Amost a week




since I last posted, Where has the time gone, and I haven't been so active around everyones blogs either, no excuse I have just been so busy and the weather has been so lovely.

Thought I would share with you a picture that I took the other evening of a bumble bee having a wash on top of my lily leaves, he was there for ages, so I had fun photographing him.

What else has happened apart from hot sunny but humid days and lots of work, I received a wonderful surprise twice this week in the post, one was from Carol who RAK'd me with Laevender Wings Spring Morning which was in my wish list - not any more it aint, its here by my side calling me to start on it. The other lovely surprise was from Dianne who sent me the most beautiful and unusual bookmark I have ever had, I will take a pic!! it was a thankyou for a magazine I sent her last month. - Thanks ladies I love them both (I know I emailed privately, but I wanted to thank you both here as well.

I have been busy stitching and have made a start on Diannes Neighbourhood RR and I have almost finished Peaceful Ways - La d DA. I have also more or less finished the house exchange from SBEBB, which I know doesn't go out til mid August, but we go on holiday early August for a week so I want it finished before we go. Also tonight I was asked to join in a SAL doing a Blackbird Designs - so busy busy times ahead.

This is another pic I thought to share its one of my beautiful sweet peas that have started to flower, I love this red one. We bought some exhibition sweet peas this year as our garden is so small and I have limited space, there were only 6 plants to a pot which was enough for me to grow.

What a beautiful sweet pea. I don't grow them, I try to and I can get some fantastic ones at my parents house, but here no chance

I've never seen a red sweet pea! I love these, and always buy a bouquet (or 2 or 3) when I see them at the florist. They smell amazing!!

Can't wait to see what you do with Dianne's NRR. :)

Your sweet peas look marvelous. And I love the picture of the bumble although it freaked me out a little at first...being so close. :) I am not a huge bee fan but I like to stitch their hives.

What fantastic photos of the bumblebee. They're lots of fun to photograph when they're busy working. Tough to get a good shot, but definitely worth the effort. Nicely done!
