Wow the Sun Is out today.

 Well that's a nice change to have some sunshine  today, makes you feel so good at this time of the year.

This week was another busy one , we did get out to lunch and I did bump into my old boss from when I worked at our local wool shop , It was great to see her and her daughter , so I am going to visit her soon and really catch up , she only lives a couple of roads away .

I have a few signs of Spring in the garden , and hubby brought me a gift of Daffodils , they are still in bud at the moment , but will soon be out in flower.

The bedroom is all painted now , so it's the waiting time now for the carpet , curtains and furniture all to arrive !

I have started the other puzzle it's growing but I don't have  much time to work on it , but when the dinner is cooking I zoom in on it and pop a few more bits in place .

This week I have also been working on one of my UFOs  I love this one and may make a garden pillow with it .

I have also spend a couple of hours sweeping up outside and three buckets of leaves went into the garden bin , 

So lets get a few photos up for you to see .

I have been stitching On this UFO this last week .

Au coeur du Jardin by Passion  Bonheur .

I just love her charts .


                                             So what's next's weeks one  ?

                                                    Next my puzzle so far .

                                       It's growing slowly but I am enjoying it .

                             And below is real signs that Spring is not to far away.



This lovely fellow came towards us when we were walking down to the the store .

                                   Wishing you all a wonderful week .

  13. Hello June: Your UFO is a beauty, the colors are lovely.
    The peacock is beautiful, we have a neighbor who has two peacocks they are fun to watch.
    Thank-you for sharing your garden photos, with a minus 12 degree temperature and windchill of minus 25-35 miles an hour the photos warm my heart.

    Have a lovely weekend

  14. Dear June, oh, I love daffodils, how kind of your husband.
    Your embroidered and also your spring garden look wonderful, I haven't seen a free-roaming peacock for a long time, a magnificent animal.
