Time to stitch

 It has been a very busy few months: we are working hard renovating our house ready for sale, busy with family and friends and lots of medical appointments and tests.

Well the health issues are sorted, the house is coming on well and other responsibilities are settling down too.

I have found it difficult to make time to create and even harder to blog but here I am.

You can see I have been doing some free machine stitching using scraps of fabric and  threads between two sheets of water soluble film.  I added some lace as well and then rinsed it leaving it a little sticky.

I wanted to make a candle holder (for led candle) so I wrapped it around a bottle and left it overnight to dry.

I am quite pleased with the results so far.

Bugs and roses

 Today Ally (my granddaughter) and I went to the Mornington Botanical Rose Gardens for a bit of photo therapy.  

We have had a lot of rain and cold weather lately and a lot of the roses are showing signs of damage.  


There are also plenty of bugs around.

The  roses are still beautiful though.

We are really lucky to have these gardens so close to our home.
