Welcome dear needlefolk friends ~
What a wonderful week of rejoicing...now
fully recovered from my scary wasp ordeal!!
Tuesday, I finally "Beegan" stitching
on my soon to be released Bee Sampler...
Stitching the wonderful traditional
alphabet in this samplar was so relaxing!
Right now I'm working on the border,
saving the center motifs for last...
Sooner Begun...Sooner Done
Sewing is the best medicine for me...
My soul yearns for my daily dose!
I'll be working my needle with
great passion to bring to you this soon
to be released Bee Samplar!
Love old Beekeeping photos...
Delight yourself in simple things,
and your heart and soul will be overflowing!
These little gofers look so cute and innocent...
Cute maybe...but innocent hardly!
They are very busy digging tunnels every where!
Do you have little critters like this in your yard?
Discovered a fallen nest this morning...
Taking a closer look at any fallen nest is so fun,
to see if I can find any of my thread clippings that
I scatter around the yard for them!
Hooray, this one has several woven into
the center of the nest!
I love how this little bird chose such
an interesting choice of fibers...
Lots of seedy little sprigs!
We had a line up of endless
Barn Swallows on our power lines...
They just kept coming and coming!
All this busy activity lasted for about 3~4 days...
In the seventeen years we've lived here,
we've never witnessed anything like this!
Look how loaded the Chestnut trees are this year...
I'm sure the squirrels are patiently
waiting for harvest time!
Have you ever seen a Chestnut up close?
They have a very thick prickly outer skin that
continues to dry.
When they are ripe they fall to the ground and
the dried outer skin cracks open to reveal
the chestnut hidden inside.
Weekend Soul Food...
A man's heart deviseth his way: but
the Lord directeth his steps.
Hoping you will find time to relax
into your stitching chair this
