A new start and a finish

The sun is shining here in Derbyshire and doesn't it lift the spirits. I have felt so much better this last week probably because I have kept myself busy and not dwelt on the things that get me down. Thank you for your kind comments and welcome to my new followers.

I have another finish to show.

Sunflower Inn by LHN

I so enjoyed stitching this with the lovely ladies over at Needlecraft Haven, lovely bright colours after sewing so much red on Beatrix.

I have a new start, this is one for DH. He doesn't usually take much of an interest in what I stitch but he saw this when we popped into Hobbycraft the other week and said that he liked it so hopefully I'll get it done for dare I say Christmas, the way this year is flying by it will be here before we know it.

Fragile Miracles by Joan Elliot.

And I've decided that I need to finish Celtic Christmas, she has been on hold for far too long. This is how she looked last time I left her.

Once again it's mostly red but at least it's different shades this time.

We had a lovely Saturday last weekend visiting Lullington Open Gardens, so much time and effort put into the gardens and of course I couldn't come away without buying a few plants.

I think it's called a Galaga or it's common name is Goat's Rue, there's also a Sea thistle to replace the ones that the slugs and snails dined on

These are a few photos from the garden.

This is a self seeded nicotiana plant growing in the greenhouse, it is huge but it's not in the way so we left it.

It's Lily and Callum's summer fayre at school tomorrow, always a nice afternoon out. Catching up with old school friends tomorrow evening and a trip to see our eldest daughter in Ellesmere Port on Saturday so lots to look forward to.

That's all for now.

Your projects are right after my taste, Sue. What a nice little finish that sunflower piece is. I also love stitching sunflowers and pulled out some pattern from my stash and then I put them in a safe place - and what can I say: I can't remember where that was, lol.
A Jane Elliott design is always worth stitching. And that lovely lady in red has been in my stash for so long already. Maybe I should kit her up so that I could start her.

Hi Sue, Great finish on Sunflower Inn and if you let me know your address again I will send you the chart for WWW , I too have the Noel lady and the others too, I have stitched Spring but I cannot stitch fast enough to get all my stash done in my lifetime. However I do have fun choosing what is next. Look forward to seeing the progress maybe you could join Julie on Ufo night lol. Your DH picked a really nice one too , good luck on the time scale !!!!
See you on Wednesday in the parlour. said...

We've nicotiana plants as well. They may be very large and interfere to plant other flowers. Besides, as they've self seeds, they may be brought at long distances when it's windy. I've read in the article that it should be planted only in closed rooms or planting houses.

To make progress, we have to learn from the experience of success, the success of the success of the case, how can we say that the loser has no voice, but you can reflect through his case, summarized. The lesson is not only to learn from yourself, but to learn from others.
When dealing with people, listen more and talk less. That's why God gave us a mouth two ears.
Never be better than others, I never thought I was better than others, I may have more perseverance than they, in the most difficult time, they can not endure, I can cook a second, two seconds.
