Hasn’t it been pleasant this weekend – at least in the morning.I went out first thing, it was almost – cool.Can’t believe I’m typing those letters!School started in our area last week, and on the day it was to start when we went out for morning walk, I noticed some volunteer, blue morning glories among my overgrown front flower bed.It brought back memories… being on my childhood home front porch in my brown plaid dress waiting for friends to come by so we could walk to school together and noticing the morning glories for the first time of the season.
In those days, pants were now allowed, much less shorts!!And we went to a neighborhood school, so yes, we walked.And now, the old thermometer on the monitor tells me it has risen 10 degrees in the last couple of hours, so back to realityJ.
This week I received the gift I won from Beach Cottage Stitchers blogiversary giveaway.Cynthia allowed me to choose the item of my choice from her store, so I chose Alyce Schroth Sampler Recreations ~101 Pennsylvania German Sampler.Aren’t those silks scrumptious?Thank you so much, Cynthia.
Yesterday I went to a class at my LNS, The Stitch and Frame Shop, to have hands-on learning to do a flat fold.It was a great class – thank you, Maggie!I used some tiny beaded trim from Hobby Lobby, and the fabric I selected as the ‘door prize’ at the Manning-French Hen stitch day. I think it turned out very well, and believe there will be more of these to come!Thanks for dropping by, and I’d love to hear your thoughts today!I always appreciate what you have to say.
