I know, I'm faint with astonishment - two posts in one day! Well, the first one didn't really count!
Progress on Friendship Sampler! It felt like I was in quicksand for awhile as (1) BOAF designs usually have lots of colour changes so it was slow going, and (2) I was feeling poorly last week. Not sure why - summer bug? Fortunately by Friday, I was feeling better.
As I'd said the top border seemed to take forever last week but now I seem to be getting more the hang of it. You know, sometimes, it just takes awhile to 'get into' a project. Now I am really enjoying the colours! Speaking of colours, here are some I brought in from the garden.
See the Japanese Maple tree in the photo above? DH raised it from a seedling. What's amazing is that it's over 10 years old, and (unintentionally) this was left in a small pot for many years. Look at the little amount of soil compared to the its height! No wonder people make those into Bonsai trees! DH was re-potting a few of these today and we were amazed these (there are about 8 pots) have survived all these years with so much neglect!
Here is a photo of Mr Julius lying on one of DH's shirts. One of the things this crazy cat likes to do is to pull off any clothes he sees lying around (eg hanging on back of a chair) and wrestling it down into submission, and lying on top like a conquerer! Look at that face - can't get mad at him, can you?
Well, my friends, gotta run. I thank you so much for taking the time to visit, and leaving me comments. I don't always get to reply to you but I really enjoy knowing that you've been here, and what you think of the post, and sharing what's happening in your world.
Take care and have a wonderful week!
