Sunny weekend.

 Good morning, all,

Hope you had a lovely weekend. it was beautiful here, so we did allot of jobs outside.

I seem to be sleeping over each day, it's funny when our body says more sleep in the Autumn.

I have been stitching this week, and already have a small Christmas one stitched and a few small cards for Christmas,

I have a busy week this week, so might not have so much time for my stitching so may put just a few stitches in my UFO.

I need to make lists for Christmas gifts and cards, I am already in front so far, but you know what it's like a blink of the eye and it will be here.

So that's a job for this week.

 I stitched this one when I came home, I wanted to stitch more gingerbread ones but it's time I may get another started we will see.

                                                     CCN= Gingerbread House 2.

                                         Now I have to think how I finish this one.


                                  Hubby brought me a lovely wrap when we were away for cool nights.

                                          it really sparkles and lovely warm soft cashmere .


                                                    Started a new book so far enjoying this one.

Below a few flowers I picked for inside.

The garden is still giving a lovely display, but we are starting to close it down now ready for the winter.

Many jobs to be done and cutting down and repotting some plants.

We may buy a few bulbs to soon.


                                              These primroses are far too early.

Have a lovely week my friends. 

I will be looking forward to hearing what plans you also have for Christmas.

Have fun whatever you are doing, that's what it's all about taking time out for the things you love to do.


  1. The Gingerbread House is too cute!

  2. Hi June: I need to get going on many gifts myself, Christmas is so close.
    I like your Gingerbread design, so sweet.
    As always beautiful flower photos.
    We just cleaned all the garden areas, it breaks my heart to do so we get so cold here freezing and snow.
    Have a great week.
