I put the final stitches in Lettres last night, ironed it this morning and here it is (crease free for a change 🙂 )
I really enjoyed stitching this design and have an evergrowing wish list of more Isabelle Vautier charts I would love to do. So Claire, if you (or anyone else for that matter) would like to do another SAL some time, just let me know and I’ll be right with you!
It’s another wonderfully sunny day here in Swansea, Phill is already out the garden putting up a fence, I have to do a couple of hours work, which I can do from home, while I wait for the sun to dry out the grass in our front garden before I get the lawnmover out and give it a cut. Then I’ll probably work in the back garden for a couple of hours this afternoon. Luckily we have no grass in our back garden, Phill designed it to be easy maintenance when he landscaped it seven years ago. You can see pics here. They were taken when it was first finished. It’s weathered really well though and a lot of the shrubs and trees are more than double the size they were then, also we don’t have as many planters full of summer bedding plants now, they are a lot of work and we can’t always find the time to keep them looking good, we don’t have so much colour but we try to make it interesting with easy maintenance shrubs and trees.
There are also some pics there of Ginger and Louis when they were tiny, just a couple of days before Ginger’s accident. It’s hard to believe that they are six years old next month, how time flies!
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend, and that the weather where you are is as lovely as it is here.
