scissor fobs, WIP's, plants/flowers...

Fobs that were sent out since March till June. I ran out of the light cream ribbon and couldn't get the same at the shop where i bought it last year, i think the red one does fits too.

Here's my progress on the Jane Austen Sampler...

...and started a new project, though this is the second time i am stitching these serie, ordered by one of my cousin's.

Wonderful surprises from the mail lately. Thanks so much Nia!! It smells lovely!!

Lovely fabrics, threads and charts...Thanks so much, Nita.

Been to a Garden Center with a friend last wednesday, she had booked us a worksop for an hour but our main purpose was to buy some pots and plants.

Above pic where the plants i've bought for outside and inside and a big pot also for indoor.

Was able to arrange the plants for inside and for ones outside...still have to do,
been working long hours since thursday and though off day today we were out to a birthday party and visiting family.

Hubby is home and be staying for 3 weeks and he'll be off following a course for a week. The same place as last february if it's not of my work i can go with him but summer vacation started so it's gonna busy here on the island!

Thank you all so much for your continued visits on my blog especially to those who takes the time to leave me a comment. I truly appreciate them all!!!
