Firstly 'Stitcher in Residence' by Lizzie*Kate now hanging on the Study door as I do my best to convince my DH that this room will soon be my domain only and completely out of bounds to him (I'll be ruling the world next!!!)

Sitting in my pile of fabric odds and ends was a piece of Moda fabric with a design called 'Bird in the Bowers' by Kathy Schmitz, I love the colours in this so used it as the backing and added a small silk ribbon at the top.
Secondly is 'Happy Bunny Bunny Day' by The Trilogy. I changed everything colourwise with this design as the bunny had to be the same colours as Buttons, after much debate this was agreed to be GAST Cidermill Brown with GAST Walnut for his patches and tail. I'm not sure what to do with the finished piece, I do not have any fabric that matches the colours and it is not a standard size for framing so it may have to hop to the 'I'm Waiting To Be Finished' pile and wait patiently!

Despite a little rain on Saturday the weather has been so good that the Barbecue made its first appearance of the year on Sunday and along with some gardening 'al~fresco' was the deal of the weekend. Our garden is just coming to life again and always looks so good in Spring so here's a quick Tour . . . .
Our house is raised up from the garden so we step out onto a verandah the full width of the house which has two sets of steps going down to the first level of garden which then slopes to a second level. These are views from the verandah . . .
