Sunday 3 March 2024


 Here we are another new month , I do like March it's like a new start taking us into Spring , lots of surprizes in the garden with plants and bulbs trying to break out.

February was very wet and the rain is still coming down , and its getting a little colder this week , but you know Spring is almost here.

This week really rushed by so quick , and it's been so dark for stitching I have to wait untill night time so I can put my lights on to see my stitching , so roll on Spring.We have had far to much rain , and today we have sunshine after a white frost this morning .

Tomorrow is our Anniversary  .  I never count years anymore , we just enjoy life to the fullest . But in just a few years time it will be a a letter  or card from the King .

So today is sunny with cloud and very peaceful outside apart from chirping little birds ,we love to watch them . 

So this week I have been stitching on this beauty .

Garden Interlude by Lanarte .


 I wanted to stay with this one , but I have a boxful to go through but will pick it up again very soon 
               Just put the last piece in  about 10 mins ago  , I am getting faster .   
                Hubby could not believe how fast  I was  .  
              I always put the outside edge in first  then it's easy .      

A gift from Hubby 


Our Spring bush ,we brought it last year ,
Not sure where to plant it yet .

And here is a photo of us from our hols last year some friends took the photo and put them on mugs we have one each , what a beautiful thought .

  3. First of all--HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to you and Ron tomorrow, June! I love the mug with your photo on it. We have one with a photo of our sons on it that a friend gave us--so thoughtful! That is a pretty piece you are working on--love those colors. And you are really speedy putting together those puzzles. They are fun to work on in the cooler months. Love your tulips--such cheerful colors. Have a wonderful day tomorrow and a great week ahead! ♥

    Hope you have a good week.
