Curious cat

This is something I started last summer on holiday, a cross-stitched cat. I want to make a pillow out of it, when finished.
And of course, the minute I'm gone, there is Pooh, inspecting what I'm doing!

The funny thing is, she looks a lot like the embroidered cat...

My May garden always overwhelming me a bit. Everything is growing so fast, especially all the different weeds!
I try to keep up the work around the house, but yesterday, I went into the wood behind our house with some visitors and their kids, and to be honest, I was a bit shocked. There were parts where you couldn't come, because of the abundance of young trees and bramble bushes... quite a jungle!
I will take pictures, but not for now...
This is the more civilised part of the garden:

And the irises around the pond look great:

And I found the time to make this cross stitch patch, to mend a kitchen towel. Ah, if only a day counted 48 hours!

Sheep around the world

The moment I saw this blogpost on "Flutterby Patch", Eli's lovely blog, I couldn't resist making a woolly lamb myself.
What a funny and cute idea! I hope a lot of bloggers will do the same.

I called her Daisy, and she's already feeling very comfortable in my garden.

Flowers & foliage

Our garden is bursting with life and colour the last weeks. It changes so quickly now , and I love to walk around in it and see something new every day.
