Hurrah, at last, a few more stitches in Ms Hannah
. I finished as far as the Z in both the first and second alphabets. I love this sampler and using one strand of silk, over two threads on 40ct fabric, makes it look so delicate. The shade of green is not unlike the green that Donna chose for her QFRR
. I am sorry for the poor photo but the light is terrible here today as it is dark, gloomy and raining.
And now for some frogs but not the stitching kind! While in the garden yesterday I noticed a movement at the root of the honeysuckle and, when I got closer, I could see three frogs (or maybe they are toads - what's the difference?). Can you see their tiny faces? They stared right back at me and were not at all concerned when I zoomed in with the camera.
It was a beautiful sunny day yesterday so I spent most of the time in the garden. My potatoes are enormous and, hopefully, after the deluge of rain last week, my tomato plants have recovered.
And, I think that my eggling is budding! I will wait a couple of days for it to flower and then post a picture. I am so eggcited.
Thanks for visiting
