Stitching by the river watching the Kingfishers
What a delight and a sure treat.
I am pleased to say that the garden is coming along and I am impatient for things to grow. The climbing rose is going to slowly for my liking .. I long to see it cover the arch over the gate and hang with large white scented roses. I have oodles of patience in stitchery but it seems not so much when I am waiting for plants to establish. Still nature will do her thing, in her own time .. and so I wait!
Being by the River Stour is a blessing, really only a five minute walk to the River bank and on a warmer day it is a delight truly. I pack a little basket with some slow stitching, journal and often a warm drink and sit there sewing and watching the world go by. People watching and always an eager eye open for the odd otter or two. Its peaceful and it is soothing for the soul. It reminded me of this poem:
whilst sitting on the seat by the river. This is the joy of slow stitching, you can take it anywhere with you, it good to go in a basket. As the days get longer and much warmer, lots more of this will happen I can assure you. Sat in the shade of huge trees I will be taking my lunch there on some days.
do some other things... water garden, do a little house work and to sit and watch antique like programs.. so I have let my little office/workroom go wild. Time to sort it me thinks.
