A little stash and some pictures

No stitching pictures to show except for a little stash photo. These are Vikki Clayton HDF silk threads in a variety of shades lying on a bed of Gander linen. 

I was sitting out in the garden earlier this week and noticed this unusual cloud formation so out came the camera and I took a few shots. 

And then I took a picture of one of the flower pots on the wall of the house. I think the yellow and blue look really pretty together.

And last but not least, here is Tommy dining out on tomatoes and lettuce! 

I have not yet made a start on Jane Rees as I still need to cut and overlock (serge) the linen. My friend Caroline from Stitch-n-Bitch brought herself a new overlocker and kindly gave me her old one complete with instructions and a list of swear words! I managed to get it threaded up, I hope correctly, and will be cutting my linen to size and trying it out shortly. I have also been stitching up the new pink design but I stitched one row of letters one row down too far so out these had to come and I will be putting these stitches back in right place later. 

Not much else to report so ...

Thanks for visiting, have a lovely weekend and
Take care

    Awww! Tommy looks like he is thoroughly enjoying his al fresca dinner!!

    That is an interesting formation. It almost looks like trails from jet exhaust. Do you live near an airport??

    What a lovely post full of colours Carol :>)
    Your silks from VC are really vibrant just like an artist's palatte. Lots of exciting stitching ahead using these:>)

    You almost echo all the colours in your other photos. I love the wispy white clouds against the deep blue sky & the blue in the wall pot is almost the same colour blue.

    Tommy's dinner looks very colourful and tasty too, I'm sure that's a smile on his face.

    Gorgeous photos Carol.

    The sky is so blue, and your flower pot is full of colour too.

    I always love seeing photos of Tommy.

    Yummy silks! Lying on a bed of Gander LOL. It almost sounds like a recipe.
    Your flowers are glorious and Tommy looks as though he is enjoying a banquet.

    Lovely! Are any of those silks the "new" Primitive series? Tommy looks so cute (and his tomatoes look scrumptious!)

    Hoorah for Gander's arrival!

    Lovely flowers. Is the yellow one called Marigold? What about the blue? Can't get enough of blue ones over here.

    What wonderful coloured threads you have there.

    The girls enjoyed seeing a picture of Tommy and now want a tortoise of their own.
