Hi, guys!!!

Don't know where this summer is going, but it is almost gone!!!!  I guess it's because I keep extremely busy!!!

I just wanted to drop in and share with you some of the things I have been working on.  Fair warning -- it is across the board!!! I have made cards, embroidered, crocheted, and done some photography.

Now, where to start...

Went on a photography shoot with the Ladies at the PPCC.  We went to Long Vue Gardens.

Getting ready... go.

Here's a few of my shots at the Gardens.

I like this shot through the doors of one of the patios.

Hot day -- relaxing.
Shot of one of the fountains.

One of the roses in my garden.
Another shot from my garden.

I picked up my quilling tool to make the flower on this card for a dear friend's birthday.

The Ladies at the PPCC wanted to start scrapbooking, so I'm leading a class and we are making a toilet paper mini album to start.  Looks like it's going to take a few classes.

Embroidered some burp cloths for a newborn. Then made the little card and the box to present it.  Colors were pink and yellow.

Got to meet Big Daddy from the Food Network Channel for a cookout (also got an autographed photo for myself and my daughter, yay me!!!!) and met the famous embroiderer, Mr. Walter Floriani, during an embroidery class.  Thoroughly enjoyed both outings!!!!!!

I also got to crochet four purses, a coin purse, three pairs of earrings, and a cap.  Didn't get pictures of all of them before they went out. 

Made two of these, one for each daughter.

A gray and white checkerboard clutch.

 This is a first, I also got to crochet a black purse just for me.

Not the best shot, but you get the idea.
It has a fleur-de-lis lining and pockets.

Whew!!! Think that's enough for now.  I am presently about to start on a black and gray crochet baseball cap for the hubby and a couple of crochet earrings for the daughters and grands.

Hope you guys enjoyed!  Feel free to leave me any comments.

Thanks for stopping...bye.
