Midge & the rose bush ...

In amongst this rose on our arbour is not where a certain young Midge cat got his war wound... this rose is Zepherine Drouhin and is a thornless rose. It does have the most wonderful scent to it though and as you sit under the arbour and soak up the evening sunshine you get the scent of turkish delight - my favourite! It's his favourite vantage point to watch the comings/goings of all the wildlife and humans in the garden.

I have a confession to make Karen, i didn't stitch on the LHN Friendship Tree this week so no update pic - sorry. I really wanted to get the basket finished on Friday, but that went into Saturday and then wasn't feeling too good Sunday or Monday. I'm sure it will be out again this Friday though as i missed it.

The second basket has been started this week and fabric/thread for the monthly challenge at JA decided on. For July it's Debbie Drapers 'Love' freebie. A lot of ladies chose this one, so hopefully there will be a good choice of different finishes this month. I think i might take this with me to the stitchy club tomorrow. It's the last one as they are then closed for 2 weeks for the annual deep clean of the Community Centre so we'll be off to the local pub for a meal for the following 2 weeks. No stitching then... what a shame eh!!

Happy Stitching
