Beautiful weekend .

 What a beautiful relaxing weekend , we sat in the sunshine I was reading a book , then we would potter in the garden ,watching the sweet birds being so  busy and the black bird was singing the sweetest songs .

The bees were busy  to and a few more butterflies were flying around .

What could be better , then I started to think how lucky we were . 

With others around the world fighting and I would really love for them to have peace .

Well it's been another busy week  so the warm weather the weekend was wonderful.

I did pick up a UFO and started to put in a few more stitches in  , I would like to finish this one for this Christmas .

                                                    Winter Stamp by Vervaco

My friend and I hit the shops this week  we also popped in a few thrift shops and I found two bargains .

                                          A pretty dish and a sweet jug .

                                                    I do love collecting this lovely china .

 I will leave you again with some past stitching many were for gifts to friends and family and a few I keep . Also some garden photos of the garden , it's gone crazy right now every thing is starting to bloom .



                                                     Welcome to my garden in May 


Well I just had to smile while writing this , the rain is coming down .
Good job we made the most of the weekend and the sunshine .
Enjoy your week and above all have fun.


  1. I love Winter Stamp June, so pretty. Your garden always has so much colour, it's beautiful. I have a few yellow roses blooming but we are way behind you. Yes, it's raining here now too, I did manage to get my washing dry before it arrived though, and the garden could do with it. Have a lovely week.

  2. Yes, we are very lucky to live freely and without war in our countries, June. It's just so very sad that the war continues in Ukraine. I can't imagine our lives being turned upside down like theirs have been...

    Love your bird piece--so very sweet! As are all of your past finishes. It's fun to pick up a new piece of china or other decorative item for your home, isn't it? I love getting little treasures here and there, too.

    Hope the rain stops and you can enjoy more lovely hours outside! Have a wonderful week ♥

  3. I enjoyed looked at your old stitches. Your garden is so gorgeous right now.

  4. Your cross stitch finishes are just beautiful June. I love so many of them that I cannot choose a favourite. Your garden looks wonderful this time of year & the rain will give it all such a good drink. xx

  5. Hi June, what nice stitching. Yes, the weather is very warm and everything in the garden explode. The last days we have rain and thunderstorms.

  11. Beautiful, I like your winter embroidery very much, I'm curious what you will do with it.
    The pretty little pillows you gave away all turned out so magical, and your garden photos too, lovely!
    When I embroider I'm quite peaceful, but then when I see the news on TV, it shakes me.
    Hugs, Jutta

  19. June, I"m so glad you got to enjoy some nice weather! Your flowers are looking amazing!! I love antique shopping too and your finds could not be more perfect for you! All your stitching is so pretty and I hope you finish your pretty bird stitch too! Have a lovely weekend, it's raining here and I just bought new shrubs to put in, so that works out well for me!

  20. Ciao dearest June, what a pleasant weekend you have had: everything seemed so comfortable in your beautiful flower garden with roses.
    The Vervaco embroidery is fantastic, just as the ones you made some time before are enchanting. And I discover that we also have in common a passion for beautiful ceramics! I'm glad to hear it. Here, on the other hand, it has been raining since tonight but I must say that it was needed precisely because it was too sultry and humid and the earth and the flowers were starting to really suffer from thirst.
    I hug you and greet you, wishing you a good beginning of June
