Happy Father's Day

DH decided he would like to spend his day at home and potter around the garden as the weather was lovely and sunny (which is such a change from recently) and he's never happier than in the greenhouse, at the allotment or outside digging and planting

I decided to get to grips with the Victoria Sampler Victorian Rose Sampler this afternoon. I kept putting it off as the instructions looked a bit complicated ... but after reading through them carefully i had a good couple of hours this afternoon and here's the progress so far. The chart and accessory kit was a present from a stitching friend at Christmas and it came with the Access Au ver a Soie silks, so another first for me as i haven't used these before. They are very soft to stitch with and the colours are really nice. Unfortunately the picture is a bit dull and drab as the darkness is approaching and i think we are in for more rain. If you want to see what it will look like when it's finished click the link in the June plans lol

Glad you are getting better weather Julie. Yesterday here was soo humid but quite dull, I had a horrible head all day...just wished it would thunder and clear the air and my head. It's dull again today....
Love the start to Victorian Rose, it's a gorgeous chart and will be stunning when you've finished it.
Huggles and Happy stitching....
