Cross stitching and some Cucumber growing.
The tennis is over so I can get back to blogging. I did a little stitching while watching and cheering on the players. First up a Lizzie Kate design which is a freebie on her site.
I made it into a pin pillow, of course I added some Lavender. I used some star buttons Chris sent me ages ago. The little heart button she got for me from Hong Kong this time last year.
This pattern for the Babushka doll I have had kitted up for far too long. It only took a few hours to get done. Also used Chris's buttons from Hong Kong on this little hanger. It is currently hanging on a set of drawers.
The Cucumber growing has/was a success until we had that awfully hot weekend of the fires. Only one of the plants from this punnet that was growing has survived. We had picked a few before this happened. They were so delicious Other seeds that were planted following the moon planting guide have taken off. I am happy to see this working in the garden and look forward to our next 11 days of prolific growth to get out into the garden.
