Cactus bloom

Thought every one could use another flower to brighten up their day. This is a cactus that my mother-in-law gave me. This is the second time it has bloomed, the first time it was much smaller and yellow. Talk about a change, wonder what it will be the next time. Hope every one enjoys

July Hardanger Christmas Ornament


Here is the first in a year of hardanger Christmas Ornaments through Nordic Needle. This is a wonderful club where they send you all the material and once a month they send you a new pattern. I know it doesn't show well but, this is actually two ornaments sewed together to make one. I could have left them as two but, decided they look a lot better together.

Stargazer Lily



I've been absent for awhile, been busy with summer things and my arthritis has been kicking up lately too. Haven't been doing a lot of stitching but, I thought you all would like to see a real beauty in my garden. This year she is out doing herself. Her colors are so rich and you can smell her sweet smell all over the back yard. Happy summer every one.
