Say hello to my friends.....

Once a month a group of gals from Jo Ann's get together for fun, food and ...
I am lucky that Mr H did the cooking...Pasta,Italian sausage and Antipasti. Wine soda and a little Vodka Liqueur called Kinky was also enjoyed. Dessert was Angel food cake with fresh strawberries and whipped cream.  Lucky to have these gals as my friends. The garden welcomed them with lots of blooms..
                                        newly opened just for the occasion. I am off to work for the next 3 days....makes for a 4 day work week for me. I much prefer the 2 day week! Thanks for stopping by to meet some of my work friends....hope you have a wonderful day.

Thimble in the mail

I received my 2nd thimble from Gema in Madrid Spain...
Gema also made a lovely scissor fob . Her note to me was in Spanish...I only speak a few words so I used translation and got the message okay. The only thing I do not know is if she received my thimble to her.... hopefully she will let Kim M know. Then I received a message last week from someone who read my blog and asked about a thimble exchange because she also collects them. I just may have to find another display box! Work was real busy these last two days. My hand really suffered and there is no time to go for an injection. Luckily I do have the analgesic gel which does help. Simple hand stitching is what I can do at the present. Poor Red, she is lost out in the forest......
I will be emailing the June Card Exchange list out tonight.... so still a little time to join. I am really enjoying the cards and handwritten notes. I am hoping to sit outside for a bit today. My last relaxing time I had a hummer curious about me and I managed to get a picture of him...

they are  very curious and very territorial. When another enters the area, they quickly start to defend their yard..... even with lots of space from more and 2 feeders in the back yard as well as one out front! Mr H has enough flowers to tempt them...
really fun to watch them hover about and those tiny wings fluttering so fast. I have several hummers around the house...this is one of my favorites...
it is suspended from the ceiling just above and to the left of my computer desk. When a breeze enters the kitchen, it floats gently. The birds are wood and metal. The Kachinas like them too!
I would like to work on a couple simple projects today.... they are in the ready to go stages... so unless I get real lazy, I should be able to play around with at least one of them. Truth be told, I can hear the soft call of the Goldfinches.... I do get distracted~! So glad to chat with you today. Thank you for the kind words and most of all for your friendship. Have a wonderful day.
