Nature is amazing. Tiger lilies are just so beautiful.
They are also HUGE ~ over 5' tall.
The blackberry lilies are so sweet, too. The seeds were compliments of my dear friend Sheila :)
Blog friends are the most amazing and thoughtful people. A surprise arrived in the mail. Donna, aka the Dirty Martini Queen, sent me a package. In it was this sweet little doggie . . .
. . . and this amazing sampler she stitched from a Pineberry Lane pattern. Not the "E" in the diamond at the bottom. She stitched it in memory of my Ellie. So sweet. I still miss that little spitfire but her memory makes me smile through the tears. Thank you so much Donna.
OK. So I still refuse to go to Pinterest. I just don't need another thing on the computer to suck me in, but I know one day soon I will most likely weaken. I recently got an email from Sandy in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She found a picture of her partially completed rug (from a retreat at Sauder Village) that I had posted on my blog that somehow ended up on Pinterest. She so graciously sent me a picture of it completed. It is absolutely WONDERFUL!!! She didn't say whose pattern it is, but I think that would be a fun one to hook. I just love her color choices. Thanks, Sandy, for taking the time to send this to me :)
One crazy thing. I filled the washer this morning and when I went to add the soap and clothes, there was this huge spider sitting on the agitator under water. WTH??? I went and got a little fish net and of course I missed him. Finally started the washer for a few seconds and the second time was the charm. Now snakes don't bother me (well, maybe if I found one in the washer it would) but I.DO.NOT.LIKE.SPIDERS!!!
Thanks so much for all your kind words and well wishes on my last post and as always for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
