I don't know where the past couple of months have gone but they've certainly gone quickly but I have managed to get a few things done here and there. I was off line for about three weeks as my computer decided it needed a break so I took the opportunity to do some decorating in the hall and kitchen. The kitchen is still not finished but it can wait as the garden tends to need a lot of attention during the summer months.
This year we have decided to cover the flower borders with stones and hope that with the weed suppressant matting underneath it will make them easier to manage. DH doesn't have a lot of time any more and I just don't have the energy so anything that makes life easier is a bonus. We are still having flowers in the borders but we will have them in pots that we can change and move around.

We've had a few days out with the grandchildren but as usual I forget to take my camera or if I remember to take it I still forget it's in my bag. These are a few that we took when we went to Beeston Castle in Cheshire where they had a jousting tournament and bird display.

I have been stitching, these are a few birthday cards that I made,
Teapots is finished, just need the backstitch finishing,
Cherry Hill made into a zip up bag, a free class on Craftsy.
And this is Stella who we had to say goodbye to on Tuesday night. She was always tiny, more like a young kitten but she suddenly stopped eating and couldn't walk properly. Steroids and injections didn't help so it was decided that it was time to let her go. We will miss you Stella xx
Lastly, just a few flowers in the garden and I'll be back soon with a few more bits and pieces,
