A Finish and Flowers!

I hope everyone had a great week-end and are enjoying the Olympics! All that TV gives me a good excuse(as if I needed one)  to stitch  the evening away." Salem Village" is all finished.  This picture doesn't show the subtle differences in the dark colors but they are there. I'm not sure what I'm going to do -frame or finish another way.  It ended up being a little less than 7x7.  That little creature was suppose to be black but it looked like a devil to me so I stitched him red.



 I think this is the best year for daisies.  This bunch is about 5 feet high. We have 2 more bunches in other places in the yard all from the same plant that we divided two years ago.

This hydrangea is called "Little Lime".  It was newly planted last year.  It is a miniature version of Limelight.

 I do love those little pink buds.

 Our Pia is doing so well this year. I think they like all our cool weather.

Notice the little blue centers.

Thanks so much for taking a look and have a great week!!

  1. I love your salem village, the little tiny devil in the middle,hahaha. And I am so jealous of you daisies. I want daisies in my yard to much, but can't grow them. I know that sounds crazy.... but I've tried 3 years in a row now and they have all died.
