Finished Kits for Busy Fingers




So nice to have these kits done for New Beginnings. Hope they are
very useful to someone there. The couch companion is from Helen's
blog here and the needlecase is from Khris's blog here.

My youngest daughter liked the stitchery pattern - she said "Mum,
I like the lollipop flowers"....very cute.



I was also really pleased to see this gorgeous bloom in my rose garden
yesterday - one sole rose out of all the bushes - but what a lovely one it is.
It's called 'joyfulness'.

Wistful Wednesday


"I Am" by Nichole Nordeman....beautiful song and lyrics....
Jesus cares about the tiniest of details as well as the big.
I am thankful.

WIRSP!

I seem to have many works in really slow progress....
This looks promising - fabrics pressed, draped over the sewing machine,
ready to cut for the couch companions on my to do list complete with
finished stitchery....must get to that today.



 And then there's my garden...it is always in really slow progress.
Just had to cut some of these today to enjoy inside. It's a gorgeous antique
rose called "Julia's Rose" - given to me by my lovely MIL. And the fragrance
is so lovely.
It would help if I didn't get so distracted at times......I found this yesterday at an
op shop for my daughter for a mufti day at school ...she loved it.
So let's see how we go today working on those WIRSPs!
Glad we're not going camping this weekend...but that's another story.

Driving Miss Daisy

The last week has gone so quick. Swimming lessons, my birthday, family for an overnight stay, appointments....and here is Thursday already.

Just for laughs wanted to share this with you.....driving my children into swimming lessons my son snapped this one of a very talented driver (sorry about the grainy mobile phone photo). Wouldn't want to pass on the left - might get side swiped! And the bottom of the cargo is not far off touching the road marked by an old red rag....you don't see this every day.

Precious Moments

Look what I snapped today. I saw this lovely butterfly from my bathroom window this morning. Was able to sneak a photo from the laundry door. He was very obliging in showing off his wings for a short time. Too gorgeous not to photograph - especially in my duranta shrub.
