A little quiet

 

Things have been a little quiet on the crafting front here the last week or so….just working away on my SSCS project….which must remain a secret….not even little sneakies!!!!

 

So I thought I’d take you for a walk through my garden……being spring, lots more is happening on the outside, rather than inside!!!!

Jill F Jacobean Stitchery

This is amazing!!!…If you click on the picture and take a close up….one of our ladies at the guild made this magnificent Jacobean stitchery!  I was in awe…the stitches are so teeny and perfect!!!  I just couldn’t stop looking at it…and it’s going to look even more wonderful when it’s framed…I can only aspire to such perfect stitchery!

Aaah well, must just go off and practice then!!!!! LOL

Have a wonderful week…..I hope you enjoyed our trip round my garden!

Sugary hugs
