A Serendipitous Summer Postcard Blog Hop

I am the third person in the Summer Postcard Blog Hop that Jo organised.  As you may know, she organises Blog Hops on a regular basis, with her Advent Calendar being my favourite of them all (sign me up Jo!)

For this one, we needed to send Jo a photo of some stitching and a photo of our garden and why we like it, what it means to us etc.

I received my postcard from Michelle who blogs at Michelle's Stitchcraft Place.  She sent me this...


On her postcard, she wrote...
I have attached some photos of my garden and a cross stitch design I am going to treat myself to as it reminds me of when I stitch in South Africa with Ma,  Analene who is our friend and myself.   Analene's garden looks very similar to this design and the place we sit and stitch looks the same!

Here is a link to the previous postcards that have been sent so far.
From Marcy to Gracie
From Krista to JoCondine

Thank you Jo for organising this! xx

Lovely gardens! I'm not a gardener but I do like sitting in a nice one.

What lovely gardens. I, too, am not a gardener, but I love them and appreciate the work and attention that goes into nurturing them.

So great idea had Michelle to stitch a lovely design which reminds her warm memories too. xxx

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Thanks for taking part. Don't panic, your name is down for the Advent Calendar!

Michelle's garden looks very neat and tidy, she can relax and stitch without worrying about mowing the lawn LOL

I love Jo's blog hops a lot. Always a chance to get to know new to me blogs.
Such a lovely postcard from Michelle. I do love this huge garden, a wonderful place to sit and stitch or read.
