I made a good start on The Lace Garden

The colour of the fabric in the photograph is misleading as it is actually white not cream. I find Hardanger stitches very therapeutic to sew but the cutting is nerve racking. I am looking forward to working on this again later today.
Here is a photograph of my sewing etui which I like to use in December as it is also a Christmas decoration

Inside I can store needles, pins, scissors, ruler and the matching biscorno.

The sun has come out today and after a few days of rain and strong winds it has been lovely to open the windows and enjoy the fresh air.
I had a wander around the garden today and spotted some orange toadstools
We made two wood piles in the garden this summer so that we could create some homes for insects and small wildlife. These are providing food, warmth and shelter. I am hoping that the pond wood pile will provide a snug place for frogs and toads to hibernate.
We get great pleasure from feeding and watching the birds in our garden and the insects will provide them with food.
