I finished the "Wedding Row" and I must say that it was one of the most enjoyable stitches yet. The wedding, as you can see, in June 7th. I had the framer add a pocket on the back of the framed piece so I could insert one of the wedding invitations in it. Just a little added touch. Here it is! The
letters are actually a very pretty deep sage green color. A total of 26 hours to complete.
Here's another picture of the piece I'm working on now. Loving this and it will become a pillow top once finished. Have 11 hours into it so far.
I have completed all of the granny squares for my afghan and now I just need to decide in what order I want to put them together and sew them up. I just started lining them up on the bed the other night,
and.......... So I didn't get far and didn't want to scoot her away. I'll get to it again.
We finally have a pair of bluebirds nesting in one of the boxes, and they're out there every morning, gathering mostly pine spills and bringing them inside for the nest. I'm waiting to see if they're going to finish it with some moss. Has to be soft for future babies.
Enjoying all our summer flowers. I love this Rose of Shannon. Just a small shrub right now, but
is loaded with buds! The color is so pretty. I also picked up a few more things to put in yesterday. I have no will power at all sometimes! Here's what I picked up and I have to finish putting them in tomorrow.
I mentioned that I was going to have a new kitchen floor put down, and it's all finished. I love it and it seems to look even better with everything back in place.
Oh! One last thing! Below is the very first stage of all the beautiful stages that the flowers go through on the clerodendrum trichotomum tree that I have. I call it a peanut butter tree. I was given two of them two years ago, and I just love them. They will spread also which is really cool. Here's stage one.
Now I really must let ya'll go. This blog seems kind of choppy to me, but I just had so much to tell and all. Thank you my dear followers for stopping in once again. I love each and every one of you. Until next time......be well and safe and remember to "feel the colors"
