This lovely cool waterfall is in our neighborhood, and oh does it look so welcoming on these very warm and humid summer days. We are not permitted to go in the water there, but oh, is oh so tempting to take one's shoes off and sit on the rocks with the cool water splashing all around.......Thankfully, we are having light showers here this afternoon, and hopefully it will cool things down a bit. I am looking at some pretty dark ominous clouds out there.
Tomorrow morning my stitching group are coming here for a day of blissful stitching. Fortunately we have central air, so it will be lovely and cool. I decided to make some cranberry pecan biscottis to serve with iced tea when everyone arrives.
The past few weeks have flown by, and I must admit that being a full time nurse to my dear husband, who still is not permitted to weight bear on his operated foot yet, has left me pretty exhausted by each day's end. Hence, even though I sit down after supper with needle, thread and linen in hand, I often find myself dosing off instead of stitching. Occasionally, I have managed to stitch here and there, on 'Barnwood Buttons', and hope to finish up the stitching soon, so that I can sew on those adorable buttons!
For weeks I have been searching for the perfect birth sampler to stitch for our newest little granddaughter, Kyleigh, and I am really excited to stitch this beautiful design! I have chosen different threads other than the recommended ones, but I think that they will look lovely.
I just have to share this adorable photo of Miss Ella with her latest most favorite acquisition........'Hello Kitty'.
Notice that Miss Ella and Kitty are about the same size! Miss Kitty is even wearing her bathing suit, and she arrived in a pair of matching shorts and pink sandals too, all ready for the beach! Just tooooooo cute, don't you think?
Well, I am thinking that, since it is 4:oo pm, it is time for my afternoon tea, and definitely a little stitching before it is time to make supper.
Although I am way behind on reading my favorite blogs, please know that you are always in my thoughts, dear friends. I love visiting with you and always appreciate your wonderful comments so much!
