Gifted Gorgeousness August

Oh I'm late - and I only have one piece to share. I've been very busy in the garden and with stitching the Needlecraft Haven Spring Meet Up Exchange gift which I will be able to share soon.

August seems to be very un-summer like and with us having a few nice days I have been busy gardening - a little revamping which I need to get on with again today :) I don't know where the time goes, both the hours each day and the days each week - I am very behind with blog reading and posting, book reading, stitching and life in general - must be my age !!

Gifted Gorgeousness is a great SAL hosted by the lovely Jo (who seems to fit so much into her time) - thanks Jo for your hard work in blog land, it is really appreciated. This month I have a little update on my Herb Garden which is a gift for a friend who is retiring soon. It's a Drawn Thread design and I've converted the threads to DMC.

work in progress on my Herb Garden
I hope everyone is having a great summer (even on the wet days) thanks for calling by :)

Beautiful work, Clare. Wish I could get my Daisy stitches so neat looking.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Thanks for taking part in GG this month, and thanks for the compliments too!

The Drawn Thread design is so beautiful, a great gift for a lucky someone.

Hello Clare,

I think I am afflicted with the same thing as you, things keep happening like gardening etc. Love the project your are working on.

Happy days.

Gorgeous design - it will make a really lovely gift!
I don't know where the hours go... they just disappear don't they? I never seem to get things done anymore, so a finish these days is a super duper happy dance!!
Hugs xx
