 Well--maybe even the last '6' months--someone stole them, I think!!!

I have been busy--but only with hand sewing-- it seems!

Got the rest of Joy's bom block of the month embroidered--

anyone want a slice of strawberry chocolate cake???

word garden that goes with the carrot block--

a teacup with pretty purple flowers in it--

and the word-flowers -that goes with this teacup--
now I was thinking I am all caught up--
she gave us a new one this week--I did get it traced off this morning-
and plan to get it colored in when I get off the computer!!!

and last  Sunday I got this truck all colored in ready for embroidery--
but I have to embroider the purple truck first--so still lots of embroidery in the future!!!

And here is '3' little birds in counted cross stitching I did this past week or so--

these two will be gifts once I finish them into pin cushions--

and this one was for me-but I am thinking of something else for her--sooo???

Yesterday, I made it over to Molly Mutts our thrift store--
and these 3 things walked out with me--

the lace piece is really a small window valance--but I will use it as a doily--on the new shelving--
under my quilt pile--at least that is what I am thinking-the blue vase I think will go on the window sill and maybe I will get a large air fern to put in the top of it!!  
and talking about plants--I got 2 new planters and 2 new small plants in the plant shop on the way home-
and yes --both of these needed 'water' and looking much 'peppier' now!!

On Thursday late afternoon my son and his girl friend picked me up to grocery shopping for my months worth (well--3 weeks is usually more like it) and they got us supper at Red Lobster--it's been about 5 years since I had Red lobster--I love their lightly breaded butterfly shrimp and then those biscuits--yum!! We came back here to eat out in the gazebo again--I am still not eating in restaurants-(Covid counts are way up for this area --again!!!)
