Living With Gratitude...

Brynwood Needleworks - Mother's Day Stitching
I hope you had a great weekend. The weather was beautiful here in SW Florida, and we spent a lot of time outdoors. Of course, Tag and Bella teased to play in the pool (just like little kids), so they were wet the majority of our daylight hours. Both have shiny, soft coats now...even if Tag's coat is a little "blurry". 

Handsome and I did yard work together, trading our usual tasks this time, with good reason. I have a whole new appreciation for how much stamina is required for the jobs my husband performs around our home. Our yard looks great, and I'm busy planning a small container garden this year. Not much, but just a few vegetable plants.

We shared a quiet Sunday, too. I managed to make quite a bit of headway on May Day, my Sweet Stitches embroidery. Funny how these panels, which I can usually stitch up in about two days, have taken me nearly a year to complete! (And that's just the stitching!) I am committed to finish these panels and assemble them into a quilt before this year is over. (Just watch me! giggle)
This week is going to be BUUSSSSYYYY. I'll be cutting wallets today in preparation for assembly. (My hardware is due to arrive today. Yay!) I think you're going to like my new designs. 

I'll be meeting up with girlfriends this week, too. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday are booked already, but I still have Friday open in case someone wants to get together. Don't worry, though, I'll still be working so I'll have new things to show you.

I have something fun planned for you, too! If you'd like to send pictures of what you're working on right now, I think I'll put together a "Show and Tell" post so I can share your project with my readers! 
Just email your photos (using the "Email Me" link in my right sidebar) along with any information about your project and your blog URL (if you have one) and I'll include you in my Friday post! It's my small way of thanking you for stopping by from time to time. I'm always grateful for you!

Not a single thing creative or fun is happening in my world at the present time. I have lots of "want to's" and lots of "need to's" but they shall remain in the pending part of life for now. I am merely bumbling along and yet thankful for each and every day! Embracing Creative Bliss is my goal...

I am excited about emailing you my project. And seeing many others in progress. Thanks.
