My Latest Offering

I've had the "bestest" Summer ever! I spent the majority of the season at our "Summer Palace," in Clayton, New York. I gardened on a grand scale. I stitched. I tried my hand at a bridal cascade, a head dress, boutonnieres and a Matron of Honor corsage. I even COOKED! Just ask my neighbors! In all, it was a wonderful Summer. I think I'll do it again next year! lol
Here is some of what I accomplished......

Arizona Blanket Flower

Butterfly Flower

I had to trim my Bleeding Heart 3 Times! This is after the second "trim."

This picture doesn't do justice to my Canna Lillies..... They were the prettiest shade of "dusty rose...."

I had Peonies, too! lol

I'll get back to you on my other "exploits" from my Great Summer Adventure later.....

Happy Spring!

Wow! What a beautiful day! The sky is blue, and the grass is ..... well.... not quite green.... My narcissus have begun to poke their heads toward the sky with buds peeking at the sun. I haven't seen hide nor hair of a crocus, though. Methinks that the resident squirrels have done their damage. Ah.... Thoughts of Camp reign!

I took a Road Trip with Michele and her Son, Donnie, to Indianapolis on last Monday. Donnie had an appointment with Lance Armstrong's oncologist at the Indy Cancer Institute. The short of the visit is that things remain "stauts-quo," and if that changes, Dr Einhorn (sp?) will "recall" Donnie post-haste to re-evaluate. So, for now, Don and Michele are headed back to Florida until the end of July. They've only been home twice in the last 11 months. Although I'll miss Shelly, at least I know that she'll be back this Summer. I'm just tickled pink that I could help them out by being the "Driver" for them.

Here's some more stitching..... I completed Permin's Freebie Easter Eggs a couple of weeks ago.... I really need to get it framed! I also finished Quaker Row. That was a fun stitch..... Enjoy!

It's Time!

Okay, I've been "remiss" in posting. So shoot me! I've snuggled and bundled under over 145" of snow to finish some WIP's, and begin a few UFO's. For those who don't stitch, don't ask! For those who DO..... Ya' know!

Here's a sampling.....

The Sampler Girl's "Mrs Lincoln"
From This year's JCS Ornament Issue
From Last Year's JCS Ornament issue
An Old Dimension's Kit
"Fox Run" from The Work Basket

Oh, There's much, much more! Ready?

Ground Hog Day Freebie
I made him into a "Flat Fold"
A mini snowman that was all the rage on my message board
Heart in Hand "Winter" Wee Bird
From La D Da "Back Yard Birds

There's more..... for another day!

There's still plenty of Winter to be had, and snow to fall, so baring disaster, "I'll be baaaaaackkkkkk!"
