I thought you might like to see a few snaps I took in the garden during our very brief hot spell. Just look at that blue sky! As you can see the trees are full of buds, the clematis is putting on a wonderful display of its pretty pink flowers, the Japanese Acer is in its full glory and the honeysuckle if about to flower and release its heavenly scent. I just love this time of the year.
Although I have no pictures to show you, I have been stitching and all will be revealed shortly. I have also been working on some new designs and one is part-stitched and may be ready by the weekend. This is one for all the pink lovers out there - come on own up - you know who you are!
My Gander linen has arrived from France so I'm now waiting for the chart for Jane Rees
. Once this arrives I will know how many skeins of the HDF Perfect Red
6215 to order. I have been told that the chart says 7 skeins of DMC so maybe I should order 10 skeins of the HDF to make sure I have enough - I would rather have too much than not enough and besides I can never have too much red silk.
After our mini-heatwave, it's dark and gloomy and quite chilly so once I get a few chores done, I will stitch. Anybody want to join me?
Thanks for visiting
Edited: I have been reminded that HDF skeins are shorter than DMC so I think I will double up and add one - just to make sure I have enough! Thanks for the reminder Ann and Valie.
