A little of this...

...and a little of that.

A little stitching on Shores (I'm loving this block - the house is such fun to do).

A little pampering of seedlings (tomatoes, courgettes/zucchini, peas, a pepper/capsicum, nasturtiums and squash indoors with more peas, cabbage, broad beans, runner beans and French beans braving the weather outside).

And a little new start...

Not so new now actually. This is Evergreen by Blackbird Designs and I started it about a week ago.

Life is not too shabby right now. The gas leak is fixed, work is coming in but at a good pace, the allotment is half dug, my seeds are growing and the weather might actually warm up by the weekend.

    Love your Evergreen start - I really enjoyed stitching this one :)

    Your seedlings are coming on well - one day we might get brave enough to do more than salad from seed ;) Did you see the pics of our spuds on my blog? Ours are doing great - how are yours doing?

  2. Nice to hear that things are going so well in your corner of the woods. Love the new start--are you using the recommended threads?

  3. Your Shores is coming along well Nicki. I'm enjoying this block too. The house seems to stitch up quite quickly.

    Love your new start on Evergreen. Love the colours in this piece.

  4. Great progress on Shores (I really enjoyed this block too), and lovely start. Glad that things are looking brighter for you.

  5. Your life seems to be very happy at the moment - a great new stitching project, wonderful gardening adventures and good progress on a beautiful WIP. Sounds perfect to me.

  6. Fantastic progress, Nicki, on Shores, and I love your new start! I'm glad to hear things are going well in your corner of the world. :)

  7. Nice progress on Shores and great start on Evergreen. Nice selection of vegetables you have.

  8. I love your progress on Shores...I too have it in my basket....need to get it back out~~ Good job, Faye

  9. Your Shores is looking fabulous. I love Evergreen - it's one of my favorites. Maybe I should go out and see if I can find the pattern. Love it!!
