Sunday Snippit

I decided to have a bit of “yard sitting” time this morning.   I took my tea and my tablet and headed outside.  It is going to be a bit of a challenging week ahead so there probably won’t be much time for enjoying our gardens and the fruits of our early spring labors.

I took the seat facing my Knock out roses so I could enjoy their lovely blooms while listening to the latest Create and Thrive podcast.  20190609_105524.jpg

I decided that I needed to bring some of those happy flowers inside with me when I was done with my “sitting” time so I could continue to enjoy their beauty and lovely fragrance.

Of course, as I transported these delicate beauties inside they dropped some of their petals.  Rather than discarding them, I decided that they would add a nice touch to a small dish of seashells sitting in front of the vase of flowers.

Seashells, rose petals and a red, white and blue table topper.   Yes, summer has arrived.

On a side note, I think I might be a bit obsessed with these freestanding lace bookmarks.   I ran 5 more of them on Friday on my embroidery machine while I was working on a different project on my sewing machine.  20190609_131638.jpg

I have a list of other colors and designs I want to make.  But, one of those red ones is mine so Ceil, your green one is safe.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday everyone.

Bye for now.

Freestanding Lace Bookmark

Today I was finally able to give this to my NY BFF (belated birthday present) and so I can now post pictures of the freestanding lace bookmark I made for her.    She is an avid reader,  so I knew it would be something she would put to good use.

I made FSL snowflakes at Christmas and enjoyed making them and loved the way they came out.   Having had such a positive experience with those,  I decided to try something else and,  yup,  I  loved making the bookmark too.   I think I will make one for myself now … yes, even though I have a Kindle I do read real books too ….  and then I will be searching for more Freestanding lace projects that I might  like to try.   There are so many beautiful choices out there – even some 3D projects.

Of course, it will not surprise anyone who knows me that I will probably be looking at                    possible Christmas-related designs.  After all, my snowmen do tell me that

Stay tuned.

Bye for now.  Enjoy the rest of your week.
