Well...hubbie's jumper is finished so I can go on to knitting my own cardigan
By the way...I decided on the red coloured wool.
I think because I liked it when I saw it on the front of the pattern
I also want to start on some tapestry now that it's lighter in the evening and I can put my frame in the garden room!
I bought the tapestry of the sunflowers
because it reminded me of a course that I went on in one of the colleges in Oxford.
When we had time off a couple of us went to the botanic gardens there
and I have never seen such an abundance of different sunflowers!
They were tall..and short
yellow and brown and all sorts of other shades!
I didn't take a picture of the sunflowers to show you
I can show you a picture of me in front of another border!
The tapestry of the sunflowers I finished last year and got my husband to make me a frame
for a firescreen. The frame is made from the wood of trees grown on our farm!
He is cross with me as he says I gave him the wrong measurements......
Whether I did...or didn't is not the issue
(actually I didn't!)
But I think it would not have looked right in a frame that just fit the tapestry!
Anyway...I leave it to you to judge!
and...yes...I know that it's a bit off square
(first thing I saw)
but the man who framed it did it as a favour and I just couldn't complain....
when I saw it straight away...
...and he was looking at it so proudly!
I know...I was a pussy cat and, normally, I would have asked for it to be done properly!
I also did a long stitch tapestry of poppies (as a bit of quick relief) for a friend who loves poppies
I have several canvases that I have bought over the years....
and am not quite sure which one to start on.
I have to say I do prefer trammed tapestries as they seem more hardwearing and, also,
it can be easier knowing which colour is which!
I will look a few out these next few days and make my mind up....
As a follow up to my story on the rabbits............
Guess what I saw on the front lawn today??
Yes I think you could be right.....
Lets just take another look
Yes...definitely...it's them again!!
just to finish.......
I met a friend for coffee after I finished physio on Saturday
and couldn't believe my eyes
