Celebrations for the USA! Such a great time of year to celebrate together with family and friends!
The above needlework of the flag is a reproduction of a civil war soldier needle book.
A stitch along from Nan Lewis at Threadwork Primitives.http://threadworkprimitives.blogspot.com/2014/05/civil-war-needlebook-kit.html
It was a fun patriotic stitch. Her projects are super and love the primitive look.






What are you stitching this time of year?
Maybe today more stitching for me as rain is coming down and makes for best to stitch!
Enjoy the holiday weekend everyone and keep safe!

Summertime




- Summer has arrived with our longest day or summer solstice.
As I walk the evening the sounds I hear are these cicadas. It is their 17 year breeding time and come with calls whistling through the trees.
I am searching for the 7 different wild flowers to lay on my pillow for all the spirit of summer and health. On my walk, I also came upon some wild Yarrow. This is believed to bring good health when placed with my flowers this night.
It has been a very warm humid day... So no bonfire for us tonight! Another tradition practiced in many places around the world. Maybe even one around Stonehenge.

Blessings are always abound when experiencing the joys of summer and health.


As the sun sets and the sounds of the cicadas grow silent ...
I tuck my flowers on my pillow.


And fall asleep with all the gratitude of enjoying this beautiful day!

Summery Days give way to gardening.





I'm finding joy in planting the miniature gardens and...


- My antique birdcage...
Sunday the cicadas arrived here. Which only happens every 17 years! They live to mate then die once again after 6 weeks. The amazing nature around me.






This is one that landed by me. The coloring of it are magnificent!
Much gratitude I have in sharing these wonders.
What have you witnessed?

Happy May Day 2014

Happy May Day. Very chilly and rainy here... So find I'm looking through some other May Days. I still remember the fun May Day celebrations in Hawaii.






- Here I find I'm enjoying the beautiful daffodils. I do have much gratitude for the beauty even through the misty cold rain.



Enjoy the the springtime around you.

March

Wow, this has been a very long, long winter.❄️❄️❄️
Hurray, because March brings celebrations. Birthdays, springtime, new birth, beginning of Easter season.
My grandson and I began by making shamrock decorations.
It was the first time to get those hands in paint. He normally does not like to get dirty. Really Hudson? But he had joy doing just that, this day.��
It always brings an adventure and smiles when Hudson comes to play!

Happy March!��
