I wish I knew where these weeks go! Here we are, Monday again. It has been a crazy week around here. My husband somehow got bit by what the doctors believe was a brown recluse spider. I cannot tell you how awful these bites are--it was horrendous. Let's leave it at the fact that he will be on IV antibiotics for awhile. He is improving though.
The weather has been rather lovely in our NY corner of the world. Had a couple of bad heat days but for the most part it's been enjoyable. Yesterday was gorgeous and we had a nice father's day. All the children, save one who was working, came up to celebrate. We had a nice barbecue and even got the Papa Bear outside to blow the dust off him!
Have not been able to accomplish a whole lot this past week, the doctor runs put a real crimp into productivity. But here's a photo of something I've been working on while in waiting rooms. It's photoed (is that a word???) on top of one of the racks of flower petals I'm drying. Smells like a florist shop in here. We are now drying on the back porch as well as an unused upstairs bedroom which has been passing as my still room. I now know why you need an official still room. The back porch is, of course, a way in and out of the house. There are petals all over the place. These breezy days lift the dried petals every time the door is opened---sigh.
The visions of potpourris are dancing in my head as we dry tray after tray of petals. So much fun. Nothing like opening a jar of summer sunshine when there's snow on the ground.
What do you suppose the embroidery will be???? Stay tuned.............
Don't forget to stop back for Pink Friday--this week's theme is English Tea. Could be interesting! Some of the boutiques at Make Mine Pink specialize in tea, some in the china, the selections should be absolutely amazing.
