TUSAL update (late) and a garden for my DFIL...
Finally, I feel like posting again, it is has been a very rough couple of weeks with some very high and some very low emotions.
I have been doing a little stitching, some starts for DSDUSJFC and even a finish or two and I need to post for Gifted Gorgeousness, Halloween and my Smalls SALs but those updates will have to wait another day or two, I feel.
I have taken a picture of my ORTs (just to prove I have been stitching) and I wanted to show you the work I did on the small garden near my front porch in honour of my DFIL. Now, this is quite a big deal for me, because whilst I love a garden and beautiful flowers I am just not a gardener. I have the opposite of a green thumb - a black one! I am good at killing plants, unfortunately!
This month's TUSAL the first of 2015.... Unfortunately, I cannot show 2014's full coffeepot full of ORTs, as when we were getting my DMIL's china coffee pot ready for the funeral yesterday, TraderVic washed them all down the sink! My fault for using her coffee pot as a TUSAL jar last year! lol!
Now for my new garden.Pretty new front door mat:
I bought that lovely green pot just to put this rose in which was gifted to us. I also bought the tin chicken in honour of my DFIL. He used to keep chickens for many years before he moved in with us.
He loved these sorts of plants.
... and isn't this a gorgeous fuschia?
Anyway, that is all from me today, I will try to post some stitching progress pics, next time.
