Moon Garden


Moon Garden by Blackbird Designs
Stitched on 30ct 18th Century Rook by R&R Reproductions with recommended GAST threads


Moon Garden is finished - the missing thread came this week and it just took a couple of evenings to finish it off. I love it. Such pretty colours.


Lulu isn't so impressed. Here she is sulking because I wouldn't let her sleep on it!


Thank you for all the allotment suggestions and well wishes. We're waiting for the paperwork to be completed so we haven't been back yet but I will take some photos if I remember when we're up there next. In the meantime, here's my little veggie patch at the end of the garden...


It's been a gorgeous week so I had a couple of days digging and clearing and repotting in the garden. And I eventually got round to sowing some broad beans and garlic (the netting is to deter the cats from using my nicely dug earth as a toilet!) The growing season is underway...

  23. Congrats on the finish! So quick too. And looks like Lulu and Macros have a lot in common, right down to the sulking :)

    The garden is looking great and what great timing. The rain this weekend should help the newly repotted to hold quite nicely. Looking forward to seeing more.

  31. Hi Nicki, Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love your stitching - especially Moon Garden, aren't BBD's beautiful. An allotment sounds exciting - I love working in my vege garden, however things are getting to the end of the season - it's getting very chilly down in the Deep South. Can't wait to see how your garden grows!

    I've been itching to get somethings sown/planted but weather's been terrible, snow the other day! Looking forward to seeing some photos of plot :)
