We start each week by airing out the quilts, weather permitting.  We’ve had glorious weather!  A huge, never before seen event in the garden –DSCN7690

My daughter’s good friend is marrying later this month.  I think that this St Louis 16 patch says ‘congratulations and much happiness’, would you agree?  My embroidery skills are lacking, but I mean well!  I admire those who can shape perfect letters and forms very much, but know, without a doubt, that mine will always be on the ‘primitive’ end of the scale!  And it’s all ok.  I am learning new things that I needed to know.  I am learning that if the work makes me happy, then that is enough.  I am enough.  Repeat after me ….. lol

There has been some knitting –DSCN7679

Today’s Buzz; Honey bees inherited stings from their wasp-like ancestors who sting to attack, to kill, to paralyze.  Honey bees only sting in defense and as a last resort.  If you brush them away and the stinger remains embedded, the bee will become disemboweled and die.
