Short on stitches

It is just so great to be able to plan the weekend and have the weather behaving, with warm sunny days, we have spent all the time outside. Saturday in the garden, Planting, weeding and then a BBQ.

My Acer is doing very well.

The Magnolia tree is still beautiful,
I have spend the last few days picking up petals off the ground,
but any work with this tree is worth it.

Kev brought me another White Orchid.

Sunday, we should have worked in the garden, but went shopping instead, and then we had a ride on hubbies motorbike, first time this year for me, and early evening we had friends come over and share a glass of wine in the still warm garden.

For the first time in months I have not done any stitching, it was just so nice outside, I did take books out with me I need to find some more patterns for my family sampler. The Mr Bump, came from a Mr Men Alphabet, which I have now passed on, so I don't know who produced it.

Today is my last day at home, Tomorrow I start a new job, after 10 months home, all part of my well again scheme, I am only working 3 days this week, and with Easter, Bank holidays and a Royal wedding, it's going to be 4 weeks before I have to work a full 5 days. Then I have a week off in June, so less time for stitching, but I'm earning again, so yea money in my purse.


  1. So you'll be easing yourself into the job then?
    Good Luck with the new job what will you be doing?
