"Makes Me Happy Monday."

Hello,
Happy Monday.

Making me happy this Monday are my hexagons.


The to do pile is less than the done pile which is a good feeling.  This is a slow stitching project which I pick up and work on in the evenings. If I have a night or two not stitching so be it.

We visited another open garden on Sunday. This one was  aptly named Krannynook in Helena Valley.
As we pulled up to park we realised we had visited this garden before. There is so much to see in this garden that you could visit it again and again and find something  new.


Isn't this a great arch made of horseshoes. The chairs and tables just behind the arch are made of chain. 

Enjoy the wander around the garden...








Every available space was filled with plants and ornaments. There were lots of twists and turns as you walked through the garden. Surprise places to sit or hide were everywhere. The one thing I did think while wandering through the garden that it would be very hard to work out where someone was if you wanted them.

Saturday I was happy to go to a garage sale run by two crafty ladies. I managed to pick up some embroidery threads a few cross stitch patterns and several metres of fabric. One of the ladies owned a craft shop years ago and is de-cluttering. There was so much I could have taken home but one has to be realistic. Someone who does a lot of knitting or crocheting would have been in heaven with the amount of wool that was for sale.

So what is making you happy this week? I would love to hear.

Happy Monday.
Bev C

What a beautiful garden, love the sculptures...thanks for the tour. Good to hear you got some goodies at the garage sale too. Your hexies are very nice and it is always good when the to do pile is lower than the done pile!! Very encouraging! Enjoying the little sunshine we are getting this week.
