Sunflowers in the hoop.
I'm leaving tomorrow to meet up with five of my husband's siblings and spouses for a few days of camping. My house doesn't have air conditioning but our camper does so I thought this would be the perfect time to get something basted and in the hoop to take along.
Last night I just had to give a stencil I won long ago a try in the center of the Sunflower. It fit perfectly (although I didn't center it perfectly) so I pounced it and started on the stitching. We'll see how much I actually get done while I'm camping. There will be lots of games of Scrabble and Euchre and Hearts and Poker and singing and guitar playing around the campfire. Usually there are three generations at the camp outs but no one could get together until now this year and a lot of the grandkids are in school now. I'll miss all the kidoos and new babies I haven't yet seen.
The Sunflowers in the flower gardens were my inspiration. Lately I've seen a Goldfinch perched on some old Sunflowers pecking away at the seeds. They should be full by now. They pecked away most of my Purple Coneflower seeds. You would think they would be grateful and pose and peck when I am out in the garden with a camera. But no!
Catch you later!
