Christmas In July

My online stitching group had a christmas stocking swap, we all had to make a stocking of our choice and send it to our partners, this is what I received from Lynda, I was a bit spoilt and got more than just a stocking.





Lynda made me the most gorgeous Lollipop made from punch needle. Its so cute.

Thankyou Lynda, I love everything you sent me, including the cross stitch patterns.





This is the stocking I made for Tracy, Its a Bronwyn Hayes pattern.







A few weeks ago my wonderful husband surprised me with a hot house. I love to grow plants from seeds so now I have the perfect spot to do so.









Today I filled up all the seedling trays with seeds, I have poppies, heartsease, delphiniums and swan river daisies. I also replanted some geraniums.











I can see myself spending alot of time in here. Enjoying the piece and quiet.













The iris are the first spring plant to flower in our garden, these are minatures and are very cute.


I did make some time for sewing today, I'll be back tomorrow to share my progress.
