The 'Summer' part of Carole's SAL...

...a bit more progress on the Tulip design.

I sure miss my stitching but been pretty tired lately, working long hours these i prefer reading than crafting especially in the evening.

I noticed these flowers a couple of days ago behind our fence, i don't know how they got to grow there as before were small tress we've removed end of last year as we planned to built a barn here one day. I did saw these flowers before but i cannot figure it out how they called. Anyone knows???

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.

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!

Mattress pincushion!

Mattress Pincushion
Prairie Schooler Book No. 144
32ct linen
DMC threads

This was actually completed the beginning of May...recently, i am more into reading than stitching. Reading keeps my mind from thinking of my love ones who are far away, hubby now 5 weeks away..expected to be home end of next week. My constant worries about my parents...and quite busy here too with work and voluntary work for the children at school and other activities. Honestly, can't wait for summer vacation, still a couple of months away!

..cut some peonies from my garden and brought inside!

A few potted plants outdoor, would like to buy a few more but i am not sure what kind, perhaps next week as a friend had booked us a day joining a workshop which is in one of the garden center at the mainland. Just got a text message from her so i am not sure yet of the details.

Near summer vacation the kids have ussually a few different outdoor football was the first which they had to play against different school here on the island. Chris group won after 5 different games! I wasn't able to watch all the games as i had to work a couple of hours at the canteen, somebody had too(all voluntary works are quite a lot here...which is sometimes very frustrating especially now that i am back to work. Quite lots of parents are working so you really notice almost the same parents who are present when help needed! These are not common from where i came from...i wonder how is it in other countries....about voluntary works at elementary schools!!

Many thanks to all who stopped by and all the kind comments, they are very much appreciated. I know i am behind reading/visiting blogs...i am sorry, do hope to catch up soon.
