Tuesday 9 th April 2014....

(Borrowed from Google Images)

Well hello!

I have been a busy person today!

A little while ago I asked in a local group for some help with my garden as it was far too much for just me to handle.  Jon and Han could not help and I needed to tidy up the garden.  Difficult when only me... very daunting task really.  So yes I asked for help and the most loveliest lady offered to help.. I was blown away.

She came round today and luckily the sun was out and it was nice... but hard work!

Here are some after photo's that Han took for me.. no before photo's as it was terrible...

I should explain that we have this ramp out the front of our home, for Jon and his wheelchair.

I tidied up the hedge and bushes on the right of the railing (its kind of a little island with plants in).

Same photo but from a different angle.. much better to hold the railing now!

And in the 'plant island' look what we found....a  fushcia bush ....

And one open... they are very pretty...

Look what we found in the hedge!  Awe some one has lost him :(

This is the small piece of 'useless' garden at the front of our home... I say useless as you cannot access it!  The ramp railings are int he way!  But we tidied it up :)

Look what other beauty we found ...

And more...

That is the font sorted and tidy now!  

As for stitching... now that I am back inside and relaxing I can get back to my stitching! ha ha

I am now looking through my stash for a wonderful gardening stitch to do for the lovely lady who gave her time up to help me.  I thought it would be nice to stitch her something as a Thank You.

I found something to stitch... found it on a freebie site... Cross-Stitch & Needlework... 

Here is what I am using ..

I did not want the lady to wait forever for something I am stitching so I picked a quick Spring Sampler chart :)  Just hope she likes it?

Starting this now at 10.30 pm! ha ha well my hands were in bits, all scratched and sore from pulling up brambles.

I have been working on my Eastery design... I am half way through it.. so will post photo's when I am done! 

On the stitching front.,... my husband has been looking around all the designer websites and as a result I now have a massive pile of 'freebie' print outs!  Thank You honey! :)  I am sure at some point I will use them!

Oh yes!!

A friends blog... Mii Stitch is doing an exchange... I had never heard of the Gorjuss things before mentioned on her blog!  But they are lovely! And if you are a fan of Gorjuss get over to her blog and join in!!

Ok going now as I want to be creative!

Smiles to you all....
