My little bit of this big World

Happy little skip

Sweet Dreams arrived yesterday, and I am lucky it's the centre panel
 So I put it into the frame and got going, this is last night's stitching, The flowers should be blue, but I am doing my own thing with shades of blue, and I have added the light green in the middle of the leaf.
 Today I got rid of the wire frame for my herb garden, I got these cheap tunnels. They will help with the cooler weather and keep the cats away.
 I have planted salad leaves, spring onions and radishes, so with the herbs, in a few weeks a nice fresh salad. My fruit area is doing well, the marigolds are also doing well, hubby was happy to see them in the garden.
 This flower I planted last year in a pot and it's back, again I don't know what it is, but the photo is more interesting when looking up.
Had a very good morning with a dear friend, Angela, afternoon with Kev in the garden, and soon we are creating a small photo book for our grand son Logan, from his 1st holiday with us, hope he likes it.


  1. Hello

    Beautiful stitching and garden photos.
    Happy weekend.

  2. I think your flower is an aquilegia, they self seed when the flower head dies, or you can collect the seed and distribute where you want them.

  3. Sounds like an active fun time for you guys. Your stitching is so pretty.

  4. Your unknown flower is a COLUMBINE. It comes in all different colors. Yours is one of the prettiest I have seen.

  5. As always your sewing is lovely andour garden looks lovely especially in the sun. Your flower looks like one of my aquilegia.
