The season's SAL...

...stitched two, which i finished one into a flatfold and the other will be all seasons in ONE piece. This flatfold one will be a gift for a friend. (( you can click on all pics to enlarge))


A huge package arrived last week all the way from Canada....

...see all the goodies! Infact the back fabric of the flatfold is from this package. I LOVE everything!! Thank you so much, Suzanne for your generosity!

Last friday, our new neighbour had a couple of friends visiting from the mainland, and the man works on guitars, they know Chris have guitar lessons so they asked Chris to try and play with him, so he took the instruments out to the front...

As Gillie mentioned before..it wouldn't be a post if it didn't have flowers somewhere in it....so while i still have some blooming flowers around to show, these are from my garden which i've taken last week while it was sunny. Some spots needed more plants but haven't had time to go and buy some. Forgot the flower pots though. Today is so dark and very windy so hopefully this weekend we will have a better weather. We sure glad of the rain but cold winds came along with it so temperature dropped down.


Thank you all so much for your lovely comments over the Tulip fields. It's just a pity season's over, just too short actually. Oh well, something to look forward too again next Spring!

I hope everyone's having a good week!!

Your spring finish is absolutely lovely Mylene! And I am looking forward to see the 4 seasons together, sure it will be beautiful, too. And what a package you received, I am sure that you will find good use to everything :)

Your flowers are beautiful as always. Here we were having sunshine, but yesterday afternoon was windy and rainy. I don't mind the rain, it is needed, but the wind... Hope today or at least the weekend will be better.

Have a nice day,
Edit

Sprin is lovely! Good for you for stitching it twice, I find it hard to stitch something a second time around I loose interest.

Jackie said...

You received a wonderful package of goodies! Would you ever consider doing a tutorial on your flatfolds?
