Mail and a Hummer
Love to get mail... I know we all do. My Round Robin exchange from Heather arrived...
isn't it pretty. I requested that my partners stitch flowers for me. I have mailed out to her and hope she gets it soon. But we all know how finicky the mail can be and especially with a custom form attached. I am not sure what/how I will use my pieces. I know some of you have a tree that remains up all year long with this or that on it...a thought. I am just about finished with my next RR exchange piece. This has been my first RR and it has been fun. I love doing exchanges!
There is a new Hummingbird in the garden...
and a rose bush has grown. Our little rose bush has not been doing well with all this heat. If it can make it through the rest of the summer and winter, I think it will be a pretty bush next year. Yesterday as I drove home the temp was 110. Taking care of the garden is a challenge. Mr H just planted some sunflower seeds; he is very persistent. This morning the Desert Mobile goes to the Hyundai dealer for a scheduled check-up so I hope to get some stitching done while I wait. Usually getting there for 7 am, a first appointment and it might take an hour so I wait instead of coming back home then having to go back out in a short time. I also picked up the new Piecework magazine yesterday so I will have something to read instead of a golf magazine in the waiting area. In my neighborhood as a child we did not play golf...we played horseshoes and of course bocce. I can't see hitting a tiny ball and then going to find it and hit it again...All those golf carts. Out here we have them driving on some of the streets.... a hazard, but that is another story for another time. Speaking of time, thank you for sharing some of your time with me today. Thank you for the kind words and friendship...have a wonderful day.
