Holiday Stitching

Wow have not posted in a while. Its been hectic with Christmas Orders. Didn't get to stitch nearly 
enough and it makes me sad. I truly love to stitch. Maybe now that orders are under control I can stitch more. Dec 9th and have not purchased a gift yet! I swear every year this won't happen, yet time gets away from me and here I am again. Anyway here are two things I did stitch...

Design by Nickys Creations

Being in my Garden brings me such Joy..The flowers all seem to have their own little personalities
Some are shy,some are bold,some just say hey look at me. The Hummers flit through out the gardens,
with their Beautiful Colors Like flying  fine jewels ~ the Butterflies are so busy doing what they need to do before it gets cooler. Baby birds announce their arrival..a family of chickadees just did the Baby Wrens. I have a olde chicken feeder in the Garden that I've painted with "Leave a Place in your Garden for Fairies to Dance" Humm is that what I see out of the corner of my eye while sitting and reading in this Restful Place? Maybe....

Baby Wren

  Something is wrong with this Bird? But he sure is hungry...

Hybiscus in the Morning.

And the Happy Faces of the Lazy Susans..

When I am in the Garden I have to give thanks for the beauty of Nature..
How can you not smile with these lovely ladies all around..
