Yes, I mean "daze" not "days" as I feel like I am in a daze these days. We have had such a long stretch of sunshine (and some heat) that I feel like I'm just in one long magical summer day. I do a little of this, a little of that, and *poof* don't ask me what day it is! Hence I am posting on a Tuesday. Meh, what can you do?
Since I left you last, I have filled in the house for Miss Jane Harris and completed the plant on the right hand side.
I added birds all around. I am holding off on the birds on top of the chimneys as I may put something else up there! We shall see.
Here's how the bottom third of the sampler is looking. Next I will be doing the band in the middle of the sampler.
I feel happy just looking at her! In case you are wondering, I have digressed greatly from the original colours but still keeping with the reds as the predominant eye catcher.
Here is a rare photo of a Canada Day flag flying nicely (as opposed to limply) at our house. It was a very hot day too!
Here's me sitting down under our banana tree(s) after a long day gardening. The banana plant started here 9 years ago as one little plant. We now have 5 trunks and even potted up a small baby one that we will likely pass on to a friend. Obviously the mother plant is happy tucked away in this corner of our yard!
Indoors, a couple of our orchids are re-blooming! I don't know the names of these but I know the first one is very fragrant and easy to grow!
Here we are again, at the bottom of the page, at the bottom of the post. Let's see how quickly I can stitch the middle section of the sampler! What always helps my stitching is if I have a good audio book to listen along to. This was what I had just finished and I definitely wanted to keep listening, and therefore stitching, nonstop!
Thanks for taking time to visit, and your comments are much appreciated! By the way, if you have a good book you are reading or listening to, I would love to know what it is!
Have a great week! I hope you are enjoying some lovely weather.
