Stitching, designing and planning my garden in France.
The weather is beautiful today, the sun is shining and I am sat looking out into my garden planning where my roses are going to go, I can’t wait to get them planted and watch them bloom over the summer. I had quite a lot of roses in my english garden but here I have lots of space to make a beautiful rose garden with a real selection of my favourite roses.
Here are just a few of the roses I grew in England, I am hoping these varieties will flourish in France as they really are my favourite.
I have been doing some cross stitch designing this week, a Valentine freebie and a new chalk board design called Time For Tea, apparently chalkboard cross stitch is the new craze at the moment, it is basically cross stitch on black fabric so I decided to put a little design together, more of that later.
Here is my latest freebie to stitch in time for Valentine’s Day, Mini Cat meets Miss Mini and falls in love! Lol….
This is such a beautiful scarf. I am not a knitter and for this reason I would love to win a hand knit item. I have tried knitting but get no further than the basic knit and purl stitches. Crocheting is my passion but knitting scares me. My mother was a beautiful knitter – sure wish I would have taken lessons from her. I purchased a book several years ago – Teach Yourself to Knit – unfortunately it has not been used much – maybe one of these days I will overcome my knitting phobia!17 January 2016 at 12:04
