June update

Well not much to add really ... just a progress pic of Herbularius .... this is the upper archways and garden and I will continue with the upper side of the design before moving on and stitching the left, right and bottom sides ...


We have had such a lot of rain here in my part of the North East UK ... really getting fed up with it now - we are supposed to be in the middle of summer !!!!!!  The plants don't know what is happening and nothing is ripening in my garden or greenhouse .... I have lots of strawberries on my two plants but all green and no sun to ripen them  :(  ................  the tomato plants in the greenhouse are barely four inches high! But we have had some help in the garden .... my little grandson Joseph helped his grandad cut the grass when we had a break in the weather ... hope this video uploads otherwise you won't see it

I have now almost completed the top  'garden'  just have to do the right hand side bit, then I will turn the fabric around and stitch the bottom gardens, before moving onto the left and right gardens which need to be stitched on the side ...
This morning has dawned quite bright and sunny and even a little bit warm ! Sorry picture is a bit fuzzy ...

Autumn finished and framed ...

Got my CelticAutumn back from the framers and we set to putting it alongside the other ones I have completed, until disaster struck ....   it dropped off the hanger straight onto the stairs !!  On picking it up, no broken glass amazingly, but the bottom part of the frame was off with the corners broken ... My DH put it back as best he could and it is now in the process of going back onto the hanger .... not easy to take a picture of it without the glass shining, but here it is ....


as for the weather here in my part of the North East UK ...  rain, rain and more rain ! A shame for folks who have a street party arranged to celebrate the Queen's 60 years ...  and also for folks who might have had family bar-b-q's arranged ....
