Hi everyone, we were in a gardening mood this week, I cannot tell you how long I have wanted window boxes on my house but it must have been about thirty years in the making! Lol Since having my first house all those years ago I have always intended to have a window box or two but never got around to it, well today is the day……tah dah!!!!!
After all the renovations on the house we are now making the outside look pretty, we are just finishing the back garden and then we can enjoy sitting outside in the summer.
Do you love them as much as I do?
The photo above is the one under my craft room window at the front of the house and the one below is under my kitchen window. Initially I did not think we had enough plants to do both but I just had enough to fill the smaller one too, I have a third one ready to go but we need some more plants to finish. This is all trial and error at the moment so I am just waiting to see what the display will finally look like once the flowers have fully bloomed.
Edited: you can see updated photographs of my garden on this post here.
This one measures 30″ and the one above measures 36″
I also treated myself to these tulips in my craft room, the colours are so pretty and bright.
Now for my stitching news
I have been stitching the Summer pattern that I talked about in my last post, I just need to stitch the letter ‘S’ and then finish off a few stitches here and there and then it is ready for framing.
I am also involved in another Mini Quilt Swap exchange, it needs to be ready by the end of June but I can’t start that at the moment as I need to wait for more printer ink for my computer before I can print off the design that I am going to use.
This is the pattern chart, you can get it from Sew and So in the UK.
Until next time……
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
