"A Magnifique Paris Easter Weekend."
I found this super quick cross stitch to make.
This time I used Cosmo threads, which are just so lovely to stitch with and 25 count even weave. The free cross stitch pattern was designed by Kim who blogs at Wisdom with Needle and Thread.
Thursday evening I realised it was time to make a batch of Hot Cross Buns. So much nicer than store bought ones. Though the Chocolate ones that Ainsley and Julian brought with them on Sunday didn't last long either.
Lucy made this cake especially for Bonnie. A double layered Chocolate cake with so many calories, we didn't even try to work that one out.
Happy Child and Charles Rennie Mackintosh Roses.
I have been picking a few roses from the garden. These ones are "Happy Child" which is the yellow one and the pink one is Charles Rennie Mackintosh .
Now this weather we have been having is lovely but the garden would really love some rain. 16 mls for the year is certainly not enough. I haven't even put in any Winter vegies yet . We have lost lots of plants over the Summer/Autumn, ones that I thought were really tough like Wormwood Rosemary and several Plum trees and Prunus Nigra's have gone to garden heaven. In the meantime I have been burying the food scraps with a dollop of Dynamic Lifter to build up the soil and try to get some moisture into the ground. The soil is so water repellent at the moment.The joys of gardening in the Wheatbelt.
