To me it is very rewarding and soul-filling to be able to relate to others with similar passions. To know that I am not the only one who has a love for Stitching, Wool Felting, Crazy Quilting, and on and on makes me happy. vbg
The above photos are gifts for my readers. I created "Miss Sunshine" a Dotee Doll from Silk Ribbon Embroidery and lots of beads. I also made "Two Polymer Clay Projects" for you all too. The face can be used as an embellishment on a crazy quilt project or beaded for a necklace or brooch. The other piece with roses and dragonfly can also be used in the same way. I painted them with PearlEx powder and then bake them so they sparkle. The last gift is "100% Linen Flosses in 12 Pastel Colors" that might appeal to my stitching friends out there.
So there is "Three Gifts to Giveaway". All you need to do is leave me a message and your name will go in the hat for My Sweetie to draw in two weeks on September 9th. I will send the three gifts anywhere in the world. So please all leave me a message and will look forward to reading them all.
I greatly treasure all the friendships I have made over the last 3 years of blogging and these wee gifts are a small token of my appreciation. I truly look forward to another year of blogging and chatting with you all.
A Beautiful Gift from Mother Nature. Please have a look at My August Booms, I think you will enjoy looking at them. I think I write from my heart of feelings in connection with my quiet life surrounded by my beautiful gardens. I think the "Everyday Beauty" finds me more often than I find it. I walk out into my garden and find myself in awe of what Mother Nature has left me... a flower that bloomed overnight. Such a beautiful gift!! And it just appears there; I wasn't even looking for it. I grab my camera and snap a photo. I've always taken pictures of my gardens, but now I also think of sharing the pictures with my readers. I know they would enjoy seeing the beauty too. There is beauty everywhere. The above photo is of a Sedum "Autumn Joy" which I have several of.
This is a close-up of my sweeties favorite bush, the Hibiscus.
This plant is another lovely one which keeps my garden with lovely color, the beautiful Estilbe.
This lovely bush I just planted this summer. It is a Limelight Hydrangea and I can hardly wait for it to get very grand in size. It blooms change color and gives interest to the garden the whole winter.
