All I needed to do was to make sure we water our gardens, like so...!
One watering can for you, one watering can for me, and the flowers will keep on blooming.
I love the girls' outfits, don't you?
I love this polka dotted number with the apron, very 'me'.
Stitching this beauty was a challenge, with all the colour changes and the heat wave. I now understand when some of you have said it was too hot to stitch! At 3pm today, I put down my needle and can gaze with satisfaction. I love this piece!
While I stitched this, I listened to The Help by Kathryn Stockett. It is absolutely superb! Please go and get the book to read or listen to. I think I heard about this on Nicole's and Kellie's blog awhile ago. It is such a great story, and is beautifully narrated. While the topic is a difficult one to listen to (at least for me) - about the civil rights struggle in the 1960's in the US - it is such a great story. In the case of the audio book, it was mainly narrated by 3 women and they did such a great job. The story was mesmerizing.
Well, I am so happy that I have had the good fortune to get my hands on the Friendship Sampler (thanks again to my stitching pal) and that it's now finished. While I was "putting out the call" for the chart to the Stitching Universe a few months ago, I had pledged this:
"If I can get hold of this OOP chart, I will do a Travelling Friendship Tour with this chart." So, if you are interested please leave a comment and I'll see what we can arrange!
Lastly, I leave you a funny photo of Mr Julius wanting to "get in the frame" while I was setting up the shot. He moved so fast. Luckily I stopped him before he ran off with it. He has a funny habit of taking things down to his 'lair'. When my mom was visiting, he took one of her shoes (plastic Croc) downstairs and it took us awhile to figure out where it went!
Oh, almost forgot - this is the last thing I promise! Please go and wish Terri a Happy 50th! Her Birthday is Aug 5 and she's also starting a SAL on SB's Sail Away too. I'm sure she would love to get Happy Birthday comments! I've gotten to know Terri a bit since starting my blog - she's such a nice person! Happy 50th, young lady!
I can't hang around my longer. My office is upstairs and I'm melting! Till next time, thank you for visiting and sharing your thoughts. Enjoy the week!
