I just couldnt resist. Once I had downloaded this it had to be stitched at once and I love it. This times was a very quick stitch so it didnt take very long. If there is anyone out there who has not seen this chart if it the new freebie from Papillon Creations and all you need to do is add your name to the mailing list. You will then get a newsletter with a link to the freebie. There are three different versions of it, the one I am doing is the speciality stitch version.
It has been a beautiful day here and we have spend most of it clearing the garden. I never clear my garden at the end of the year as the dying back growth, the flower seeds etc all help to keep our birds and insects safe in the winter. For this reason the spring clearing is an added bonus as we strip things away to find snowdrops and crocuses and all sorts of other little plants starting to peep out - or in many cases busily producing their flowers in the warms beneath last years growth. The only thing against leaving the seeds on the plants like this is they often just seed themselves where they want so you never know what is coming up where. This doesnt matter to me as I love the gay abandonment of my garden but it would not do for those who like everything in its place. If I find a foxglove coming up in the middle of the path I just step round it, I would rather see it flowering in the breeze and providing honey for the bees than see the path nice and clear.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and I am now going back to ufo for the rest of the day so will hope to post a pic of that for you tomorrow.
