We have 3 frangipanis here at our home, we have had them for several years and this is the first year they have flowered how perfect are these..

Yesterday I received in the post these beautiful hand dyed threads by Pam SpurwayCottage Garden Threads…. I purchased these from Needleye , fantastic service thanks Katie…and my fingers are itching to stitch something with these…

On the weekend I was able to do a bit of work turning my stitchery into a bag, just a bit of hand sewing and it will be finished…show and tell tomorrow…

Have a great day…take care Peg….:>)
