Before it became too hot, I dug up a clump of chives from my herb bed earlier in the week and repotted them in fresh compost. D gave them a good haircut and watering. They are now in our garage/utility, which is bright but cool to allow them to settle down. By Friday, they had already started to grow back again. The chopped-off ' chive hair' were used to flavour evening meals and the remainder was frozen in ice cubes for later use.
If you were wondering about the sewing reference in the blog title for today, this is why: I have started a new x stitch picture this week.
Rather, four pictures that pick up a theme to complete the composition. It took ages to find a suitable frame that wasn't too expensive. I could find plenty of frames for three pictures, but I really needed four for this project. Eventually, I found just the right one.
I have marked out where each design will go, so hopefully there won't be any wrongly placed pictures!
Here are the first few stitches. I am going to take my time and enjoy this project and watch as the pictures slowly appear.
Next week I am not going to be online, which is why I'm posting this morning instead of in my usual spot on Sunday evening, but I will be back soon. Wherever you are in the world, thank you for visiting me, and have a wonderful week x
