Gardening...

There's been precious little going on that's even remote blogworthy but at the end of September...(so about a month ago and I did think that I'd done a post but seems not)...I did walk up this path...
And through this Red Door...
To spend a wonderful three days with my Monday crafty friends who I rarely get to see now...had the best time...and even managed a bit of a "finish"...
A small garden of hexie flowers...it will finish at about 13 inches square - eventually...a mix of two fat 1/8 packs of Lynette Anderson ranges "Secret Garden" and "Mending Fences" that demanded to be small hexie flowers...

Any other stitchy focus has been on what to make for my SSCS main present...I thought I had it worked out and although I took all the bits back to the flat to start and made a huge mess on the floor I couldn't get it started...Friday night when I came home I hit the bookshelf yet again...and now it seems I was on completely the wrong track...but nothing in the fabric emporium that wanted to play....so, a quick trip into Spotty after work yesterday just before it closed - where certain fabric bolts refused to be ignored - and it seems all systems are now go...thank goodness!...so that will be me for the next month...beavering away on secret stitching...

Happy Stitching...
