A lovely weekend

Why do the weekends always go so fast, I guess we try to fit in as much as we can. I know I do, I had to work yesterday morning so while I was away my husband built this bird house to put in our garden, I think it looks lovely and hopefully it will attract some birds. Today was such a lovely day I sat outside and did my stitching, I worked on my Down in the garden block,

I even had a cushion so I could be comfortable. It was lovely listening to the birds and the water trickling in the fish pond.


For dinner tonight I tried a new recipe, we had salmon fried rice, my boys gave it a 7 out of 10, I thought it was definately a 10. lol. I've never met such fussy eaters as my lot.


I also baked savoury muffins, these are Bacon, cheese and spinach and they are yummy. I hope you had a lovely weekend to.

I adore your Down in the Garden blocks. What fabric line are you using? It is perfect. I sure wish I had such a beautiful spot to stitch in.
