Stitching, designing and planning my garden in France.
The weather is beautiful today, the sun is shining and I am sat looking out into my garden planning where my roses are going to go, I can't wait to get them planted and watch them bloom over the summer. I had quite a lot of roses in my english garden but here I have lots of space to make a beautiful rose garden with a real selection of my favourite roses.
Here are just a few of the roses I grew in England, I am hoping these varieties will flourish in France as they really are my favourite.
I have been doing some cross stitch designing this week, a Valentine freebie and a new chalk board design called Time For Tea, apparently chalkboard cross stitch is the new craze at the moment, it is basically cross stitch on black fabric so I decided to put a little design together, more of that later.
Here is my latest freebie to stitch in time for Valentine's Day, Mini Cat meets Miss Mini and falls in love! Lol....
I thought I would make two versions to celebrate my move to France, one in English and the other in French, you can get both patterns from my freebie page here
