A stitching Sunday

Today was such a beautiful day, after lunch I sat out in the garden with my stitching and enjoyed the sunshine. I was also entertained by 2 of my boys who decided to have a water balloon fight.It was funny watching them run around the yard chasing each other, trying not to be the one who got wet.


I worked on my Vignette stitching. I decided I didn't really like the fabrics I had chosen to do the first block so I started again using flower sugar. Luckily I hadn't done a real lot. I have to say I'm much happier now with it all.




This morning I sewed the top row and part of the side.






This is part of the top row, it looks so pretty, the photo doesn't really do it justice.









I just had to share some pretty daisies from our garden, they really do cheer me up.


I hope you found some sewing time today.
