Wednesday 21st May 2014...

Beautiful flower from my garden

Thought I would share the beautiful flowers that have popped up in my front garden.. I have no idea what they are called.. all I know is that they are lovely! 

Here are some more...

This is the bush those beautiful flowers come from...

I believe these are called fuchsia?... very pretty.

I think this is a weed but that is fine.. I like how yellow it is :)

That was the flowers....

Got me thinking...

Thought I would stitch something new.. a quick stitch as I cannot show you my Christmas stitch I am working on.

Here is how I started...

Then to this...

Then I decided to make something different.. 

Apparently its called a pin roll.. 

The little cute designs I am doing are from this book...

Its the first time I have a pin roll and well I am not convinced that I like it... so I am currently making something else now!

This time I am experimenting with hexagon patchwork shapes... up date to follow tomorrow.
A sneak peek...

Lastly I thought I would share my dinner this evening with you all... I should explain that I say I am a vegetarian... well its more like I am a VERY selective eater.  I only eat white chicken if I cook it and put it on my plate.  See I dislike fat and grease ... and because I am so fussy I hardly eat it.  This chicken I had for dinner this evening is the first meat I have eaten in months!  The salad is just lettuce with cucumber in a ranch dressing.  I actually really quite enjoyed it.
Until tomorrow....

Smiles to you all :)


  1. Hello - The pink flowers are called peonies. I have them in my garden as well. Love them but once mine bloom it usually rains and they end up laying on the ground so now I put a wire cage around them to grow through to hold them up. The pin cushion you made with the bees turned out very cute! Well I'm off to bed have a great night!
