To all my cloud friends in the USA, have a safe and happy 4th of July. To all of my cloud friends that live in other parts of the wold, have a great week.

A Little Bit of Everything

Hi there all you cloud friends! I hope the early days of summer are good for you , that is, if you live in the Northern Hemisphere.  For those of you in the Southern Hemisphere, happy winter!  I would like to thank you for the many kind comments I got about the passing of my step-mom.  We (I'm the personal representative but I could not do it without the help of my DH) are now busy with the business of being a personal representative( previously executor).  There is a lot to do but I am happy to be able to do these final things for her.
Now onto the stitching world.  I have finished Nantucket Summer but still need to finish it.  Thanks to Priscilla, I am trying one of her ideas for framing.  I have started "Fancy Blackett-Tea for Two" by Pineberry Lane.  The minute I saw this one I knew I wanted to stitch it for my DD.  Fancy and a pumpkin head lady are having tea.  In my world, they are having coffee!  My DD and I often meet for coffee in the town between us.  This design is just perfect considering how  often we like to do that! No photo yet.  Of course, I'm still working away on "A Ghoultide Welcome" by Plum street.  I have the right side of the house finished.
Finally, I can't post without sharing my garden with you.

Here is the whole project! the colors look washed out in this photo.  They actually are quite bright and pretty.  I keep looking at Plum Street's Liberty's Welcome and wonder if I can do another huge house.  We will just have to see!

 We have had lots of thunder storms, very rare for this area.  Anyway, one day the sun came out and we saw this lovely rainbow!

 This little bird thinks she owns our back yard and the feeder!

  It's the time for day lilies!

 and hydrangea!

Thanks for joining me today and have a wonderful week-end!
