What I've been up to ~ Warning, Picture Heavy

Hi Everyone.  I hope you
are enjoying this very hot Sunday.
Just thought I'd show you some
of what I've been up to lately.

Had a little stitching time for 
myself.  I'm still in a patriotic
mood, so I decided to stitch up 
and finish this Americana
ditty bag.  The house is still 
decorated for the 4th, so I hung it 
right up.
* * * * * *
Thought I'd also show you some pics
of the garden.  I spent a few weekends
earlier in the summer planting and the
garden is starting to show off.
I cut some of the hydrangea blooms,
since there were so many and put them
in my antique sap bucket.  It's
painted the sweetest robin's egg blue.
* * * * *
I do hope you enjoyed your visit and
thank you so much for stopping by.

Your garden accents are great. You've inspired me to look for a metal or stone piece.
