I can’t believe it’s been a week since my last post! I try to update my blog Mondays and Thursdays, but this past Thursday I changed the company that I get TV, internet and phone service from, so couldn’t post because of all the work that was going on. Then with the long weekend, Monday felt like Sunday and it wasn’t till late evening that I remembered I hadn’t posted! So what I’m wondering is if there’s a blogging equivalent of prunes…something that will help keep me posting more regularly!! lol

Not too much stitching going on…the weather turned really nice so I have been trying to catch up with all the gardening chores that hadn’t been done. Here’s a picture of the progress on the Mighty Samurai….he’s such slow progress! Hope you are not getting bored with him!

And since I have been working in the garden I thought I would show you one of my old designs that seems rather appropriate!

She appeared in an issue of World Of Cross Stitching, but unfortunately I did not receive a copy of the magazine so can’t tell you which issue it was.
Here's a close up of the beads from the watering can as they don't really show up well on the previous picture.

Isn't she sweet? If only she could work her magic in my garden!

Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time...happy stitching!

Sorry but I can't even think about prunes, ugggh! I never tire of Samurai. The colours are so rich!
Sweet little garden design too.
Hope you managed to accomplish everything you set out to do.

Your Samurai is getting there slowly, all progress is good.
Cute garden angel - trying to get in our garden too but stitching is more appealing ! :-)

Prunes!! That made me chuckle Rhona! I'm the same way with posting. I tend to post once a week but I got so busy it slipped my mind! I'm loving the samurai's progress, he really is coming along. I love your garden angel too. She's very sweet!
