This one is Summer Spot by The Drawn Thread that I stitched a couple years ago I think. I found this great square wood frame at the dollar store a couple months back and brought it home...great price and I figured there would be something I could frame in it!
I also sewed together a needle case that I had finished stitching quite some time ago by Lorri Birmingham, and had never gotten around to sewing together. I forgot to take a picture, but it is nice!
This morning I woke up early to the baby (Gracie) crying, and then heard Amy in the bathroom battling either a stomach virus or food poisoning, so John and I have been babysitting the kids all day. Even with all that, I still managed to clean my closet (oh so pretty and organized!), clean out and wash my purse, do three loads of laundry, 2 loads of dishes, and I even have a loaf of banana bread in the oven. I don't have as much done as I would have liked, but hopefully the mood will continue for a few more days and I can finish up what I would have done otherwise today.
A flock of Cedar Waxwings visited us this afternoon, and they absolutely loved my Red Hot Poker plants. Here are a couple pictures of them sitting on top of the pokers. At the same time a hummingbird was flitting around trying to get in on the nectar...it was quite entertaining. The waxwings are still around in the yard and it's been a couple hours now. It will be fun to see how long they hang around.
Well, it's about time to take the banana bread out of the oven. This is a new recipe to me, so I let you know if we like it any better than our old family recipe. This was someone else's old family recipe from over 100 years ago...hope it's good!!!
