This Weeks UFO Update

I didnt enjoy stitching the Hibiscus as much as I have the other flowers and I think it was because it didnt look right as I was stitching. However now its done and the backstitch has been added its lovely. As it was such a lovely afternoon I managed to take the picture outside amongst the forget me nots and bluebells, the garden is looking very bluey at the moment with these flowers on the ground and the lilacs and wisteria just coming into bud above them.

Thanks for all the lovely comments. They are really appreciated and I just love to know you enjoy looking at my work.

It is looking beautiful, and what a perfect way to show it off by placing it by your flowers. The weather certainly was cooperating for you. Glad to see on your earlier post that they were able to take the kitty piece that you did after all. It was so cute, and with the purple yarn it fit the coloring asked for. It will be a wonderful addition to the quilt.
