John Foster Update

I don't have much to blog about today. I have done some work and John Foster. I took the photos outside hoping to get better color. I don't think it was much better as the linen still looks gray to me and it's not, it's antique white.As soon as I get the blog done, I'm out to plant in the garden. We got a very pretty heuchera called "Brass Lantern." The tag says it has brassy gold and red spring color on maple shaped leaves It was tempting to buy more plants but we are not clear of frost till the middle of May. We work at the lighthouse this week-end so for my newer followers, I'll have some pictures.

Sorry for the wrinkles. It looks like the red changes color, it's just a wrinkle.


This tree was fun to stitch! It went much faster than I expected.
I hope you all have a great end of the week. Tomorrow is my day to work at the school. We are doing discussion groups on stories so it is always interesting to hear what the kids think!
Thanks for taking a look!

  4. Yes, these early warm days have tricked us into believing it's summer! We often get frost into May, too, so, as tempted as I am to plant our annuals, I'm holding off.

    Lovely progress on John Foster, Barb--enjoy your day with the kids at school. They say the funniest things :)

  7. Just became a follower of your blog. I've been reading it for awhile and think I have commented once or twice but just have to say how much I enjoy your photos; they remind me of the trip we took to your beautiful area a few years ago. Also enjoy your great stitching and hope that your hand will be much improved soon!
