Stitching In My Garden

Sleeve is Finished!!  
My next post will show you the finished dress!

In the morning I can sit under the fan in the shade and be comfortable. 
Today it's raining and I love the rain!

 Join me!  I would like to show you what I see from my rocking chair!

I plant flowers that hummingbirds and butterfly's like.
I also have Basil and Rosemary.

I am always looking for pretty Garden birds and critters.
I listen to the water from the fountain, the birds (they can empty the feeder in one day!) and my wind chimes.
You can't see all my pretty roses close up.  I love my roses.
You can see them in my Garden!

I am joining Tootsie at her Flaunt Your Flowers Friday.  You should see her lovely garden as well as others!

Your garden is the most peaceful-looking place - a perfect place to sit and do handsewing - I can almost smell the aroma of the beautiful flowers when I look at your pictures!

Oh, it is peaceful. And I rarely buy roses that don't smell good so you can smell them! Thank you for sitting with me as I stitched.

What a special spot to create in, Jeannie!
I ♥ your entire garden but especially your roses...I'm trying to root some cuttings from my sister at the moment. They are a spectacular salmon-pink color. Keeping my fingers crossed that they'll take.

Your little sleeve is GORGEOUS! I clicked to enlarge the photos so I could see it better. can't wait to see the entire end result. :-)
