Gosh, am I suprised at the amount of peas we have had so far this year. This is just a very small amount (half the peas ended in my tummy as I was podding them!) Last year we made some pea pod wine (put in the bottles in January) so here's hoping that it is soon ready to drink, and if indeed, it's drinkable! This lot were grown in the poly tunnel, starting off in winter. Last year when I grew them outside, they weren't ripe until late summer. So nice to have an early crop for a change.
I did manage to finish off my 'Sunshine Sampler'. I was just going to photo it in the frame and the batteries ran out.
The saying says 'Walk on the sunny side of the street' and each little embroidery has a sun to brighten the day.
These are all hand embroidered with tiny bits of material (see, never throw anything away haha) Some of the trees are felt others are embroidered and yet others are fabric. Do you like the teeny tiny robin sitting on the fork in the veggie garden?
Each square took an evening to do although some were a bit quicker than others. The background fabric is linen. It has a red frame all ready and waiting.But I have a confession, what did I do....yep, measured once and cut once!! So its a wee bit short on the frame, but only by a couple of centimeters, although still very annoying and I have already mentally kicked myself very hard!
