Stitching....flowers and laundry


What a combination...stitching and getting the laundry done. I can not imagine doing laundry by hand....this morning is towels...just how did our ancestors do it. I remember when The Brother Alan was born he wore cloth diapers but at least we had a washing machine. Going to take it slow with the stitching making sure to take those breaks. Remember my new friend Verdin~~~~
yesterday he sat and watched me watch him!  I love how his head is blends right in with the golden marigolds. He seems to be alone here, never more than just him. I never see him go to any other flowers. Nice to know we are providing food for the feathered friends. We do put seed out occasionally but that brings such a mess and chaos. I would much rather allow them natural foods and since we do have many types of blooms at all times in the garden that is the best way for them. Besides it then provides those "volunteer" flowers! . One of my goals is to find and finish this year....that is if I do not get side tracked as usual. I must share this with you

What a lovely bright spot in my kitchen! I know it is only one bloom, but it is beautiful. Outstanding is really what it is. Look at the color...so very vibrant. When I got it, there were several flowers so I am hoping that more will show up.  How about these yellow tulips..
I bought them 2 weeks ago...and they look as fresh today as then. Having flowers in the house as well as outside just makes my day. All colors all shapes and sizes. So the guest room is ready for my visitors next Wednesday, my how fast time has passed! While putting something into the craft closet or was I getting something. Anyway, I found a started Hardanger project and I hope to work on it this week. By the way...don't forget about my Un-Birthday celebration.....you can read about it here I will be putting together my gift for my Un-Birthday friend. I will draw a name on Saturday February 6th. Guess that is about it for today.... no stitchy pictures today but I hope you enjoy the flowers. Thank you for your wonderful friendship and kind words. Have a wonderful day.

Wow what a beautiful bird. He is the sweetest thing and he visits you. Those tulips are gorgeous. I love tulips they are one of my favorites. What is the name of the one with the red bloom? It sure pops with color. I can't wait to your Hardanger project.
