SweetHeart - Shepherds Bush


I couldn't remember if I showed you all this, and I don't think I did, I finished it earlier this year, in fact just before Valentines Day.
I've stitched it on 40ct fabric - colour was alabaster and I played around slightly with the colours and finished it with a tiny green button and some antique french lace I had in my stash, which my sister had given me a while ago from her trip to France. I also added a small MoP heart button at the top where the ribbon  starts.



I hope that you all have a really great weekend, its supposed to be hot and sunny here this weekend and I have plans to go out into the garden and do some weeding, cos after the rain we have had this week and the warm sun, the weeds have taken off, as has my grass so that needs cutting too, so a little work to do there Plus I want to finish painting my fence - one side of the garden is done and not the other so it looks a little odd.  I also want to get up to the allotment and weed my onions, if I remember to take my camera with me I'll take some pics of their early progress, I was talking to the club chairman the other day and he reckons that I really stand a really really good chance this year to win as they are really lovely onions, but I won't hold my breathe yet - just in case something disastrous happens LOL! Its a long time til the show in September.

This is really so sweet, Su! I love the lace edging and added buttons. Very pretty!

Sounds like you're in for a busy weekend. Have fun in your garden with that gorgeous weather you're getting. It's quite cold where I am, Winter has set in. Not so many chances to be out in the garden though if the sun comes out, I will try to do some pruning. Have a lovely weekend!

A very sweet finish Su. Good luck with your onions! I'm a horrible gardner so I never plan anything, but I'm sure that it's wonderful to be able to grow your own things.
