Good Monday morning to all.
This is going to be a super busy week for me!
I'll be doing the lay out for
Bittersweet Gatherings Pinkeep Drum, so I can
have this new release available on Friday...as promised.
A couple of days this week I'll be out of town on
a road trip to Missouri....hope to capture some great
photos to share on Friday.
I collect many things, and antique needlepoint & petit point are a weakness....
~ This large pillow feels just right in my favorite sewing chair ~
~ It includes both needlepoint & petit point stitches ~
~ I found this lovely pillow in a Mississippi River town antique shop years ago ~
It's stuffed with real goose feathers, because every so often one with work
its way out and prick me in the back!
It seems like the month of June just flew by!
While running errands I passed this wonderful lady waving to me....
So I turned around, parked my car, and asked her if I could take
her picture....she was happy to!
She was surrounded by lots of lovely well kept flowers.
I think she likes all the attention she gets from the traffic passing by!
....so I kindly thanked her and said goodbye.
In some ways I'm glad the month of June is almost over,
because it has brought some very nasty storms
to our area.....
While on our Sunday drive ~ in La Crosse, which is only five miles away these
beautiful big trees were uprooted....SO very sad to see.
This tree landed right on the end of this house, with lots of roof damage.
We passed dozens of big trees down just like this one....what a mess to clean up!
About a mile from my house I get to pass by this flock of sheep every day
on my way to the post office.....
Looks like today they are either eating or sleeping!
......and now for some weekly
~ SOUL FOOD ~
Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
She seeketh wool, and flax, and WORKETH WILLINGLY WITH HER HANDS.
She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.
She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
She girdeth her loins with strengh, and strengtheneth her arms.
She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
She stretcheth out her hands to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.
Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.
She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
Strengh and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of KINDNESS.
She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
Favour is deceitful, & beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands;and let her own works praise her in the gates.
~ Proverbs 31:10-31 KJV ~
Have a lovely stitched filled week...until Friday!
