buttonhole wheel cup

this week Sharon had us stitching the buttonhole wheel cup for the week 43. I have done two pieces, the first is the sample piece I usually to see if I can stitch the stitch


as you can see there are quite a few of the stitches here but please do not ask me to name them all.




Here is my second attempt, a small pot plant, the pot has been used on another tast and you will probably see it appearing again for another stitch


Now for a few photos of things in the garden . Some of my plants are confuse, rather like me really and seem to think it is spring,  not sure why as we had a few snow flurries yesterday.


yes they really are flowers in october.

 this magnolia also is confused, have since had another flower but no sign of any more buds.


Some trees have realised autumn has come, beautiful colours here.


not sure what this is and hold my hands up it is not in my garden but next door,they keep chickens and  think the chicken manure has done this a lot of good.

 Thus is my rehder tree, has autumnal coloured leaves in the spring along with tiny very pale pink flowers and then the leaves go green only to revert to autumnal now.

 This one I took on wednesday, I was at the hospital with Helen my younger daughter, she has chrons disease, out of control at the moment so had 4 injections in her tummy on wednesday at a cost of £1600 to the good old NHS, will have to have one injection a fortnight in future which she will administer herself, fingers and toes crossed they will help her along with a very large dose of prayer.Once again I am not sure what tree it is, maybe one of you bloggers can tell me.
Think that will do for now.  As I think I mentioned in my last blog I like to thank you all for your comments but when there is no email address I cannot, please do not think I am ignoring you.

Nice cups you've created, Margaret1 I think a lot of the plants are confused.....I still have groundcover roses blooming! And we've had frost, too. Of course, a few pansies are in flower, but I had 2 clematis blooms last week, and it's a spring-flowering one. Ah, well, I'm enjoying the flowers. Your little pot looks so cute.

Very nice stitching on your CQ and in the flower pot. Nice to still have flowers blooming in October! Lucky you! Very sorry to hear about your daughter. I know a couple of people that suffer off and on with Crohn's. Hope she'll recover soon. Have a lovely Sunday.

I think your cq sampler is nice. I love the Italian Border stitches as well as the cups. The planter button is perfect for the sweet flowers that grow in it!
I am the wrong person to ask about trees, but I know that nature is out of tune and things blossom at unusual times of the year.
Thank God for NHS, you're fortunate not to have to pay hefty medical bills like that yourself. I am very sorry to hear about your daughters medical problems but hope she will manage the future injections.

Lovely bunch of flowers. The "half" one in the middle intrigues me, how did you do that?

The flower pot is so lovely, Margaret! Sometimes nature also seems to be crazy.
So sorry for your daughter, hope she will be okay soon!

Good to see you stitching on your crazy patch pieces margaret. Your garden looks lovely with the colourful trees...the weather is strange down here in Oz too.

Hope the injections have the right outcome for your daughter. That is not a pleasant disease to have.

I love the little potted plant it looks lovely. You have taken some lovely tree pictures the colours are lovely at this time of year. I hope that your daughter is ok, my brother suffers from the same thing, he had an operation last year and is now doing much better.

Hi, thank you so much for your support on my blog. I hope your daughter gets the chrons under control soon. Love the little flower pot! Ada :)

Sorry to hear about your daughter`s disease.` Let´s hope that they get it undr control. I commented already elsewhere on your lovely flower pot. Your trees are beautiful. Never mind what kind they re. We have one in our new garden and don´t know what it is.I did not take a leaf with me to our basis camp in Germany so I cannot search in internet. Otherwise you can find easily via google "trees" and their names.
