Just a little start
but it's lovely already
It did come with fabric, but the count is to big for me
Stitching on DMC, Toile a broader, 28ct
with one strand of DMC stranded thread,
I was two colours short in my stash, but I have matched them
Monday afternoon in the garden
hubby loves marigolds
I have terrible trouble growing herbs in our heavy clay
so I have dig 5 holes for these pot tops (hubby cut off the bottoms)
I do need more slate for in between but it will look much better once finished
Monday started wet and stayed dull all day, I did sort most of the herb bed in the afternoon. I have Sage, Lemon Thyme and Parsely in the 3 planted rings using compost rather than our heavy clay. I last did this garden in May 2013 The problem I have here is I purchase loads of herbs, and they never last long, but I want a herb garden, it's a waste each year as I spend to make it look good. I have Basil seeds in the yellow bucket, Chives around the big pot, my Rosemary and Bay are both planted at the back and doing well. So more spend on my garden, but hopefully this time the herbs will last. I just have to decide what two other herbs to grow.
Youngest daughter and SIL coming for tea tonight, we have an issue with our Wifi and David will fix it whilst we cook tea.
Hubby has finished painting the spare bedroom, photo's next time and we have decided not to put a book case in the room, it looks nicer without one.
So normal week this week, just hoping the weather gets warmer as promised and we can start our summer.
