May's Rose

Here is part 5 of the EMS Rose SAL which I am still really enjoying though I will admit I was getting a little bored with stitching brown letters yesterday. There were two more partial letters on this part but I would rather wait until next time and complete each letter as I stitch it.

Yesterday on the way to town we stopped off at a local garden plant sale. We got three tomatoe plants for the greenhouse and some tiny alpines for my front wall and also for the side of the waterfall as we lost a lot at the side of the waterfall when we got a leak last year. I also bought some fuschias for my Mum who is an avid fuschia grower and as there were some with names I did not recognise I treated her. So this morning we have been to visit Mum and then to the Garden Centre to get more compost. I am just having a nibble of lunch which writing up my blog and then I am going into the garden to help DH for a while. Hopefully I will get some stitching done later.

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend with nice weather and lots of stitching time.
