~ Last Day of June ~

 Hello Friends & Folk ~

irst I'd like to wish my sweet  Mom
 a very HAPPY 87th Birthday!
... 87 trips around the sun!
{Love you Mom, more that all the stars in the sky, more than all the grains of sand on all the beaches and more than all the little blue flowers on the wallpaper}

෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴

So I'm working on a few little embroideries for tomorrow's 
July 1st edition of Early Work Mercantile 

this one has a basket of black eyed susans ~ 



~ this style of stitching, as I refer to it as 'humble stitching',  is my favorite...
and adding varied embroidery stitches with freehand cross stitching makes it unique.

I should have checked for cat hair!

 my inspiration for these embroideries is coming from my gardens of course...



I love our wild queen ann's lace
~ it's like growing snowflakes in the summertime!

me thinks i will replicate this in another embroidery....


෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴෴

 And I really have to get new puppy photos for you...
we have two puppies left, our Big Black {or Mr. Big as I call him}
and a sweet little girl that we are calling Dolly {short for Black Dahlia} who was named by Chris ;)

In the meanwhile...
here is momma Pepper, 'auntie' Roxy and Peter doing what they do best...



unless she's chasing deer throughout our woods,
Pepper is never far from 'her man' Peter...

she loves to stand like this...
when she can find him standing still for once!
ha!!

Well I am off to stitch...
what are you all working on?

Hurrah for your mom! Hurrah for Black-eyed Susans! Hurrah for July! And snowflakes in July (they would look lovely in a stitching)! And hurrah for your man and his faithful companions! I don't do FB, or I'd be there!
