Weekly Update

It's Thurs. and time for my update on the SAL, "Away We Ride." Yesterday, I started a gift for my friend in Chicago.  This will slow down my SAL stitching for a bit. She had total knee replacement 4 weeks ago and mine is just four months ago.  We have had a great time emailing and sharing our miseries with our knees!! We have been good friends since our daughters were babies and believe me, that's a long time ago!
Our sunny warm weather continues! We have to water the garden at least twice a week.  So now you all know where the Summer is visiting.  We are getting ready for Summer to go visit elsewhere and leave us to our clouds and mist!!!!!!
I'm sharing a few plant photos. As I have mentioned before,  I decided that this year I would cut more flowers to enjoy in the house. So I'm sharing my latest little bouquet with you.  We also bought a new hydrangea a month or so ago.  It is on the deck for at least this year. I think it is beautiful.  Of course, I am a hydrangea lover.
There will be lots of activities out at the lighthouse this week- end as Sat. is National Lighthouse Day.  I will try to get some good pictures for you to enjoy.
Thanks for joining me and have a great coming week-end!
I almost forgot, tonight is the first pre-season Seahawk's game.  Of all teams, we are playing the Broncos! Go hawks!

I was happy to finally get to add some color.

 I love Pumpkin Pie by GA.

The daisies are still blooming along with the black-eyed susans (rubecia).

Pistachio Mophead -Hydrangea.  I love the pink and green combo.
 Thanks for joining me today!

  11. Hi Barb, lovely stitching. I had to chuckle when you mentioned watering twice a week. A sure sign we live in opposite corners of the Evergreen State. Last week I watering at least once a day. ;) I am one of your newest followers too. Looking forward to seeing your stitching, flowers and of course the beautiful area of our state you live in. My blog is at peddlerjo.blogspot.com. Guess it was not the Hawks night but the Mariners instead. :)

  13. Your Away We Ride is looking great! I am finishing mine up ( today I hope!) but that border has been plagued with nasty FROGS for me. Look forward to seeing your progress! Your SAL group motivated me to get working on mine again. Happy stitching!

  16. Your new hydrangea is looking so great. Hydrangea are my favourite flowers and we also have some in the garden. Unfortunately they often perish in our cold nights in the spring, but this spring they all survived and we have wonderful pink hydrangea flowers this year.

    Very nice progress on the BBD piece.

  17. I have to laugh when I read your weather updates, Barb, as we are just the opposite! We haven't had to water all summer... It has warmed up a bit here and we're having nice cool nights--perfect for a good sleep.

    I just love hydrangeas, too--and that one is a beauty! I love watching your Away We Ride progress, too...

    Hope your weekend is going well :)
