To waste time in visions rare;
Of vain dreaming, oh, beware!
~Caroline May, 1887
In addition I have already cut some fabrics out for another piece that I would like to stitch as well and so as you see I have been very productive already today. When it is warm and the sun is shinning very early it is so easy to bounce out of bed and begin the day .. long may this incredibly gorgeous weather last. I am so happy working outside most days, only in to blog and to use the sewing machine to edge cut antique French linen pieces.
Last night my husband was working late again and so I was in my sewing room, oh my the sunset was truly stunning and I watched as the sun said goodnight but with a promise that it would be back here this morning early with some wonderful warm weather, and it did not disappoint ...
I managed to dry more flowers from the garden successfully and so they came out of the books and
more went in. I am loving using them and I love to put them into sealing wax and then stamp it with a wax seal, my favourite right now is the one with a hydrangea on it. So beautiful and looks good on envelopes, in journals and mixed media pieces as well. The flower of choice in this photo is apple blossom I dried from one of our apple trees. I wanted to cut lots but only cut four, other wise no apples in September and that would never do!
I have my work basket at the ready and lots of slow stitching to do as well as a piece of mixed media that I would like to tackle maybe over this weekend. We have not arranged anything this weekend as so if the weather is good ( and it promises to be) we will spend our time at home and eat our meals in the garden as well.
Well that is it for me today but I will be back here again on Monday, so until them I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and that the weather where your are stays sunny and warm for you. As always dear reader, Happy Stitching! XX
