thanks for stopping by
I really appreciate your interest and lovely, kind messages!

have been doing various things this week

I worked on this tulip piece to submit to a local show - not sure when they decide who is in
I am a little unsure about this it finished? I usually add much more to things,
so am having a hard time letting go
maybe if it doesn't make it into the show, I can rework it.......or not
what do you think??

Tulips are my speech

I have to say..........
am getting a little tired of all this rain
I know it makes all the flowers happy and all
but I am getting a little mouldy!

the men of the garden

I also find it quite ironic that as soon as
the government declared the Southeast as a drought zone
it has rained non-stop!
ooh! just saw a sliver of sun peak out as I wrote this
at least it is trying

our upholstery class ended
I enjoyed it so much am planning on
signing up for the next session in the Fall
we didn't finish our chairs
for the black one; all I have to do is put the final fabric on
the other one is missing the springs!
(no wonder it was so cheap) is partially started and will be worked on in the next session

and finally;
I am in the middle of a Green Woodpecker
a request from my mother-in-law
she hasn't been too well lately
we are visiting them this weekend
so I will need to finish this by Saturday morning
to take to her

I have done quite a bit of the stitching so far
and haven't a clue what I will do next
guess just see what happens
bit of lace......a few buttons......
the usual!

thanks again for being here
hope you are having a flower-filled Spring/Summer

oh! almost forgot
a few years have gone by since my beloved Sophie passed away
and we are getting a new cat!
we pick him up from the cat sanctuary on Monday
he is THE FLUFFIEST thing I have ever seen!
so, guess I am diving back into the world
of cat hair everywhere
