My Mums Garden

Don't be fooled by the title, I'm not showing pictures of my mums garden on this post - even though my mum has one of those beautiful big, elegant gardens I can only dream of, this my mums garden is by Shepherds Bush.

This was another quick stitch really, and I loved doing it, I have a plan in my head to do this again, but with different fabric and colour changes, for mum for Christmas (now I can say this here as mum hasn't a computer and doesn't get to see my blog very often)

Again this is destined for the bedroom, I really better get a move on and get some frames and finish them, then I can take pics and show you all how it looks!!

Well may your day be filled with lots of the above, and you may well be wondering why on earth I am at home instead of work, well its all to do with the incompatance of DHL delivering my new computer, which was supposed to arrive with a Saturday delivery (which I paid extra for), then I left a note on the door yesterday and my neighbour (no not the dishy one), who was going to sign for it actually came over and spoke to the delivery guy who wouldn't let her sign for it, so took it away again and apparantly its coming today, after I rang their automated service, now I want to talk to someone from DHL and 'vent my spleen' as they say, as I have had to lose a days wages because they can't do things right, but can I find a number to talk to someone - No sireeee, but I'll keep trying. Mesh who I got the damn computer from have refunded by saturday delivery payment and were very nice, so maybe just maybe later today I'll have a brand spanking new pc, and I can play Sims on it and Sim Society and Sim city - oh bliss, finally!!!

It's a wonderful piece ... smart colours and such a beautiful design.

I wish you would stop showing these because I love them all and will just have to buy them now. That's two more I have to have. I just love Shepherd's Bush anyway but your photos are so much better than theirs. I hope your computer turns up today. Lots of Love Patti xxx

It is gorgeous Su :)

Susan said...

I'm sorry that you had issues with a delivery service - it's a shame you had to lose a day's pay because they didn't deliver it on Saturday as they were supposed to.

I love your newest finish. It's so beautiful!

Loralynn said...

What a charming stichery! You have done a lovely job on it!

Su,
It's gorgeous. I love the soft colours and the understated Quaker element. Those sweet little words burst like bubbles all through the design :>)

How annoying to be messed about by what should have been a straightforward arrangement!!
Hugs Angela

Deb said...

That is such a sweet piece! Such soft colors.

Absolutely beautiful! Hope your computer arrives asap.

Cari said...

I am going to have to stop visiting you. Everytime I do, I wind up adding to my "must have" list.

The soft colors are so lovely in this pattern. Your stitching is always beautiful.

Oh, how very frustrating that DHL didn't deliver as promised and then wouldn't let your neighbor sign. I am so sorry that you had to miss a day of work -hopefully you will get lots of stitching done while you wait.

Jane said...

What a delightful SB piece. Love your pictures of it! Cherry Heart is also gorgeous - lovely work.

How disastrous about your computer delivery. Frustrating, very frustrating.

Nancy said...

Another beautiful sampler Su! Congratulations on your finish. I do hope you can share photos of your Mum's real garden some day. It sounds gorgeous.
