"And we know that in all things
God works for the good of those
who love Him ...."
Happy Sunday everyone!!! I have been having a bit of a struggle this weekend, thus the scripture reference above. Wise words we all need to remember.
I know you are all interested to hear how Pearl is enjoying her cross stitch lessons. Well, she's really excited! I knew she would be : ) The Q-Snap is a bit difficult for her to hold, but resting it on a pillow is the perfect answer!
She was so proud of her first stitch ... I just knew you'd want to see it : )
I promised her that sometime this week I will show her my stash : )
It is a hot, muggy, humid, miserable day here in the devil's playground. I discovered this when I ventured outside to take a photo of my first iris of the season.
Unfortunately I don't remember the name of this iris. I know I have written down somewhere in my files. You can see the remainder of some of our rhododendron blossoms there on the right, & those ball-shaped things beyond the iris are peonies. Two peony bushes were planted by incompetent landscapers 2 years ago. One died; the other kind of shriveled to near nothingness. There was a small lump of roots last year which I dug up & planted in this spot, not expecting it to amount to anything. Well, surprise! It will be interesting to see what color this peony is. I know it will either be pink or red.
I decided to also take a photo of this little area against the garage where the clematis has decided to bloom wildly & the bee balm is happy. I don't know what it is about this year but all the plants are really healthy & doing great!
I've been stitching as much as possible this weekend for IHSW but I haven't accomplished as much as I hoped I'd accomplish. Every little bit helps though, I guess. I'll share photos tomorrow : )
