Holidays in Action

I've been busy . . . painted my sewing room wall - which ended up in a HUGE clean up and out . . .
Finished a stitchery that I started about 5 years ago, and is now hanging on my wall.
Picked the last of the roses B4 pruning tomorrow
. . . and we have a new member of the family . . .
Nelly!
. . . we're all in love

Your sewing Room looks totally inviting Annie... Sounds like you will be needing to rug up Big Time... before venturing out to prune those roses !!!

It looks fantastic Annie, and I can't believe your stitchery is framed already! And Nelly looks like a star..

Oooh - I'm very new to all this blogging business but like you I love my garden (precious little time to spend in it though) but I am thoroughly enjoying all this likeminded stuff with others. I am just about to publish a post regarding our new black lab puppy who has had a wonderful time digging out my alpine bed belfast sink!!!!! But my main comment was going to be on your sewing room - I am sew sorry so jealous - I have a bits and bobs shelf at the mo - will post pic and have just learned to turn on the sewing machine, thread it and attempt some bunting - you'd never believe I am a collector of anything lovely (jujji) including fabric and vintage quilts - so perhaps with a little inspiration like your blog I will get somewhere - thanks for being inspiring!!!!!
