still my garden

Just a quick walk before our breakfast this morning to take a picture of some wild flowers.

More and more colour in (yes, still my) garden.


A new house has been found, and now it is all in the hands of the legal profession, which, as anyone buying and selling a house in England knows, can take its time.
And there is the "chain", when one link breaks, the whole thing can fall apart.
Thankfully, our chain is very short, so fingers crossed.......
Yes, I will have "my space" in our new house, be it a lot smaller then I have now. This is where I start to panic, what to keep and what I am not going to miss?

All that house hunting and forms filling left me with little stitching time, so I am still working on the same piece of Scandinavian Rose.

In the meantime more stitching arriving in the post,

and some recent magazines.

I love the quilt on the front of Magic Patch magazine.

I wish you all a relaxing Sunday!

At last, we have summer! The weather has been glorious all this week and is set to continue, at least until the weekend.

It is a wonderful year for apple blossom, there are masses of it everywhere and the local cider makers are very pleased.

I have been neglecting my blog and all of you recently, I do apologise.
 There hasn't been any stitching going on, instead lots cleaning, painting, generally getting ready for this:
Yes, it is time for a change, they call it "downsizing". We say "time for a new challenge".
We have enjoyed our time in the country for nearly 20 years, but now we are ready to move closer to the civilisation; shops, bus stops, library.....and into a smaller house, with a smaller garden
= challenge.
It looks like a buyer for our house has been found and we are now starting to look for a new home,
not an easy task. Moving into a smaller house will mean having to dispose of some our treasured furniture. More to the point, will there be enough space for all my stuff?
There was lots a viewing of houses yesterday, more to do tomorrow. No time to sew...

So, I will at least share with you some pictures from last week's visit to Barrington Court, where DD, grandchildren and I had a lovely picnic.
