Almost Finished and Some Flowers

I just finished stitching this Piece. It will be a pincushion,with a lace border,filled with walnut shells.. Now I need to put it together. Its a BlackBird Design called
Basket Of Memories. Done on 32 ct bone linen using Gentle Arts Aged Pewter threads.
(with some of my Lily of the Valley)

And these are some of my Flowers Blooming right now in my Gardens..
Lavender and White Lilacs

and the last Plant my Dad Gave to me before he passed away. He was a Florist and Grew Beautiful
Plants..this is a Lavender Azalea...with very large blooms...
Hope you enjoyed these. I think this is my favorite time of the year,and its so beautiful
around my neighborhood because the homes are all older and the flowering plants
are mature and so beautiful. So much color..it makes you happy to be alive just looking at them all

Have a Great evening

So sad.....and some new silk floss n things

Remember my Beautiful Just Nan enamel Owl box..with the mouse to put in its tummy? I sat him on the top shelf of my puter desk and made sure he was back so he would not fall. My grand daughter came to visit and was on my puter...and I guess she must have knocked it down,it broke,and then she got rid of the broken branch..and set it back on the shelf with only two legs...and needless to say soon as I sat at the puter it came tumbling down.(I could not understand why...cause I was so careful of where I put him) I thought I did it...til I tore my puter room apart looking for the missing branch that broke off..and then it hit me.Hubby said she must have been afraid to tell me...but....at least I could have tried to fix it. I even went through the trash thinking she threw it there ...no branch...So there went $65.00 down the drain.Not to mention the fact of the hours I wasted tearing everything apart looking for the missing piece...I ordered another one,but it makes me  upset that she felt the need to hide the fact it was broke...accidents happen...I would have been frustrated,but It would not have been the end of the world....GRRRRRR New ground rules for her in this room from now on...:-(
On a Happier note...got some new silk floss,My "Flowers" by NIcoletta Farrauto came,as well as my charts for the little House needle book that goes with the pincushion set

I also purchased this beautiful Mother of Pearl Thread Winder from Italy
at Silver Needle.com
And New Vintage Reproduction Silver Witch Scissors for my Halloween Stitching

At least these pretties arrived to lift my spirits...I am finishing a large order
from my website...and then I plan on doing nothing but stitching for the next week...Orders are nice and I am glad I am busy..but I need stitching time
just for me...
Have a wonderful Evening
Smiles n Blessings
