No matter what…

The sun came out from hiding yesterday so I took advantage of it and went outside to take some photo’s of my latest finish and another UFO to cross off the list…

I am really pleased with how it’s turned out…

The fabrics were from a pack of 1/8’s I bought from Grandmothers Garden several years ago…

A few post ago I mentioned that I had claimed an old rusty tool box from my DH, it was used to store tools for fencing and stuff but I think I have put it too much better use;o)…

Last weekend I bought the trellis and DH attached it for me, it’s given the old woodshed a whole new look! At the moment the box is filled with daffodils for a lovely spring display until I decide what I want to grow up the trellis, a rose? or a geranium?, perhaps a clematis? Decisions decisions…

Your wallhanging is beautiful Michelle! I love the planter box, we used to have one like that and we kept all the halters and leads etc for the cattle for the A & P shows in it. I think yours will look much brighter in spring than ours did - the daffodils will be so pretty!

Love your wallhanging Michelle, it looks fabulous. What a great idea for your daffodil bulbs. What about a smelly runner like a honeysuckle or jasmine??

Stitching looks fab Michelle,the colours look great! What about sweetpeas to grow up your shed, they will love the heat from the iron!
Happy stitching, Michelle.

I loved seeing your wallhanging - the stitching is so pretty. What a perfect place to plant a climber - I would probably plant a rose or a clematis, but really any flowers growing there would look lovely!
Have a great week ahead.
