As a Bee....

As I'm veeerrryyy slooowwwly working on my Ethnic Star, I have been pecking away at some other things,,,,I am done with the rug, and I love it!! How scrappy can you get? I am so glad I pulled it out and started over! It is flat now and the black-ish stripes just give it a little definition, don't ya think? And the outside has been calling my name, large cuts of lilacs make my kitchen table feel like a garden,,,
and cut roses fill a vase on my computer desk, and, oh....girls.... I think this must be what Heaven smells like?
Liberty was sick, running fevers, caughing, poor baby. It was just a bad nasty virus going around... so we took Elly home with us for the week, and had a ball with her! She had the three of us going non-stop. It is so wonderful to be able to have a "tag team" with the kids, I get worn out and pass her onto Auntie Leash, then she passes her onto Papa, then back to Granny, whew, time to rest!
The holiday weekend was wonderful, with cookouts and bar-b-q's and family and friends.

My prayers and thanks go out to all the families who have sons and daughters, husbands and wives, mothers and fathers, who are fighting for our freedom, God bless us all!

Sounds like you had a great weekend! The colours of the rug are gorgeous. You're right about the definition, I think the dark stripes were a stroke of genius.
I can almost smell the lilac and roses from here. I don't have any roses in my garden - maybe I should get some.

That last picture is the sweetest rose in your garden, she has a wonderful smile. Glad you got some "Granny" time in there even if it was a little hectic. Where do they get that endless energy? Can we bottle some of it?

I really like the oval rug, that is next on my list!

Love the rug....I would add a rug like that to my list of things to do if I could ever find the end of the list to add it to!!

Love, love, love the lilacs right now! Your toothless blonde is a doll - with what sounds like boundless energy. Family and friends that come to the rescue are priceless. You go, Granny! (And I love your rug.)
