I have been stitching forever it seems and now do this just for pleasure,My DH and I are retired so I have lots of time for my hobbies--sewing Gardening and walking my dog. Have 4 grand-kids aged from 18 to 11 One lives in Australia and the others are very close to where we live.
Hope to contribute more thru this blog.
Kia-ora and welcome to my blog for the year of the dozen 2012.
To start this year I will show you one of my other loves --my Garden.
I love to puddle around in my garden -- dusting --flowers are welcome weeds are not!!!
I can not walk past the garden without touching or picking or pruning --
I have a constant companion with me Blaze a Blue Roan English Cocker Spaniel
