Sunshine on my shoulder.............

Sunshine on my shoulder.............

Sunshine on my shoulder definitely makes me happy!!!  For most of the week the sun has shone through gloriously and the skies have been more beautiful than ever.....like big cotton balls looking down on me as I walk the pooch and check my autumn flowers.  The zinnias & "Autumn Joy" sedum never disappoint! And who can help but smile back at the happy sunflowers and black-eyed susans!

The ten commandments of sewing.......

The ten commandments of sewing.......

As first printed a long time ago in Sew News magazine.....love this!    Thou shalt put away no ironing board before its time.              Thou shalt not expect meals, clean laundry or a                sparkling house when sewing calls.            Thou shalt walk through this room as if treading on             needles and pins.     Thou shalt not use my fabric shears.   Thou shalt not covet my sewing machine.                Thou shalt stick...

Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, And summer’s lease hath all too short a date.

When it's hot it's hot!
