This is a stitching-related post. Well, okay, mostly stitching related! LOL Just wanted to let you all know that I've been stitching!!! It's nothing big and it's not any of my current WIPs, but the important thing is that I'm putting needle and thread to fabric and making.....an ornament!!
I actually started this ornie a few weeks ago, got it about two-thirds stitched and decided I didn't like the fabric color I'd started it on. Since it's such a cutie, though, I went diving into my stash and found a nice piece of blue fabric to stitch him on and restarted it late last week. Here's my little bit of progress on Another Snowman Ornament (I'm not kidding you; that's its name), a newsletter freebie, by Val's Stitching Stuff. He's on some kind of blue fabric and stitched using Crescent Colours threads.
I'm still working a lot outside in the gardens, both the veggie and the flower gardens. As a matter of fact, I planted some more flowers yesterday and Mark's been busy building another vegetable bed so that we can plant more tomatoes that we picked up over the weekend. Really, can one have too many tomato plants?!?
My daylilies continue to bloom, and I love it! I don't have too many daylilies because they usually only bloom once and then they're finished for the year. I really prefer flowers that have a longer blooming period, but I love the look of daylilies, so I have them in my flower bed.
Pure & Simple, looking purely simple
Golden Girl, very glittery and a pretty golden yellow.
Lastly, San Antonio Firecracker is still popping.
