I hope all those in this hemisphere are enjoying the very hot weather we've been having lately. Just glad its cooled down a bit today!
Last week I've been sitting in the hot sun stitchin' in the garden and FFO (Fully Finished Off) the Butterfly sachet.
|My little helper was there too,|
but she is shy
and hid behind my work basket.
|While I was stitching I noticed an insy wincy spider building a web|
on that pot plant, in front of me.
Can you see it at the top of the leaf on the left?
You know, there's usually a white spider somewhere on yellow flowers!
Sittin' in the hot sun, I stitched a little "beach hut"! Coming along well, despite the frog visiting again ..... and again!
|Trying to show the area I was working .....|
where my needle is poking through.
Actually, "beach hut" is almost finished and I've stitched a camper van (more frogging unfortunately) into the picture ...... just some back stitch to go. I hope to be back with pictures for Gifted Gorgeousness on the 15th ..... watch this space .... no on second thoughts don't watch this space, it's tempting fate!
Have you noticed, that when one is out, there's nowhere to leave a hat, if we happen to the have the weather for wearing a summer hat! So, last week I made time to stitch a ribbon to my sun hat ..... only for hanging up when its not in use! The ribbon is stitched in such a way that the hat can be hung up by the ribbon, but when wearing the hat it's quite out of the way and doesn't show! I know, I'm full of ideas no-one else wants or needs!
While I was sitting a stitchin', a magpie came along and I couldn't resist taking a photograph of him!
Oh, and then I just wandered round the garden trying to find the best of our roses.
and a close up, as this is one of my favourites!
Or maybe red is best?
but then again white is quite nice!
(Apologies to my Mum, I'm afraid the rose bush you bought for my birthday one year has shown its best earlier in the year and I don't have a picture!)
This is one of our wild areas where the slow worms can hide away from our cats; where brambles, wild strawberries and vetch grow (not to mention a good few weeds!). You can see the slow worm from last time if you missed it HERE but I won't show it today as I know some of you don't like to see them!
