 Hello to all my followers , and thank you so much for the lovely comments from last week.

 Well we have worked in the garden all day today and I am so ready for a cup of tea and to put my feet up .
We have a hurricane coming in tomorrow so I needed to do more cutting back in the garden and put a few more bulbs in .
The weather is so mild at the moment and we still have lots of butterflies dancing around the garden, so I have left a few flowering plants in. I even saw a humming bird moth yesterday , now I have not seen one of these for a few years. 
I have two beautiful doves come to feed at 3.30 most days and my little robin and little wren have been playing in the garden .
All the black birds are back too they were missing for a couple of months. 

My hubby had another birthday , we are not going to say numbers any more ! just go with it at the moment we are still fit just hope it lasts . My ham string injury is better now just the odd little pain .
I must be better I climbed on top of the wall to cut back my plants today. 
We have been out a few times this week and went to a lovely Cheese and wine event the over night that was fun.

I have another finish to show you and a couple of projects I have finished stitching.
So here we go .
The finish first , this is my Autumn pin cushion .

                             Another lovely chart by Dany.

                  Naughty squirrel he just found an acorn.

                       Stitched on a cream 28 ct threads assortment from my box .          

                 Almost finished just a few stitches more .
                 LHN "Needle Lady Pocket "
The colour of the material is more like the top one I used again various threads .  

               All done, ready to make into a needle book.

I will make some Christmas hearts from these , Mini makes from CS Crazy mag .
         I picked a few more flowers from the garden.

And a few more left in the garden.

Won't be long to say good bye to the flowers .
Have a lovely week all .

Hello everyone on this nice sunny Autumn day .
I have made the best of this lovely weather and I have planted some bulbs ,  and cut lots of plants back. 

All my washing is done but still some ironing to do after the holiday .

I went into town this week and they already have lots of Christmas things for sale , I really don't want any more decorations unless I see something that pulls on my heart strings then I will be buying .
My Christmas colours are changing a little I like pinks silver and soft blues more now  in the lounge , and plum in the kitchen .
Reds now go in the conservatory and porch and hallway .
I may keep it simple again this year but then I may go mad ! I will have to see how my time go's I already have a full calendar for October .

Well I have had time to stitch this week and I have a finish from last years stitching.
So here's what I have been stitching  .

Just a little more stitching to add .
Bonne Annee or Happy New Year.
By our lovely Dany from 2014 chart.
And now a finish from last years stitching 
By Cuore Battiecuore .
From part of her Autumn design.

You can see here the backing Material .
Stitched on 28ct using DMC threads

                         Added a few leaves from material .

This has been lying in my box far to long .
I really need to finish all my stitching , maybe I will set a new goal for myself.
I must get a few Autumn bits out this week ,like this one.

Two little mice sitting in a leaf how cute is this.
Not sure if I showed you this plate I brought ,  I love little children ones,  takes me back in time.

What lovely words .
I also brought this flowering can in the sale for a couple of £s .
Look's great don't you think.

 And I  cut a few fresh flowers to bring inside.
After we had our first frost this week.

Thank you for your lovely comments .
I do love to read everyone of them.
So thats all for this week . will leave you with the last of the flowers in the garden .

 Hi friends ,
We are back from a late summer holiday .
It feels so cold after being in the sun.
I have been busy and washing and ironing  and packing away.
We had a great time met so many new friends and caught up with old friends , now we are all relaxed we are ready for the Autumn and Winter.
I now need to start stitching some Christmas stitching .
I will pack away some of my WIPs for later but may work on one or two of them .
My PC needs a little work on it so will get that sorted this week.
I can't seem to read my emails or send them a few have gone but not all, when this is done I will catch up with you all.
So a big sorry until I get this sorted.
I have not stitched for a few weeks and can't wait to get back to it .
