Firstly, I have nearly finished stitching the wise man/king in the Shepherd's Bush Christmas stocking. This one is called Brett but there are lots to choose from. I am making my fifth! His robe is richly coloured in the variegated thread, Razzleberry! Doesn't that name sound as delicious as it looks? The rest of the stocking will be quite quick from here as the majority of the stitching is in the wise man.
Secondly, I only have another few hours of stitching left on the Christmas ornament by Little House Needleworks called, Bringing Home the Tree. I am thrilled with how it looks. Mary, my daughter, will love hanging it on the tree this Christmas.
As many of you, my lovely readers and friends live overseas this is a warning that I might make you envious. I am going to post a Spring photo. Stop reading now if you can't cope. I am loving my Spring garden. I have only been at this house for 3x Springs and the gardens are what I have planted as they had been neglected prior to that. The snow-in summer, cerinthe and golden oregano are making a stunning border to one of our garden beds. I try to garden 30 minutes every 2 days which seems to keep it in hand. Gardening is not good for the nails even though I always where gloves!
Also gardening related, I recently picked our first lemon from our Lemon Eureka tree and cooked it into Lemon Delicious.
The lemon juice was so flavoursome and I was delighted to find no pips inside. It looks like more lemons are on their way but will take a few more months before they can be picked. I hope I run into the problem soon here I have too many lemons and have to give lots away!
Thanks for wandering through my flower beds...
