Yesterday morning after cleaning and laundry I decided to take a ride to St. Joe to see the kids. I wanted mom to go but she was not in the traveling mood. It was mild and sunny and I had a nice drive. I stopped at Michaels to browse and waste time because I wanted to pick up lunch for them and didn't want to be too early. So, I took my time and checked out areas I never go to. It was interesting with all the Easter stuff out. Cute decorating items too.
I picked up lunch and enjoyed the visit. I almost stopped at the lake to see how much ice had melted but decided to wait and check back next month. On the way home I picked up a pizza for DH. That freed up my evening to stitch so I finished one of the purses I'm working on.
I used an embroidered fabric I dyed for the back. It is textured and I poxed the dye for an unusual look.
I like it and plan on dyeing more. It is a heavy/mid weight cotton, sort of canvas like.
Now back to embellishing the other one this evening. It is another sunny day so I think I'm going to take a walk and go through the garden and take notes on what needs to be done. The electric company cut large branches off my Red bud tree and that is not a happy thing. I'm sure they were damaged from the fallen Hickory tree during the storm months ago and they just cleaned it up, but it is where my hammock goes and I swing and look up at the pretty pink blooms. After the wedding I'm putting all my energy into the garden. I'm planning on a covered area with plants liking filtered sunlight so mom can join me for tea and lunches this year. Her meds don't allow her to be in the sun for very long.
Well, I'm off for my walk. I hope you enjoy your day.
