Geraniums who would have thought?

While stitching these squares and a counted cross stitch from Herrschners (that I forgot to get a pic of) I realized how important my eyesight is. I could use bifocals or reading glasses or something to magnify these stitches. But I am truly blessed for the eyesight I do have! What would I do without my eyes or my glasses? No stitching that's for sure!

I think Geraniums are a blessing. Particularly red geraniums! The vibrant colors against the wide green leaves, just make me feel comfortable. Reminds me of old summer days and one can bet that I will always have red geraniums in my yard each summer!
Jurnee is getting to be such a big girl! Cannot believe 1st grade is almost over!

I love geraniums too! They are summer aren't they?

I remember being told I had "old women's" hobbies. Stitching and quilting - I figure that by the time I am on old woman I should know what I am doing!

And Jurnee is a beautiful little girl. Hold on to your hat - before you know it she will be graduating!
