Our front fence is a picket fence and there is an arch over the front gate. We have white roses along the front and white jasmine over the arch and a little way along the fence. I have been dreaming of pale pink climbing roses out there. Cream and pink would be glorious I think! Unfortunately nothing is flowering in this photo but you get the idea...
I found these climbing roses in pale pink and quite big too at a great price, I got two. So I am planting them today...
I have a mish mash of things going on. Almost finished the giant card making session with about sixty cards made. And my dear friend Kaye sent me a gift of packets of the new 70c stamps. Floral ones no less. I am so thrilled with them, letter writing here I come!
These are the last ones, the colour scheme is for someone I have in mind that I think loves lilac and cream. (which I love also)
After Bunnings on I went to the nursing home. It is a nice drive past lakes which were all bright blue due to the beautiful day. The ladies were waiting for me! (No pressure lol)
I gave Kath the pink rug I had made. You would think I had given her a car. Truly she was overwhelmed. I don't think she has had too much in the way of spoiling in her life and not recently for sure. Each week she writes me a letter. Andy had called on her in the morning and so she knew I was coming and saved the letter to give me herself. She remembers everything and writes a nice letter. She is knitting too albeit at a glacial pace. :)
It was really lovely and the fact she is so fond of us so soon and loves to see us so much is hard to describe but older ladies have played a big part in my life and I am really grateful to have her care for us and pray for us as she does. It is funny how life works sometimes....
I am about to finish a second rug which I will give to Wilma, a few days to go on that. And meanwhile I am learning a new stitch to do a really big blanket for our bed. I have attempted to learn two new stitched on you tube. One I can "get" and it looks complicated, is formed over three rows, but is really quite easy and if I write it down I'll be right. The other I was ready to put the needle in my eye after two rows so I have filed that for later when I am maybe better at complicated patterns!
I have place mats and a tabe runner I am working on from my left over hessian and a house to clean, washing to do and so on!
Everyone gets like this sometimes I think (hope) I need to finish off a few things and tidy them up!
Have a beautiful weekend, I hope the weather is this nice where you are xxxx
