A finish, a start and flowers!
After missing the deadline to complete I resisted the temptation to toss this aside and spent my week-end finishing it off. It is such a cute design. I think it would be great finished off framed with school type buttons around a mount board.
I started this a few weeks ago to help keep my sanity during the run up to Prom. The chart is Willow House by BBD that was very kindly given to me by my dear friend Corinna. Keep an eye on my posts as I will be passing forward the chart when I am finished. As usual I am stitching it with threads from my stash and as anyone who has already stitched it will notice I have made it into a portrait piece instead of landscape. I am loving stitching this and wish I could work on it all the time but I need to do an exchange piece, a challenge piece and a few gifts. I really shouldn;t moan at least my stitching mojo is intact..lol.
We have had some wonderful sunny weather recently and it sure has helped the flowers in our garden. Roses are one of my favourite flowers and I have these four growing under my living-room window. Hubby Ian actually thought that the winter weather had killed them off , how wrong was he, they are just gorgeous.
My pots that I filled a few weeks ago are really coming along as well.
Hugs and happy stitching to everyone out there in blogland!
