No that does not mean I have been gardening! I hate to say it but I am not a keen gardener which is why I only have a small raised flower bed in my front garden. I wish I was more into it as I love to see pretty gardens but I'm just not! Which is why this roll from Shepherd's Bush is so pretty as it brings some flowers into my life and beautiful colours:) Unfortunately when I got it all finished up into a roll and was messing with the ribbon to get it right the dragonfly button lost it's tail so I was really disappointed.

Another finish is the Dragon Dreams piece and I got it finished up as a bookmark.

I've also finished the scissor fob to go with the LHN Needle and Thread scissor bed but I haven't got the braiding done yet to sew on so will show that another time.
Onto my WIPs now and at the moment I only have three! My 10 stitches a day on Chatelaine Spring Morning just aren't happening at the moment. I just can't seem to get myself motivated to pick it up again yet but I'm sure I will eventually. This is my progress on At Home with Jane Austen by The Sampler Girl which I'm doing as SAL with Barb, Hazel, Lesleyanne and Tracy. I have done more since this pic was taken yesterday as I've had a change round of my rotation and will be stitching on this on Thursdays now.
I did have a good go on Shores this weekend , my SAL with Jane and Nicki, so I'm really pleased. Block 3 seemed to take forever but it's now finished and block 4 is well on the way. The lettering seemed to go really well on this block after a bit of a shaky start!
Finally a little more progress on Just a Thought Sampler Garden Casket. I'm really enjoying this as it's such a simple stitch and so pretty. I'm looking forward, though, to getting onto stitching other bits of it.
While I think on I have added the two JN charts I've stitched recently as well as the LHN to my for sale blog if anyone is interested :)
You may remember I ordered a couple of small Shepherd's Bush kits from Fobbles back in February. Well I'm still waiting! This is not Fobbles fault by any shape or from as they thought they'd have it in by mid march but are still waiting for it to arrive from Shepherd's Bush. Oh well it's not like I don't have anything to stitch in the meantime!! Lol!
Hasn't it been a lovely week here in the UK for all it's been very chilly first thing in a morning and at night?
Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
