The other morning I was out in the garden and way
up high in this tree were these sunflowers. I couldn't figure out
how in the world they got up there but as I walked closer I saw
that this volunteer sunflower had grown up on the other side
of the fence, in the shade of this tree and it had to grow this tall to
get to the sun. I thought it looked pretty and it told me, " That is why
you never, never give up. " Somewhere up there is the sun.
I haven't had much time to sew lately. Most of my time is spent
gardening, or cleaning or taking care of something. In the evenings
I have been watching, my favorite show. It is on the History Channel
and it is called Swamp People. I can't sew and watch T.V. so that is why
I haven't sewed much. It is a little like walking and chewing gum, I can't do
that too good either. :)
I did get this finished but as you can see I haven't made it
into anything yet. I got this as a freebie from Betty
I will show a picture of my rug. I started it in wool rug hooking,
and I didn't like it so I ripped it all out and started using the punch needle
on it. Not happy about how it looks either but I will stick it out just and finish
it. I found that I don't have enough skill yet to get the look like I want.
Kim this picture is for you. :)
This stitchery is called Olga by Plum Street Samplers.
This is my other project I am in the process of working on,
I have done a little but not much. I just need to sit and get busy
on it, I love doing it, I just haven't had time to sit and get it done.
I told you I would be baking pies out of that book. I did I made the
Chocolate Banana cream, and it was good. But I would make my own
pudding next time. No pictures again, as it was gone. I am going to stop
making pies for awhile. My jeans are getting tight so no more goodies.
Oh I thought I would show you the picture of what this cat is supposed to look
like. It really is cute.
I hope you have a great weekend.
My youngest son will be 16. I am very thankful
that I have one teenager left. Weird feeling to not have more.
Some people dread the teenage years, I have enjoyed all six
and if I had a favorite age I would be hard pressed but I would
say, right now in my life, this is my favorite age.
Have a lovely weekend,
