My little bit of this big World

Glorious sunshine

Showing off my replacement chilli plants
Our market had all the best stalls back today
They had all gone to a big show last weekend
 This is the 1st corner finished, with extra stitching, I flicked a small bug off my work and it left a nasty mark, could not get it out so I have added a few more stitches. I have also added the yellow centres to the small blue flowers, the design shows it unstitched. I have a huge flower to stitch with the lower leaves, I am thinking a bright yellow almost orange or deep red, there will be four in the outer design.
 It's such a lovely afternoon here, so a few garden shots,
on my little table ready to bloom
I love the contrast of colour's
 
Just a few flowers around the plot, these photo's were all just taken
I have added my photo at the request of Kev at An English Homestead, he makes a great point, we all get on well here in blog land, and make lovely blog friends, other than Dawn and Pam who I have been very lucky in meeting, I do not know anyone else, so will you take up Kev's dare and 'show us your face'.
I resisted the urge to show another photo of my growing melon, it grows at a steady rate, I have potted on my kiwi seedlings, I have far too many, but I will keep going with them. My African violet is now back in flower, and the leaf I planted now has a tiny new leaf growing, so my free stuff is coming along well.
When we were in town, we popped to Tesco, it's one of the few shops where I can get my favourite teabags, Taylors of Harrogate, Blackberry and Elder-flower, a mixture I love. There was a tasting for different types of Pimms, one being Blackberry and Elder-flower, so we have a bottle, I always drink mine weak as a refreshing drink,  so it will last all summer.

That's a lovely photo of you. I hate having my photo taken, I'm much happier behind the camera than in front of it. It's such a pretty blue you're using in your stitching.

All the plants look wonderful. I do love all the cute little pots! How horrid about the bug. Thank goodness you were able to cover up the stain!
