All fenced in

Saturday was fine and unseasonally warm for Autumn so the HD3QBEM and I went for a drive to a local park.   One of the City forefathers left a huge tract of land in the central city which is now a working farm but also has walking tracks, gardens, cafes etc etc.   We were content to sit and admire this view.
Then last night while watching Elementary I stitched a fence and part of a tree.   Oh yes, a red bird too.  The top panel of the Sampler Casket is coming along well which is great as I am getting a  little tired of it and longing for a change.   Very soon decisions will have to be made on the lettering/wording and I am still not sure so maybe will leave that for a later date?   So here's a progress shot -  wrinkles and all.
Monday has been a public holiday and was wet and stormy all morning so I was able to curl up with the latest Jacqueline Winspear and shed a tear or two over the tragedies befalling Maisie Dobbs.   Oh, Ms Winspear why do you do this?   Just when it was all romantic and a "happy ever after" was looming you give us so much pathos and grief.
Now I am off to cook dinner and then to hem a top I have made the HD3QBEM for her Mothers' Day gift.   It does feel so good to be early :- )


  1. Lovely view to admire Margaret and neat stitching too. I've not watched Elementary but my son suggested it might be worth a look - are you quite enjoying it?

  2. Your bird is lovely but I think your young man looks a little lonely!
    Either you are VERY early for next March or you celebrate Mother's Day on the same day as the Americans rather than the English?

  3. It's odd to read about autumn when the spring flowers are just now coming out here. I like seeing the progress of this project, but I know what you mean about wanting to work on something different. Sometimes I get too many things going at once, which seems to be the case now.

  4. Your emboridery is growing beautifully. I like the contrast between the two trees.

  5. Your work is done incredible, as always.
