A new project for FNSI.

Hello,

I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Last night was Friday Night Sew In.  I see there were 161 people stitching there hearts out together. I started a new project that I have had waiting for a little while. It is designed by Michelle of Rag-tag Stitching and was a freebie through the Homespun magazine website.


It is called "Tea in the Garden". It has been designed as a wall hanging but I wanted to use it as a table centre so changed the design of the flowers. Michelle designed the flowers as three dimensional. Hoping to get back into stitching some more tonight.

We spent the day out in the garden,culling some old vegies and preparing the beds for the next crop. Can you smell the blended manure? Picked heaps of Cauliflowers, Broccoli and Garlic.

Hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Happy days.
Bev C

Does having tomato seedlings coming up from seeds I threw there count as vegie growing???? What do you use to combat the insect marauders Bev?
