I did myself a favour yesterday and turned OFF the internet so no facebook, bloglovin, Pinterest, words with friends or Mahjong to distract me and concentrated on doing something productive.
In doing so I planted (and by planted I actually mean stitched) some roses in my Edwardian House garden.
Just for fun, I thought I would show the back of the piece. Not so pretty now, is it?
I am happy to report that after dinner last night, I picked up the stitchery again and "planted" some hollyhocks and primulas. Just got a few poppies and some ivy to go now then my garden will be complete.
Oh Cath they are beautiful roses. LOL I thought you had planted real roses when I read the title of your post! LOL The stitching is wonderful .... front AND back. Isn't it nice just to turn off the internet once in a while? It is so easy to get sucked into all the wonderful sites that the internet offers but it sure takes up the time! Have a wonderful day.ReplyDelete
Very pretty indeed...although at first I thought you meant the real roses.:) Your stitching is so neat and tidy. I have to do that as well because if I ever get on pintrest I am there for a long time without even realizing it.ReplyDelete

Very nice! It can sometimes be a challenge to find a happy medium with spending time on-line and using our time to make the things we want to create! I think we all need a clone.ReplyDelete
