A few days lovely sunshine and my camelia bushes are beginning to open their buds to reveal these beautiful pink flowers
I'm beginning to think that Mr Squirrels favourite food is my camelia buds though, they must be the equivalent of chocolate to us as he can't seem to get enough of them. This year is not going to be such a good show as previous years due to his addiction. Does anyone else have this problem?
This little design is what i was stitching last week at the meet-up. It's one of the Sweet Nothings by JBW Designs called 'Our Family'
My mum will be celebrating her 70th birthday next month and i wanted something small to put into a frame. Instead of the charms the chart asks for, i've decided to add her age and maybe name into the spaces, but have left it for now whilst i make up my mind. What do you think would be nice in the spaces??
I've stitched this little kit from Elizabeth Designs before and it sits on my own tree. It was such a lovely design i kept the chart.
When i had my Christmas tree up last year, i had a couple of comments on how lovely it was so decided to make another one to give as a gift this Christmas. Stitched on 32ct cashel linen, no idea of colour, using Vicki Clayton silks in verdigris, dark evergreen and garnet, i think it turned out better than the original one i have LOL
Mothers Day will soon be upon us. The signed book i mentioned in the last post was for my mum and to accompany it i've stitched her this springtime bookmark. It's a design from a very old magazine called The Gallery, it used to be very popular here in the UK quite a few years ago but they stopped printing it.
This week i'm having a new start, i'll be joining Barb and the ladies on Wednesday night at Needlecraft Haven in their The Sampler girl SAL. The design i'll be doing is 'At Home with Jane Austen' There have been some wonderful finishes in this SAL, Tanya Marie Anderson is a very popular designer.
Did you all remember to alter your clocks an hour last night? The way i remember which way they go is by an old saying that my gran taught me 'spring forward, fall back' so it really must be spring now as we have all sprung forward, hopefully there will be plenty more lovely spring sunshine in the weeks to come.
I hope you have all had a good week and life is running along a smooth path for you all, thank you for visiting
