A finish

Sweet Flowers is finished.
 It looks so pretty, charming and very old fashioned, perfect for the retro look going around now, I have no idea what to do with it, I don't have a room it would fit into. But it was such a joy to stitch!
 The top panels I was not going to change, but the leaves called out to be green, such cute flowers.
 Close up its a nice neat design, almost everyone who stitched this design, changed some of the colours, so mine is unique, that brings a smile to my face.
 I played with some beads and added a decoration to this photo frame, it was two hearts joined together, I added the daisy to cover the marks from the smaller frame, but I fancied some more colour, I would like to stitch a small heart to go in here.
 We were away last weekend, home to the village of my childhood, we had a fantastic time, I am so pleased to have time with my two brothers and sister, Saturday night was loads of laughter and fun.
 On the way home, we always pass Stonehenge, this photo was taken from the car as we drove past
 we had the most beautiful rainbow, at one point I hoped it was going to be near the stones but as we got closer it moved further away.
 Two perfect grand son's, Logan above and Sammy below, we were with Logan on Sunday and Monday Sammy and I had a day together.
I have no stitching planned, I have not done any for days, I have lost my mojo, I am not in the correct frame of mind, I have loads of things happening here, and much is not resolved, all I can do is watch and wait. It feels like limbo, roll on the weekend, see what that brings.


  1. Congratulations on this beautiful finish. You'll find another stitching project when it is the right time for it. Lovely grandsons you have.

  2. It looks beautiful. Well done!

  3. Your flowers are just beautiful . . could they be framed and then hung in a bathroom? I think they would be perfect for a "powder room" effect in a bath.

  4. It does look very beautiful and I love the colors! Congratulations!

  5. I have loved watching this piece grow. It is beautiful. This is a fun hobby and it doesn't mind if you have to put it aside for a while. When the time is right a piece will call to you and you will pick it up. Until then, know that you are in our thoughts.

  6. Congrats on your finish, it looks beautiful!
