Lovely walks and more stitching...

3rd August 2019

I have been enjoying walking in different parks in my area and the flowers are glorious......


...so tempted to pick some of these album seed heads...









.....thistles about 7ft high, colour and texture so beautiful...



....also collected more seed heads.....









...just need poppy heads now......

....went into Richmond Park for a picnic and discovered this amazing wild area.....



...bees and butterflies heaven...



.....complete with insect hotel!

Also finished Mr Foxy as a gift.


Made a card for a special friend's 25th Wedding Anniversary.


 started a new project, as though I haven't enough!!!!

A while ago when I was house-sitting I made small squares to show how different embroidery stitches could be used and different effects using  simple stitches. Last week I bought an old french wooden reel to make a different sort of wall hanging. I saw this idea a long time ago and it really appealed, this is a project I can pick up anytime. 


I have also enjoyed special, precious hours with my beautiful granddaughter, I am blessed!!
