This is what is sitting on my porch, patiently waiting to be planted in the rose garden. Can 7 rose bushes, 2 of which didn't survive winter, really be called a rose garden? Oh, sure they can. We play fast and loose with the rules around here!!
These are the replacements for the two lilly-livered cowards that gave up the ghost during our latest, mild Kansas winter! These rose bushes have real names but lets just call them peach-y and yellow gold! Works for me...Doc, don't get excited...we know YOU know their real names but....come on!!! You can't really expect us to remember them, can you?
This is what I've been working on today...
...the Amazing Grace plaques that I thought I might get started yesterday. Surprise, surprise, surprise!!! (say that with a Gomer Pyle accent and then giggle!) I got a couple done!
I finally found cheap rectangular frames at "the Wals-mart" ($3). I had all the other stuff...just odds and ends don't ya know?!? Old buttons, muslin, flower stamp and bit and pieces of fabric turned into a nice little gift, I think.
The next one I do may be a flag motif or maybe a God Bless America theme.
This is what the pattern looked like when I drew it up way back in Feb. Now don't look so shocked...I have been known to draw up a pattern whole years before I get around to executing anything!!!
Pardon the funny looking format...I just grabbed this out of my publisher file...If I was what is known as "computer literate" I could probably make this sketch look good...but no such luck...alas, I'm clueless!!!
This is what I'm working on for my son's wedding next summer...
...a proto-type for sunflower table arrangements.
Sunflowers in a blue Lucite glass tied up with a colorful ribbon. Cowgirl n pearls, the lovely "Bride 2 B", liked the idea and we have tons of these glasses left over from the last family wedding..."Make it over, Make it up, Make it do or Do Without"! sort of a family motto! Anyway, their theme is Prairie Wedding, so Sunflowers seem in order! Now, we're just waiting for silk sunflowers to go on sale...real, I mean REAL cheap! Did I mention that I want them to be really cheap?
This is what I read yesterday while I was waiting for the tornado that never arrived....
I'm a sucker for an Amish romance!
Tonight's supper is:
- Grilled pork chops
- Baked sweet potato
- Green Beans
- Salad from the garden
and (woe is me)...
- sugar free jello
Today's Verse: The name of the LORD is a strong fortress; the godly run to him and are safe.
(I'm running as fast as I can, in every way that I can, every time that I can...to that fortress!)
Thanks for stopping by my lovely little cherry tomatoes!
