Good start to June

We were at the caravan for the start of June and what beautiful weather we had too. We did some good walks with Ruby but I did manage a little stitching as well.

I finished this coaster - I've stitched it many times but I love this saying and the colours are so delicate.

and I finished a few more key rings - I had to buy a bigger size as Sew and So have stopped selling the square ones. I stitched over one and am really pleased with the finishes.

Friday 31st May was my Mum's birthday and we had a trip out to Hatton Country World - a great place and we were lucky enough to see the peacock in full glory - I've written about our trip to Wales in my lifestyle blog Aimetu's

Hatton Country World's magestic peacock
I will be very very late with this month's Drawn Thread calendar piece as I must get the other gifts finished and I have the Needlecraft Haven Bookmark Exchange to stitch by the end of June. In fact it may be I do June and July's after I finish work as I have so many meals, school show, theatre trips and other things going on.

I hope everyone is enjoying this glorious sun we have at the moment - thanks for calling by :-)


  1. You've had such great finishes lately. Well done!

    Love peacocks and their showing off to the lady birds.

  2. Lovely finishes. Great picture of the peacock.

  3. Great stitching Clare, and well done on getting the peacock to pose for you, in my experience they seem to be very good at turning away from the camera at the wrong moment

  4. Great pic of the peacock in all his splendour.
    Super stitchy gifts.

  5. You sure have been busy, Clare--everything looks great. Aren't peacocks just stunning when they're fully open?! They do put on quite a show!
