Happy Dancing in many ways

I have a few happy dances to blog today :) only one stitching but the others are just as important.

Firstly DH and I had a fabulous weekend in Wales, with DD and BF but without Ruby which made life very relaxed. Saturday was my first HD as DH and I hired bicycles and did a 10 mile ride - a huge thing for me :) It was along a flat trail on an old disused railway line - for those who read my blog it was along the Mawddach where we've been walking Ruby on our last Welsh trips. We managed about half way and back - it was hard going as the wind was against us on the way; so much easier on the way back. I think we'd do it again and maybe hire bike for a day next time.

Before we went to Wales we finished the garden (although the fences need painting). DH put down all the slate and I now have my pots in place. I'm so pleased with it - and it's somuch easier to maintain and keep Ruby's paws clean (no more digging)

The slate is now under the bench and on the far right with my pots.
All slated with my pots.
and my final HD is I managed to finish my Mum's birthday pressie on time (just). We had a lovely day out today for her birthday and a family meal at the pub. They are off to France tomorrow for a week so it's all a bit busy. Here's the Q by Prairie Schooler finished and framed.

Tomorrow is 1st June so it's TUSAL time again - my jar is certainly filling up this year and we're only five months in. Saying that I am amazed that Needlecraft Haven is 5 months old - where did that go :)

TUSAL 1st June
Have a great June, it's the start of summer :0 thanks for sharing my HDs x x

Good for you on doing a 10 miles bike ride (I couldn't do it). Your patio looks great and your finished stitcing piece is beautiful.
