Its Sunday again - 1st April 2012

Well, due to special request from Mel, I'll start off with a couple more pictures of the "estate".  This is our soft fruit garden which we finally finished planting up this winter.  Raspberries, blueberries, gooseberries (red and green), loganberries, blackberries, blackcurrants and rhubarb.  Now all they need do is produce fruit.  We've also got strawberries but they are elsewhere.  5 rows in my tunnel, one in Mikes and 2 in the veggie garden.  Can you tell I like strawberries?

The one below has been taken to the left of the one above and is the path that leads to the orchard.

On the stitching front its been a busy week but with only one picture.  I've been working on my HAED Mask of Colours and am about one third down on page 9.  Windows (Sticklounge SAL) progresses slowly but Part 5 should be finished this week.  Sweet Flowers Part 2 is also nearly finished so pics next week.  The one I did finish was Part 5 of Ackworth (another StickloungeSAL)  Pic below

Thats about it for this week.  Still seed sowing and potting on veggies for the garden.  Mike has finally sorted out and dug the front garden so hopefully we can start planting next week.

Have a good week
