I was so pleased with all the comments you left for me - thank you! One of the reasons why I was sooooo confident that I can post daily with stitching is I've gotten some framing done! OK. I really cheated, didn't I? I still have some framing to come so showing you bit by bit will work out nicely. The end result, hopefully, will be a new Sampler Wall by end of the 10 days!
First, I will tell you why the post is titled "Book Heaven". Regardez le haul from zee librarie! (pardon me for ruining the French language here!)
My goodness I was spoiled today! Six holds came in all at once. Add that to some I had already taken out and it's a heap. And that's not ALL the books I have either. A lot of these are very new so I'm thrilled to bits! Now...how to read them all within 4 weeks?
The next two photos are of two unusual (to me) butterfly bushes that we have. The first has orange ball shaped blossoms which we had purchased eons ago. Funny thing is the lilac coloured one is one that just appeared in our garden. I think there was some natural cross pollination involved. Both of these are really tall, reaching hard for the sunshine. I took the photos with my arm pointing up to the sky! The bees love them and I am happy to do something to please the bees!
Finally, the good stuff! Here is "Lo, How a Rose" by Brightneedle, all dressed up! (oops, the middle photo is a bit fuzzy, but the one following should make up for it.)
She is such a pretty piece - all young girl with pink flounce, don't you think?
Summer appears to be finally here in our neck of the woods and the grumpkins seem to have left town! ;-)
Thank you, dearies, for visiting with me! Please come again tomorrow!
