Happy Easter and Blogaversary

Firstly Happy Easter to all. Especially those who are family visiting or entertaining. I tried my normal swimming yesterday but my shoulder still doesn't like it. I've kept up the walking, did an hour yesterday and 50 mins the morning before and am really suffering today, just a quick walk to the shops. I did get out into the garden and potted on my Tumbling Tom tomatoes, they are showing their first flower buds so I'm quite excited. Pete put some hooks in the garage extension so I can hang my hanging baskets inside. It's too cold yet for bedding plants here on the NE coast. I bought a few more this afternoon, so guess what I'll be doing tomorrow.

Stitching wise The Pins & Needles exhibition went very well and we have our monthly EG meeting tomorrow. I've made one yellow square for our Rainbow Square project. Yellow squaresIt's a 'tree' made of different threads and fibres on dissolvable fabric then the whole thing machine stitched with silk thread.Machine silk embroidered I started another which will be hand quilted. Quilted Daisy 1

Here is a picture of the South West Region Rainbow Squares N2 1
