As Promised...

Hi there!

I'm a bit slow, but I did finally take pictures...and here we go!!

I invited a few people over to stitch last Friday, but just two showed up. It was last minute, and I really need to invite people sooner, as folks already had plans. Understandable, since it was a holiday weekend. Oh well, next time I know better! We had a good time though, and I did make progress on my Violet sampler as well as the rose quaker. And here they are!! No wet noodle for me!!

It was one of those weekends though...pretty days, and after all the rain the flowers just outside my door were blooming! Yay! The sweetheart rose was a gift from my Mom and Sister. I thought it was going to die, but after a few weeks outside it started blooming again! I'm so glad!
These geraniums have a story. They are about 5 years old now, and each winter my parents would take them to Florida and enjoy them and bring them back in the spring. The past two winters I had to baby them inside, and they just didn't do as well, but they are the prettiest color, I just can't bear to get rid of them...

It was time to mow the lawn, so I had to get a picture of DH and his rippling muscles. Now I know you can't see them under his shirt...but believe me they are there *wink*...ok the truth is, I had to get a picture of him "working" to show my Mom that he actually does do the yard work! LOL Even Thomas came to the door and had to watch, it was an amazing sight! LOL

And lastly, I had to show you what I have to do to my arm now. Each day after my shower, I have to put these bandages on and keep them on all day and all night. Doesn't that look comfy? NOT!! And believe it or not, I have to do this myself. I think I do a pretty good job doing this one handed and getting it the right tension. It's still itchy and uncomfortable, but you gotta do what you gotta do (as my mother always says).

And, that's a wrap! LOL
