I have some random odds and ends to post... First, I finished a wip:
This is a little octopus, some waves and sea grasses from the Seashells and Seahorses pattern packet. I think it makes a really sweet picture. I stitched double lines of back stitch in two blues for the waves:
and I combined these two greens to highlight the sea grasses:
Second, some I took some really interesting garden pictures. How fuzzy is this bumble bee? I am growing oregano and I have let a lot of it go to flower - the bees love it!
This is a picture of the beautiful berries on an oregon grape bush:
I have quite a few sunflowers blooming:
Here are a couple of blooms from my "Queen Elizabeth" rose bush that is
always fun to photograph!
and a bloom from "Chrysler Imperial"
And the best for last - Berit and Rego! Here they are relaxing in the shade:
and here is Berit - wishing I would come out of the weedy herb garden!
