No stitching updates to share with you this week, it's been a funny and strange week. I've knitted another bunny he just needs to be made up and i've made a start on the needleroll for the exchange at TS, i took this with me to the stitchy club tonight - another birthday and more cakes this week ... yummy!

I thought you might like to see a pic of this very special camelia i have in my garden. My maternal grandma (whom i was extremely close to, we spent weekends together and she taught me to knit, crotchet and stitch and gamble at cards!) had it as a gift for her 80th birthday back in 1989. Unfortunately she passed away a couple of years later and it was given to a family member who expressed a wish for it. Some years passed and my mother went to visit and it was in a very sorry state so she asked if he still wanted it. He didn't so she brought it to us. My DH, a keen gardener, has nurtured it back to health and it rewards us with this wonderful display each year. I have no idea of it's name so it's fondly called 'Mama's camelia' by my household and is loved very much. Do you have any plants in your garden with special memories to you??
