I was tickled to read the comments on my last post about the flower/weed in my garden, i knew that you ladies would come up trumps :-) I'm greatful to those who told me that it is an Aquilegia or a Columbine, depending on where you live (I think). Cath let me know that it is also known as Grandmother's Bonnet, how sweet is that! The flower does remind you of a frilly bonnet when you look close. Thanks for the advice on the plant too Cath :-)
Katherine also let me know that it is the state flower of Colorado. So now i'm just going to let it flourish, how could i possible get rid of something with such a pretty name and a one that has a title too!
My eldest daughter had her 20 week scan on Monday, I'm glad to report that all is progressing nicely. Apparently this scan is known as the gender scan, apart from checking that everything is as it should be, they were also asked if they wanted to know what it was. They were both agreed that they didn't want to know what it was before the birth, Jenny's answer to anyone who asks what she's having is, "it's a baby" !
She will most likely want to kill me for sharing this photo!
I do have a stitching finish to share this time too (about time I hear you say!)
Can you guess what it is?
It's Dandy Dreams by Silver Creek Samplers
I enjoyed stitching this so much,
once I started I couldn't put it down
Mark, at the stitching shop did a lovely job with the framing again, he even customised this frame for me, he painted the frame to match the green thread i used and distressed it.
Here it is a little closer
This one will have a place in the guest bedroom,
(which should be finished next week)
The Give Away
Since I enjoyed this one so much I thought someone else might like the Dandy Dreams chart :-)
If you would like your name entered in the draw please say so in the comments only, (not by email), and I will draw a name next Wednesday evening, June 6th.
Oh, and it will be open to anyone, home or overseas :-)
Until next time...
