Glorious Saturday

It is a glorious day in the Lilylovekin home, the sun is shinning and it is warm. Our back yard is full of growing things, bees, wasps and birds. Sitting on the deck the distant sound of neighbors lawn mowers fill the air. I've finished watering my plants and am relaxed in knowing that my garden is happy. I bought some green bean plants that later today when the sun cools down I'll put into the ground. Lately I've not been feeling too creative so I've gone back to following rules and patterns and have been doing a needlework project. It is called "THE PROMISE" and I've promised myself that I would do it for several years, it is a sampler of Noahs Ark. I love the different stitches and the little charms that are used in it. Before I was able to start I had to go to the craft store, buy a good light with magnifier on it so I could see the linen. Oh the joys of age!!! I hope you all are having as good a week-end as I am.
