My little bit of this big World

The sun has got it's hat on

Hip hip hip hooray
nice to see sunshine in our garden
 Both girls are enjoying the sunshine
it's sunny and warm
nice change after all the rain we have had.
 Rain outside
means stitching inside
This corner is almost finished
 The center will be a huge diamond 
and a different design
so I have edged with black for neater lines.
Once this section is finished I will get on with the knitting, but as you can see stitching will always be my first love. The next section of Carrie Rose will be released on September 10th so I have plenty of knitting time.
So we have a long Bank Holiday weekend, last one for this year, and the weather is going to be much drier, so we can plan to do things. I still have not finished the design of daughters wedding invitations, I have had to order Navy card off line, can't get the dark shade local, that should be here early next week, I have ordered, plain, sparkling and mirrored, sounds weird, but we do have a plan.
Thank you for your comments regarding hubby on my last post, it's such a huge thing for him, and with me staying at work for a couple of years, to ensure we have savings behind us. I have so many hobbies, so I can fill my days, he plays golf but only plans to go out twice a week, and of course winter in coming. His older brother is doing their family history, which was his project when he retired. Because of the long days and driving, he is not offering to help run courses after next week, if he could do local ones he would love to do a couple days each week, it's a shame to lose all his knowledge.
So for now, bring on the weekend


  1. Your stitching is looking really good. The girls are quite happy in the sun!


  2. That design is beautiful , very different from most stitching that I see on the blogs. Have a wonderful week-end!

  3. Your stitching is really coming on, it doesn't take you long to get on with it. It's nice to see the cats enjoying the sunshine, they need to make the most of it whilst it's here, we haven't seen much of the sun this year.

  4. The stitching does look beautiful
    Hope you are having a lovely extended weekend.
