Gifted Gorgeousness May

It's the time again to update the SAL where we stitch with things that have been given as gifts to us or are stitching as a gift to others. My first picture is of Herz auf der Wiese by farbenfroh-Schmidt.de2013. The fabric for this which was entitled raspberry ice was part of a gift exchange a few years ago. The piece is being stitched as a SAL in a Yahoo group that I belong to. I am currently stitching part 3
The second is the ever ongoing Flower Power, the chart of which was Rak'd to me many years ago. I've finally finished the Rudbeckias, or Echinacea as they are known by here in the UK and am currently doing a butterfly. Hopefully I can start on the foxgloves soon.
The final piece I've worked on is the backstitch on The Castle. I didn't bother with a picture this time as,although I seem to have done quite a bit more, there isn't much to see. For the most part at the moment we are busy in the garden planting veggie crops. We have been digging potatoes and harvesting things like lettuce, radishes and spring onions and I picked the first feed of peas today, do things are on the move. Have a good month. Thanks you for popping by. I love your comments. Happy stitching x

Very late April update

I really don't know where the time has gone. I keep promising to update but never get round to it. Oh well, here it is at last. First up is the EMS Flower of the month
I was hoping to finish this but unfortunately it didn't happen so perhaps next month. I did have one finish this month. Tulips Praise by Gracewood Stitches
And finally for the moment I am getting on with the back stitching on The Castle.
Happy stitching and thank you for reading this blog.
