A SUMMER"S WEEK.

Hi there friends , 
It's been warm and sunny this week a little windy too.
Everyone of my roses are now blooming , I am rushing to do the gardening,  flowers are popping up before my eyes .
Do you believe in talking to your flowers I do .
This story is so true I had brought a Kiwi fruit tree 7 years ago and it never fruited , so I told my DH we need to buy a female one but how do you know if they don't say on the package .
Anyway I brought one a week ago and popped it next to my other one and I told my DH if it has no fruit in the next two years you can cut them  both down. 
The very next day ! I have fruit I called out to my hubby and he just could not believe it , I will show you photos next week when I take my camera back outside.
So there you go ,  plants have ears so try talking to them .
                            ------------  ⚘ ------------

Here are my two Wips can't show anything else at the moment.

                   I will let you know next week what my design is called  

                       
 
                          Just a little more stitched on this one

                  
                         -----------------------------------------
           First cucumber , I have cut another three they are growing like crazy.

                                              
Lots of blooms out every where the garden is bursting out .




  
                                         







Thank you again for the lovely comments and I am hoping to catch up with you all very soon.
I have almost planted all the plants out that I had grown this year I can sit back and enjoy now , just going to stitch for an hour .
I am getting withdrawal moods I need to do more stitching  ha.
Have a lovely week .

SPRING CLEANING

Hi everyone how are you all .
Enjoying May I hope soon moving on to Summer !
Well I have been doing a little Spring cleaning but not really in the mood for it.
I thought I would put on a new post , I am just waiting for the lock smith , to see whats wrong with my front door it is not locking .
So he should be here soon. 
We have showers again today and sunshine for moments.
The garden is growing away and I just can't keep up with it this year  it's all growing so fast or is it me getting slower ha.
OMG yes it could be that I am getting slower I have a BIG birthday just around the corner , I am just hoping I have it wrong but no I just counted the years and yes it's right .
Oh dear I  have so much to stitch and I need a life extension. 
Can anyone help.
The only good thing people don't believe me ha.
                                ------------------
Ok I just thought I would start another WIP so here we are just a little peep .Oh dear now it's making me want some cake .



I have been stitching but can't show you yet but will soon, so here is my other WIP  Growing slowly.


 I just found this needle book from years ago 2006 ! thought you might like to see it , always a nice gift to make for a stitching friend, this I think was a free chart but I added my own bits on the 
end.



Just stepping into the garden before another shower of hail.










 
 Toms are green and growing soon be picking.




I thing the cucumbers are ready I think I will pick one for tea .
                                    ---------------------
Well that's it for this week , but hope to show you more soon .
Thank you once again for the lovely comments it means so much to me , enjoy a lovely week.

MAY BLOSSOM

Hello everyone ,  I do hope you are enjoying the beautiful month of May .
I love this month the best of all.
 You see lots of May blossom on the trees everywhere you go and the garden is bursting out everywhere.
I have never known a year when we still have spring flowers out the same time as summer flowers , it's wonderful.

Well where have I been , well we are so busy right now and I am doing some catching up on family and my lovely friends so it's been a nice week , we even had lunch out twice  this week .
So not allot of stitching but I am still working on my WIP and just stitched another Christmas Ornament , I have a big basket of ones to finish sometime.
I have lots almost stitched but will show you soon.
So better get this blog on and I may stitch for an hour , I have been catching up with  some cleaning today . I keep telling myself hurry then you can stitch , but it's funny you start one job and then another and so on , so now I set a time , I think it works better.
So here I have a wee little Christmas stitch.

             Gingerbread Cookies by JBW Designs 


 I stitched over one on 28ct you can see the sparkle on the material
                           With DMC  threads .

MAY.

Hello everyone , 
Well here we are the start of May.
I am trying to keep up with everything , even though we are very busy right now.
I am growing lots of seeds and pricking them out .
And de-heading the old flower heads.
We had our first heavy rain yesterday for over a month so that will do the garden so good.
I have stitched a little but again not much time to spare last week or this week then I hope to be back to normal.
So lets show you first another little stitch I stitch for Easter.
            
                   Sweet little rabbits playing in the sunshine.



                         Design by the lovely Dany.
                        Called Printemps Dans Le Pre .
                  Stitched on a off white 28ct evenweave .
                              and any dmc  thread .
                               -------------------------
                 May brings such beautiful flowers
                   and these are ones I love so much Lilly Of The Vally .



        
                           Wonderful perfume .
                                -----------------------
                    And now my WIP Last time .
                                    

And now.

I was out shopping one day last week and found some frames going cheap so just had to have them .


                 The hearts were just £1.50 in the sale.



And this one £2.50 from a second hand shop .
Now I will keep looking to see what I can stitch to fit in them.
------------------
Come on take my hand while you are here and lets see what we have in the garden that's in bloom.

                         
                             Many of my roses are out now.



A white tulip.












I will show you more next time
I am trying to make my back garden into a old cottage garden .
With flowers out most of the year but it takes a few years to get it all growing to how I want it.
Thank you again for your kindness lovely comments and your friendship wishing you all a lovely May.
