Finally LHN's Acorn Hill is finished! I actually started this whilst on holiday back in October 2008 but only stitched on it a bit here and there. A couple of weeks back I decided that it was time to get on with it and I finished it off last Thursday. It's stitched on 28ct beige Quaker linen using the recommended Crescent Colour threads.
While waiting for a thread to arrive in order to finish Acorn Hill I couldn't resist another start. It's Blackbird Design's "When This You See" from their "Remember Me" series. I've had the chart a few years and have been gradually collecting the threads for it. Although I still have a few to get I had enough to make a start on it. It's not really worth a photo yet so I'll leave that until next week.
I'll leave you now though with a couple of photos of peonies from our garden. We picked the first ones on Sunday so a couple of the blooms are starting to go over now. The ones in the second photo I picked yesterday. The white peony used to belong to my late father-in-law and we have had it for quite a long time now. The bush has produced an absolute mass of flowers this year but did get flattened a bit in heavy rain a couple of weeks ago. The deep pink peony is one we bought from Bridgemere garden centre and has taken a few years to establish so it was great to be able to pick a couple of blooms from it.
Many thanks for visiting my blog and for all the lovely comments that you leave.
