Stitching and Planting
Well, this nice long Labor Day weekend is about to come to a close, and it's back to work tomorrow.
But, I won't complain, because I was able to do just what I wanted and that was a little container gardening and playing in my craft room.
It's still warmer than I'd like, but I got out early in the morning so I could get some planting done before the heat came.
The day I brought this Gerber Daisy plant home, it was in the middle of the afternoon, and by the time I got it out of the car it looked so hot and wilted. (I know the feeling)
I was afraid I had already killed it on the way home in this heat.
But once I got it cooled off, and into a container with a little TLC and fresh soil and morning sunshine, it perked up.
Once the heat started to set in, I decided I would go inside (in the air conditioned house) and do a little collage on canvas.
I know she might see this post, but it's not like it's a "special" surprise. I think she understands when I want to "try my art out on her" LOL!
Finally, to the stitching.
I had some outdoor fabric and made a couple of pillows to go on my chairs in the courtyard.
I think they look cute with the chair cushions, don't you?
I'm getting ready for our "outdoor weather" if it ever gets here!
And...just a few sneak peeks of another little project. I'm not finished with yet, but have really enjoyed the hand stitching part.
So, there you have it, a relaxing, fun filled long weekend and now I need to get back to work and make some more money to support all of my gardening/crafting habits.
I hope you have enjoyed the weekend, and was able to do something you love to do!
Thanks for visiting,
