Stitching Progress Pics

This is the latest progress pic on this beauty. I'm finished with all the flowers now and just have the borders to go. My plan is to stitch on this one week a month until it's finished, which shouldn't be too much longer. (There's really not a line across the bottom of the fabric like the picture shows. That's just where my imaging program spliced the 2 pics together.)

I've also been stitching on Blessed Are Those by Blue Ribbon Designs. I'm doing this as part of a SAL on a bulletin board I belong to. It's stiched entirely in Crescent Colours on a piece of hand-dyed Sweet Wheat linen from Woven Workes.


It's August in Texas!

And it's HOT!! It's been so long since I've posted; I'm blaming it on the heat! We've now had 42 days of +100ยบ temps here in Texas, and 18 days straight. That's just downright too many for this native Texan! I'm ready for winter, or to go live in a walk-in refrigerator! The little fan under my desk at work is a favorite hang out spot for my coworkers, since it's just about the coolest place in the building. LOL!

Not much going on in the garden right now. My plants are continuing to grow like weeds, which many could be classified as. I spent a little bit of time out weeding one day last week. Things are just blooming like crazy!

This is my esperanza. It's been blooming like crazy all year. The bright yellow flowers are so cheerful. Even my husband said he likes this plant becuase it's so happy looking! :)

My mystery plant finally bloomed. I need to take a picture of it because it's got white, lavender, and blue blooms on it! It's very pretty and if I knew what it was, I'd get more to plant in the fall.
