Roses in May .

 Yes Roses in May .

We must be a month in front  this year the seasons seem to be changing here  ,we have been lucky this winter with just two storms and  the weather  being really mild  , and now we are already sitting out in the sunshine .

We are  just putting out our bedding plants  and trying to put lots of red white and blue  flowers out for  for the Queens Jubilee .

We have had a busy week again so not much time for my stitching but I do have a finish to show you .

I have loads of unfinished stitching and I think it's time to start a few finishes .

This one  as been waiting to have a finish .

                       Milk paint Sampler by Mary Garry,s Sewing Cabin 

The back .


                     When out  shopping I fell in love with this jug .



                        Here is a close up of it , I love little girl any thing .

                                                        Must be the child in me .

    So lucky to have sweet friends and my friend Titty  from ITALY sent me some lovely gifts 

                                                     Thank you so much my friend.


                   I love the egg  so beautiful and so are all the gifts thank you.


                               Hubby and I won all these gifts at a fair last Monday .


                         So the GGC will be happy when they come . We do seem to be lucky.

We have had a lovely week again and the roses are coming open all over the garden.

So will leave you with some photos  of the roses that are out at the moment .

Have a fun week all and enjoy your week.



  1. Well, I haven't gone to a fair this week but I am making bagels and bread for the week today. the sun is shining nicely today. Still not very warm. Dave took me for a drive yesterday for Mother's Day and then we had supper and watched Nascar racing from Darlington speedway. I love your little babies on your chair. Sweet win. I oh, so love your roses. Big hugs love Lynda Ruth

  2. Milk Paint Sampler is darling June. She is so cute. :)

  3. Your little needlebook turned out so sweet, such lovely stitching. I so enjoy seeing photos of your roses, especially on a very dreary day like it is here today. Have a lovely week xx

  4. Hello June ... would you believe yesterday I picked 4 roses that are still in bloom from our summer. They were buds but are opening in the vase. Your needlebook is just beautiful - I love the faded colours of it all. I think that wee jug would've had to come home with me too June. Enjoy your week xx

  5. So glad I stopped by. Your roses are lovely and that jug is so pretty.

  6. Oh yes, there is another Queen's anniversary, I really admire this woman, you can take an example from her.
    The needle case is adorable, beautiful.
    Yes, the jug goes perfectly with your stuff.
    I have now also discovered the first rosebud in my house, I am already looking forward to its blossoms.
    enjoy your week, Hugs Martina

  7. Your little needlebook is very beautiful.
    The motif on the jug is very cute. It looks like Sarah Kay. I love Sarah Kay.

  12. Adoro i colori tenui del ricamo e amo tanto le rose, sono felice di questo mese, è pieno di fiori.

  13. Wonderful roses. I saw one lilac yesterday at the market but didn't buy and I am still thinking that had to buy it.
    Milk paint sampler is lovely. I like samplers and are interested in their history and meaning.
    I am in love with the little dog in the middle of the picture. The bunny with his blue jacket reminds me of Beatrix Potter :-).
    Have a nice afternoon June, enjoy your wonderful garden,

  14. Dear June, our vacation is over and I can finally visit your beautiful blog again, the needle book is absolutely magical and the highlight of this post. Thanks for the many beautiful photos, your roses also look wonderful.
    Warm greetings, Jutta

  15. Sweet June: Your flowers always make my heart smile.
    It is finally warm her but lots of bad weather.
    Your Milk Paint design is so sweet, I do have this pattern in my stash maybe someday I will make it up.
    The vase is perfect for sitting with the beautiful, stitched Lady.
    I like all your stuffed gifts, so cute.
