I've noticed that more people are 'following' this blog. Thanks so much for adding your name on the list! Truly I haven't had much to say lately, so I appreciate your patience.
I still haven't taken my finished House and Garden Sampler to the framers. This year has been busier than any I can remember in a long time, but soon I will have a summer break. During the summer I'll be attending classes so that will cut into fun time. That being said though I truly know there will be more time to stitch, relax, and come here than during the school year when I'm teaching. It's been a tough but rewarding year.
Since early May I've stitched a tiny bit on Summer Queen, but not enough to warrant an update picture. I'm just trying to finish the bottom of the dress thus I'm doing little blobs of color over time.
Today I'll share some photos my husband took of our hydrangea bush. Hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers. Looking at them truly makes me happy. I love the full, colorful blooms. Here's a peek at our Endless Summer hydrangea. We planted it about four years ago, and it's really flourishing.
We used to add the chemical to make the blooms bluer, although it's been several years since we've done so. I like these colors just the same!
And one more angle of the shrub...
I just looked back at my photos and found one taken of the shrub almost exactly two years ago! Here is how it looked then:
I think it's progressed in two years, hasn't it? That's exciting to me. :)
Thanks for stopping by today!
