Catch up


Been a while since I added to my blog .... lots happening at the moment - but I have had time to get my Random Thoughts sampler finished .... thanks to a little help from my friend Val, who helped out with the tiny bits of one over one 'cos these old eyes can no longer see properly ! It has been a lovely sampler to stitch and now is ready and waiting for the framer when I can afford it ! ...


We have had some nice weather here in my part of the North East - some quite hot and sunny days which have livened up the garden ...

The raspberry bush is in flower as are the strawberries, blueberries and potatoes .... in the greenhouse I have a few different tomatoe plants and they are also flowering along with carrots , lettuce and beetroots now growing strongly........


Joseph's sunflowers are shooting up as are the sweet red peppers - so hopefully a good crop this year .... almost forgot - the apple and cherry tree are also flowering ! ....

Looks fabulous Val, beautiful stitching that I'm totally in awe of. Enjoy your fruit, if my kids were there they'd have eaten the lot by now!

A fabulous finish Val, i am a big fan of the clip-on magnifier for the tiny stitches

Sounds like you'll be having a bumper crop of homegrown goodies to eat this year

It turned out beautifully! Congrats on the finish. The colors are quite lovely.
I am also doing that one but I am not near finished yet.
You do gorgeous work.
Your garden sounds heavenly. We are due to get some rain tonight and tomorrow. We do need it.
Love your blog by the way.
God Bless ~
