Let's give ~D~ a welcome this week!
My words for D are for daring, delicious, daisies, and devotion.
What are yours?

Today was our sewing get-together for the Four Mad Maids, but dear Wendy had obligations elsewhere and could not make it. Boy, was she missed!
But Michelle, Angela and I had a replacement fourth at our table - Blossom! She sat and stitched with us, and that was lovely because she rarely stitches anymore.
Michelle and Angela brought me some beautiful birthday gifts, and I made gluten free lemon curd cupcakes for morning tea...
Michelle gave me some wonderful books that I will begin reading tonight...
...and Angela brought me a new pear to add to my collection! A green one this time...
I was blessed.
Another new colour was added to Romeo Roses yesterday.
I'll be uses this thread for the stem stitch borders.
Don't you LOVE the names Cottage Garden give their threads?!
Sweet Melon...Latte...Butter Bean...Sweet Gum...mmmmm...
My plan is to finish Romeo Roses tonight and frame it tomorrow. I'm really excited about this design!
Over the weekend I spent time making gifts for my young grandsons.
A craft apron for Deegan, and a new cushion for Calab.
I think they'll be happy, as every stitch was made with LOVE. I miss them so much since they moved away.
One of the things I thank the Lord for is the ability to make gifts for my loved ones.
I also thank the Lord for the thoughtful gifts my loved ones give me. You see, I have a real love of nature and trees (especially trees!), and I quite often snap a whole heap of photos of unusual trees for no reason other than they give me pleasure.
This birthday my sweet Blossom gave me my own tree...
Again, I give thanks for my blessings.
Mr E is away working for the next few days, so I have someone else 'guarding' me at the moment.
While I catch up on 'stitchy things' in my sewing room, little Bob-the-Dog sits faithfully across the doorway...
Have a wonderful week, won't you?
