Oldie for Fffriday and Ally Pally tomorrow!

Hello Everyone and thank you for visiting. I love that you come along and if you have time to leave a comment I appreciate it. 
Thank you for your lovely comments on my previous post. I thoroughly enjoyed having a go at this craft. Form A Line still make the patterns that I used. 
Today's oldie inspired by Erika. is the second of four that I made for my SIL as a Christmas present. So now we're up to Spring. It was inspired by the late great Jo Verso. I've adapted it to fit with their garden. The shed, greenhouse, their looks and clothes all reflect what happens in their garden, even down to having two bird tables. I framed them all and she had them in her kitchen. They have just re modelled their kitchen so I am now going to re-mount them for the new frames she has chosen.
Today a friend and her mum are visiting to craft - Perfect and tomorrow I'm off to Ally Pally - more Perfect! Is anybody going tomorrow? I'd love to meet up and say "hello" in person. Have a great week end whatever you're up to and see you Tuesday


  1. Got to love Jo Verso books, another great gardening cross stitch. I'm sure your SIL loved all the work you put into them.
    Thanks for sharing an oldie with me this weekend, have a good one, hugs Erika. x
