Quietly enjoying my Saturday....

Just popping in with some photos of my day - nothing strenuous on the finger. :-)
Saturday was enjoyed by reading poetry and appreciating wonderfuly calming art...
Reaquainting myself with old books of household hints from a century ago (and more beautiful paintings...)
Gazing in wonder at the simple and untouched beauty of newly opened roses...
Laughing about some buttons that are destined for a project for Blossom...
Gratefully acknowledging that my daughter is doing work my hands cannot right now...and her gentle love for our Lily Rose.
Stitching quietly a sweet BOM to share with you in July. Something we can make together for the rest of the year...
Enjoy your weekend too,
Hugs
Jenny

Hi Jenny.
Your pix looks lovely. A friend's daughter has asked me to teach her to embroider. Any clues on a project that is not too hard for her first go?
I hope your hands heal. God bless

Hi Jenny,Glad to here you are taking it easy and Blossom is there to pitch in.I loved your picture of the lady in the hammmock. I sometimes dream of strolling around my garden in a long cream-coloured victorian dressand have tea and strawberries in the garden.Am I alone in that?
Amazed at the quick Health care you have. Our non emergency response is much slower.
