Good Tuesday morning to you all!!! After another bout of the head doing the hula-hoop last evening, and no blog reading or work accomplished, I feel pert as the robin on the wire!
It is, for the first time, and exquisite morning here; the studio door is wide open, there is a breeze and the leaves are rustling on all the trees, much like old-fashioned silk petticoats piled deep under fancy skirts. It is a delight to sit and write!
I have a lot of photos that have not made it to the blog of late; usually a quick juant in the evening around the house or down the road a bit is all that I need to find something lovely. The light as the sun begins to set allows me to pick up delicate colors in a true fashion, such as the pink of this dog rose. I dearly love these.....their scent is totally different from any of the old fashioneds or from hybrids that have retained their fragrance through the hybridizing process.
Occasionally, there will be one that is almost pure white, either through mutation or the difference in soil nutrients.
Two delightful things this morning; first, the photo below has been posted in the Indiana Weather Service Photo Gallery! So my endangerment of life and metal implanted limb has paid off again! heehee.....It takes so little to amuse me......I am a real weather geek. *sigh*
Second, as I sat beginning to load photos for this post, a humming bird flew into my studio through the open door, hovered for a few seconds (which I am pretty sure equates to *standing still* in hummingbird speak), looked all around and then flew out. That was the best "Good Morning" I think I could have gotten. In all the times I have had this door open, the only thing that has come in is of the undesirable insect variety! LOL!!! (no Yard Man either Ulrike!!!)
Tonight I will gather the names I have for the two pieces below for the giveaway, and get them ready for random picking tomorrow morning. I have been amazed and excited/delighted with the response to this and am anxious to see to whom's homes they will go! Hopefully whoever gets them will love them too!
The time has flown since I made these and posted them.....where has June gone? Is it just me? It seems the month has been washed away by all the rain....30 days gone, disappeared with little to show for it and even less tangible work in my studio.
Oh, leaf count for those keeping track---today, it will top 100 so I can breathe a sigh of relief as soon as I have the next two sets of pattern stitched and out. Then I will cut them and proceed with other parts for the wallhanging.
Again, this post has been all over but that is my life right now. A balancing act, or better yet, one of juggling.
If you haven't signed up for the give away, today is the day to do it!
And I have to say adieu and get off to work....I hope you all have a wonderful, creative day with a few pleasant surprises thrown in for good measure!
