Helen is choosing a new cover photo each week for the Secret Garden Facebook Group
First up was Ruth’s. Helen particularly enjoyed how the butterfly blocks were laid out with the butterfly mobile.
Tracey’s photo is this weeks cover image, showing her mini gardens in her own sunny garden. This has certainly been warming us Brit’s up.

What do we do with all our ends?
Here are just a few suggestions that have appeared on the group;
Helen from Swansea shared a link to maRRose – Colourful Crochet & Crafts for a yarn bowl that has been sculpted using all the ends that she had saved up from her crochet projects. I love this idea and I hope to do something like this with my ends. If you’ve done something similar why not share your photo’s with us.
Our Helen (Rainbow Valley) saves all her ends and gives them to a couple of her students. Why? Because they breed canaries and they use the ends for making nests. That’s such a sweet idea.
I have heard from one of my students in the past would leave her ends hanging from a bush in her garden for the sparrows to use when they are nesting. She would also supply them with the fur that her dogs & cats had shed.
There are now more than 500 participants making the Secret Garden CAL and naturally not everyone is using the same yarn brands, so there are some beautiful colour and texture differences.
But the most creative change has been from Tracey who has chosen to do the crab stitch round of the big flower in one of the colours from the centre.
