A Few of My Favorite Things

Winifred Gardner before and Winifred Gardner now.

I really can't call her Winifred anymore because I used my initials and this years date. I also changed the dog to look more like my Sammi. This is actually working up fairly quickly. The picture doesn't show how really gorgeous the fabric is. Libby dyed it herself. Just beautiful. Stitching is definitely one of my favorite things.


These Shasta daisies came from one of my gardens. Daisies and daffodils are my favorite flowers. I have about 5 of these little gems around the house. So cheery and happy.


Summer and tomatoes go well together. I love all kinds of tomatoes. I am waiting for the heirlooms. I made a tomato and mozzarella salad for lunch. Yummy.

The last of my favorite things today is fresh cherries and blueberries. I made a cobbler with them. Does it get any better? I think not. It was a wonderful day at my house today. Hope your day was as excellent as mine.

Thanks for all the great comments on my last post. I appreciate them all. Have a great week. Until next time ....Happy Stitching! Deborah

Id like to invite everyone to read a blog post today of a woman who joined the old order Mennonite church from the outside. I'm extremely lucky in publishing her very first, and most likely last post on Amish Stories. A lot of work was involved in her getting permission to be even able to write anything on the internet, and permission was given by her bishop. So please stop by and read about a woman who gave-up her car and other worldly possessions for the person that she loved. Richard from Amish Stories.
