Mother's Day comes early...

Greetings all!~ We had such a windy and stormy weekend! All is well in our area though . Some other cities and towns nearby were not so lucky. I just hate storms! A few years ago we had a local dairy lose a lot of their bulidings during a tornado and they still are not back up to business full speed. I really miss them! Thanks so much Catherine , for checking on me. I really appreciate it!
Well Mother's Day came a little early to my house. Hubby planted two rose bushes and the pictures just do not do them justice! I hope he plans on taking care of them because I'll just kill 'em! LOL!

He also decided to recycle a tire into a planter and spray panted it green .It looks a lot better in person .

The pretty pink doesn't show up as well in this picture. I will have to try to see if I can get a better shot.

I got the stitching finished on Psalm 145! Yay! I can't wait to get it into a frame. I have one picked out so we'll see how it works.

I need to finish up the bellpull this week as Mother's Day is just around the corner! I will show more progress on that later. I also started a couple of new things this weekend that I will be showing this week as well. Stay tuned!!
I hope the rest of your day goes well and I look forward to you all visiting again!
Thank you all for all of your wonderful comments and continued support! It really helps me get through the day!
'till next time,
Don't be a stranger,


  1. Just popping over to say hello to one of my special 'flowers'.

    Your stitching is lovely. (Do you get tired of hearing that?)

  2. Gorgeous roses!

    Congratulations on your finish :o) Looking forward to pic of the finished framing...

  3. Stormy days around here too :) But we needed some rain...

    LOVE Psalm 45 it is gorgeous!

  4. Lovely finish! And roses are hard to kill--I basically ignore mine and they are all doing fine.

  5. Everything looks good - the roses, the tire and the stitching!! I love the color of your roses - enjoy! And I am glad you are okay, no harm done from the storms.

  6. What a lovely finish, Sharlotte--I love it!

    Good luck with those beautiful roses--I, like you, just can't seem to keep them alive for some reason...

  7. Very nice finish. :) And I love the planter! What a good idea.

  8. Nice finish! :D I think the planter looks very nice. :)

  9. Lovely stitching, roses and great recycle of the tire.

  10. Your new roses are lovely and I adore the tire planter.

  11. Congrats on your LHN finish, love the colors! What a fun planter box your hubby designed for you. Here is a great tip when pruning your roses that my Mother taught me. ***You can snip/prune your roses as short as you want as long as the cut is above the lowest stem with "five" leaves. If you trim them too short they have a tendency to go "wild" and have tons of sharp thorns.*** Sorry I've been a stranger, just too busy with "life", but I am trying to catch up....Smiles....

  12. Congrats on your finish, it's lovely! Beautiful roses you got, the colours are beautiful.
