre, although we did have a seagull come in the shop once. I had to chase it out with a basket!

  14. Hi June, isn't the goat cute! I so enjoy your cheery posts with your pretty stitching and flowers xx

  15. Such a lovely lot of flowers, stitched and real ones :-)
    Have a lovely rest of the week and weekend x

  16. Very pretty butterfly. Your flowers are always so beautiful they could have been models for those in the book.

  17. Sounds like you've been busy with your stitching and to make headway with UFO's is always a bonus. The flowers are gorgeous, so nice to see color this time of the year. Hope your warmer weather stays with you and you manage not to get more snow.

  18. Lots of flowers here. Congratulations to Manuela.
    Have a nice week end,

  19. June: nice progress on the stitching, it is a very delicate looking design.
    Beautiful butterfly.
    Nice gifts from your friend.
    As always beautiful flower photos.


  20. The butterfly is so pretty!!! Lovely gifts from your friend, nice surprise to be sure! How sweet of your husband to treat you to flowers!!
