Welcome dear friends,
what do you have planned for this fine day?
My weekend was so relaxing!
This is the way I passed my time...
Every possible moment was spent stitching!
My goal was to have the first of three borders
finished by Monday morning...
Yay, I met my deadline...barely!
Working on 40ct with a
stitch count of 286W by 285W...lots of tiny stitches!
One border complete...
Two more to go...I'm excited to get started on the next
Once I finish these three borders,
I can enjoy stitching the wonderful motifs
that Lydia worked into her samplar
back in 1827...she was only 9 years old!
Right in front of the Studio are
Arbor Vitae bushes, and for the past
several weeks every time I walk between
the farmhouse and the Studio a Robin comes
flying out...just squawking at me!
With my curiosity in full force,
look at what I discovered...
Four little babies...sound to sleep!
Mama Robin is finally getting used to hearing
my voice and she's not squawking at me
like she did at first!
What fun to check on the babies every day...
They are starting to get fluffier...caught
them sleeping again!
The country roadsides are so
pretty this time of year...
Wild Sweet William!
On Sunday my family and I went on a short road
trip to Winona, Minnesota, luckily my favorite
photo man Sam (son) was with...
When we passed this family of Canadian Geese
they were up on the edge of the highway, we turned
to get photos and to get them back in the water!
As soon as we slowed down the Gander (male)
really started honking at us...
The female Goose stayed close to her
Six little Goslings...
The mother Goose stayed quite,
while the Gander did all the honking!
We were so relived to get them back to safety
and away from the busy highway...
What a special site to see!
One happy family...
Sam is so quick with his camera!
Plus, he even got a video...
Thank you so much Sam!

fall into divers temptations,

faith worketh patience.
O the joy of holiday weekends,
