Catch up part two

Hello my friends,
time for another visit with me.
We were having an over flow problem when it rained with water running off the roof
so since we are now on part mains supply Hubby put up a smaller tank  and used the large one to take over flow. This water is used for the garden.
He worked on this while on a holiday break.   

Also he went fishing and caught these two.
It was fish for tea.

This years `Mystery` from `The Country Yard`.
is using `Cottage Garden Thread` 1001 Red Carnation.
It is stitching up lovely.

Month one. I seem to be keeping up.

Month two

Month three.
 Month four came the other day but forgot to take a photo!

Our grandson turned five this week and started school.
This lovely cake was made by my Son-in laws sister.
What an amazing creation. Yummy cake .

He was Spiderman for the day. Time to unwrap some gifts.

LHN  Little Sheep Virtue, these three are on display. 
 I`ve finished stitching `Courage` but still  sorting what felt to finish that one.
 I`ve started to stitch `Faith` so may finish those two together. 
I`m enjoying stitching these.
Well I need to get going so will catch up again soon. 
Thankyou for the visit.
Happy Stitching,
